hello and welcome to my weblog. tonight i watched 211 (2018)
when they made the last man on earth (1964), they shot it in rome and they imported vincent price and a giant cadillac so they could pass it off as california. they shot it in all the parts of rome that didn’t look like the rome that people knew; all the exterior shots were in front of these beautiful italian futurist churches or modern apartment blocks. the result was striking but it was very obviously not california
the problem with the american built environment is that it is unique in its awfulness. you can’t shoot a movie in a european city and try to pass it off as an american city because the forces and priorities that shape the american city produce a singular landscape.
anyways, i couldn’t focus on the movie because all the cityscapes were wrong. i think what happened is a halliburton type hid millions of dollars in thousands of bank accounts across as many banks with like less than ten grand in each account and some “private security contractors” are trying to get the money so they are physically robbing one of the banks which happens to be in a small town in massachusetts. i don’t know. it’s dumb
