A tale of how a four-year-old child could become a monster current parents of four-year-old children may find that not so much a mystery as an everyday occurrence. A tale of the kind of cruelty and stubbornness that only children can know, and the long shadows that childish experiences throw. However, there are others besides the Hammer and the Goat to watch and fear for, and the Hammer herself has a struggle to explore with her own nature — all hanging on the toss of a coin. The goat too plays its part, proving there are more ways to solve a problem than with giant muscles; that, sometimes, a giant appetite will serve just as well.
It could serve almost as the prologue for book three — since it is clear that developments which our heroes experience here carry forward significantly into book three. However, it is also a complete story in its own right. The powers that be in the Shining City have been sent a mystery by one of their colonial outposts and a suitable champion is needed to address the issue. Again, the story is carried by a man who never speaks and whose thoughts we never hear, though Newman does well at describing how he signs and sighs his views and desires to others.
There is an intriguing puzzle that drives and completes the story — something more human than demonic. For someone who has crafted a world filled with body-stealing demons, Newman still does a skilful job of blurring the lines between good and evil, and in so doing offers teasing hints about the way The Seven will carry the story forward to its conclusion.
There are few faiths that can endure a millennium or two since the passing of their founder without experiencing — in some quarters, at least — a drift from their original purpose, a hardening of attitudes, a refuge in hypocritical zealotry. To be immovably certain that you are the good guys is possibly the most corrosive corruption of them all. I suspect that the Empire of the Winged Eye — like the Hammer herself — may face its greatest struggle from within than without. Munro works in education and enjoys nothing more than escaping into a good book.
He wrote his first book, more novella than novel, aged 13 and has dabbled on and off with writing stories in a variety of genres for nearly four decades since then. I loved this movie, the venue, the audience. A totally New York experience. Thank you Richard and Dovie! She welcomed in the New Year with her two children in a country house she and Don had bought not so long ago. This brave woman spoke of church and state, faith-based politics, the kashruth of what makes a fetus a human with a soul and what control a woman has over her own body, and when must we speak out for what we believe to be true.

I do hope I will see it soon as Snow White ranks with my favorite Sleeping Beauty among childhood fairy tales I loved. So New York! Dinner with Ben Barenholz at an old favorite of his in Chelsea from before he had moved to the Eastside brought up film history in yet another New York light. His first midnight screening El Topo , his box office all time winner Cousin, Cousine and his experiment with dubbing, his opinions of film today, of the people we know, his remembering having hired John Tilley as soon as he graduated college in North Carolina, and of hiring Eamonn Bowles for his first job outside of college again made me want to write a book!
I plan to look up his history on the internet in the coming year. Ben had wanted to go to Gotham Pizza which has the best pizza in N. Some of my readers might remember Joy Pereths. She was the first U. The first film I acquired on my return to L. I recall that when I made the deal, N. She is now raising money for marketing a documentary film. Susan Margolin of New Video had lots of news and ideas to share now that the company has been acquired by Cinedigm. We knew each other when she was in London working for a blue chip company, BFI if I remember correctly. I bumped into her on the streets in New York quite by accident.
My readers know them as the originators ad writers of Latino Buzz which appears on SydneysBuzz every Wednesday except today! It was the first time we met face to faces. We discussed their wish to bring light to the Latino filmmakers in the U. I love having them use SydneysBuzz as their platform. We discussed the Latin Film Festivals in the U. As I write this the High Holidays have come to a close. Completed are the processes of Atonement, Reconciliation and a Turning Back to what is important with my fellow humankind.
How did a once obscure academic become the Internet’s most revered—and reviled—intellectual?
Until then, Le Shana Tova! A Sweet New Year! May you be inscribed in the Book of Life. Forgive me if my rambling has bored you, though if you got this far, it is a compliment for which I thank you!
Jordan Peterson’s Gospel of Masculinity
To my friends and readers: We are about to conclude the Jewish High Holidays which began 10 days ago with Rosh Hashanah and ends tomorrow with Yom Kippur. In the spirit of this season, I must ask everyone, if I have offended any of you, whether knowingly or unknowingly, I ask your forgiveness.
If I have not published articles I promised you I would, please forgive me. I meant to when I said I would but have so many other commitments and things I must do. I am sure that the article is not forgotten and I may get to it in the coming year. But I ask forgiveness for overreaching and for commitments and promises I have not kept. I saw so many old New York friends and acquaintances and because it was New Years and a time of reflection, I revisited what were my circumstances when I left it in to return to L. Being in New York represented the apotheosis of all things Jewish outside of Israel, whose films and festivals will be the subject of another blog - excuse me Katriel Schory of the Israeli Film Fund and Alesia Weston the new director of the Jerusalem Film Festival.
When I realized this, my own Orthdoxy fell away from me as if I were shedding a cloak. I understood that my Jewish self was Jewish no matter what life style I would live. And I liked the New York life style most of all.
What a city! So New York, in-your-face, loud, crowded, lots of horns honking, and people: People. The best.
We saw our friends, we saw New York with New Eyes. We arrived by train from the airport, straight to our apartment!
What great rapid transit, even if it is old and ugly, so blackened by dirt and age. I noticed new decorations on some walls of some stations, some works were better than others. I wish we had such a quick easy way to zoom around our fair city of L.
The other half she spends in Truro. Such history! We were invited to a screening by Hisami Kuroiwa , whose friendship goes back to our early days in Cannes, or back to the days she produced Smoke and Blue in the Face with my other old friend Peter Newman. The press screening at the new Walter Reade Theater was a great treat. The Somewhere in Between in the film is a hour restaurant halfway between Ankara and Istanbul. The issues are so much the same as what we are facing today, namely, our own bodies and all that entails.
Both of these films deeply affected me in my own ways. When this happens to me during a film, I know the film is really good because it is affecting a subconscious part of me and of something of concern to me. A thought comes to me which makes my life come together in a new way and I sometimes feel transformed by the experience.
This is my criteria for what makes a good film. Of course story, script, direction, cast, music, costume and art decoration also count, but in the end, it is the emotional impact a film has upon me as a passive viewer which makes it a winning film for me.
The same pertains to me for all art, whether painting, architecture Wow factor here for NYC on the architecture front! At the dinner, prepared and served by Alan and his wife Katie Taverna, an editor, who also has a new documentary about to surface, I was astounded by their home - so New York.

They show the everyday reality for Jews and Lithuanians during the s. If I could have my books on my family published in such a way as this, I would die happy. Speaking of Lithuania and this blog, being Jews in the News, must also cover some other Eastern European news because like New York, its innate character still seems Jewish, even though there are very few Jews there.
There seems to be a resurgence of interest in the subject however, among the third generation since the Shoah. By now his 12 minute short films should have wrapped.
