Richard Mervyn Hare, ethics at heart

Said law or guillotine de Hume does not cut heads: only undue conclusions or inferences. Those who move from “what is” to “what must be”, from what describes a fact (Paul is a doctor) in what is an imperative or a prescription (Anna must close the window). This “cut” is not so simple. May Paul […]

I have rabies – Release

Grandstand. I’m angry and angry when they scroll through the media, show their discontent on television, make their voices heard perfectly on the radio, deliver their speech in the newspapers. Always to tell us about a situation of which they are an aggravating factor, always to perish on citizenship, on the risk of recession, on […]

Dany Laferrière’s exile to treasures

In the center of the cover of Exile is worth the trip sits a very colorful snail whose spiral is reminiscent of that of the belly of Ubu King of Jarry. The author does not take himself seriously and likes the ironic link between the gastropod and the trip. The following pages are colorful, full […]

November 9, 1989 falls in Berlin the “wall of shame”. A month later, on the stage of the Wuppertal theater, the new creation of the German choreographer Pina Bausch opens with the collapse, with a great crash, of a wall of rubble stones, on the rubble of which the dancers will run in high heels […]

Robert Bresson, crossed clashes – Culture / Next

“The important thing in my models is not what they show me but what they hide from me, and especially what they do not suspect they are in them.” Extracts from his Notes on the cinematograph, these words by Robert Bresson form a manifesto of the ineffable, a truth which is revealed only in self-esteem, […]

At the Berlinale, pearls of plenty

Now that the prize list has fallen, the time has come for a final review of this successful 70e Berlinale, to evoke a few films that have been able to float in the memory of the festival critic exhausted by an overflow of images, German coffee and stuffy pretzels. Mental space Siberia of Abel Ferrara. […]

“The Wild State”, attention seceded

The Wild State is so polished that its title can only be understood as a denial. Here is an illustrious example of fully civilized cinema, whose narration and style are based and play only on fear, the will to control and of course the fascination with everything he is delighted to call the name of […]

“With bare hands”, Amandine Dhée in search of the senses

We hold first With bare hands for a simple but festive expression of desire, pleasure, feminine but not only; the whole is soon coupled with a sincere offering, that of an individual endowed with stupidity and conscience, almost heterosexual, who suddenly turns around like a glove, trying to overturn all his intimate dykes to give, […]
