    Is Hollywood and the Oscars as relevant as they used to be?

    We’ve just seen history in the making last weekend when, for the first time ever a foreign language film won the Best Picture Oscar. Has Hollywood finally learned that there are other countries outside of the US where brilliant and talented people tell fascinating stories? Does this mark a new era for Hollywood in which we’ll see more international talent celebrated or a last attempt of a dying branch of the film industry to stay relevant and "woke" in an increasingly globalised and diverse world?

    • You could also look at 2016, which seemed to be the start of a new, diverse era in Hollywood, with more people of colour and LGBTQ stories, and see why that failed to make an impact (or, at least, as much of an impact as everyone believed it would). – OkaNaimo0819 3 months ago

    • I would still argue that many "problems" that critics have brought up about Oscar voting and the landscape of voters still rings true for many watching the event. I would suggest looking at the Oscar campaign surrounding Greta Gerwig's "Little Women". It was a film that resonated with many viewers of all different ages and received critical reception, but was snubbed in a key category like Best Director. While Parasite's win was an exciting surprise, it feels like the Oscars have not changed as much as they have been touted to change. – Sean Gadus 3 months ago

    I find her quite intense, don’t you? I think she was quite an intense person who felt and thought deeply about a subject she tackled. That was my reading of her based on her writing.

    Susan Sontag and her love of photography

    Interesting. I like an opposite opinion from mine. I felt quite excited when reading her work, like I wanted to know more about the things she’s talking about. How do you mean gross?

    Susan Sontag and her love of photography

    Couldn’t agree more. I love reading the same book at different times in my life. It’s always interesting to see if your understanding of it changes. For me, it usually does, which I believe is a sign that you yourself have changed. The question is: in what way.

    Susan Sontag and her love of photography

    I agree. And I believe this is what’s happening with our society today.

    Susan Sontag and her love of photography

    Thanks for reading. I think she was a fascinating essayist and philosopher.

    Susan Sontag and her love of photography

    Very kind. Thank you! Hope you enjoyed the film x

    Antoine Doinel - Juvenile Spirit of the New Wave

    I agree. Although he was such an important part of the New Wave, his work matured into so much more, especially with such different films like La Nuit Americaine and Le Dernier Metro.

    Antoine Doinel - Juvenile Spirit of the New Wave

    I respectfully disagree. I think that the beauty of the Nouvelle Vague is that it’s not embodied by a single filmmaker. It’s a movement, a wave, like you yourself said, but I think I understand why some people always pit these two against each other.
