Donald Trump’s Inaugural Poem Is About Defeating a ‘Tyrant’ and Slavery

2 hours ago

Donald Trump may not have A-list performers at his inauguration this Friday, but at least he has a poem –one that many people already hate. According to the Independent, the poem was written by American Joseph Charles McKenzie and pays homage to the president-elect’s Scottish roots, from his mother’s side. It refers to a great hero who comes down from his tower (Trump Tower?) to snatch power from a “tyrant” and save the people from “slavery’s chains.” Does that make President Obama the tyrant in this situation? The poem, of course, is open to interpretation. Also Read: »

‘Staying Vertical’ Review: Alain Guiraudie Explores Writer’s Block in Oddball Fashion

5 hours ago

Coming on the heels of his critically hailed, festival sensation “Stranger by the Lake,” director Alain Guiraudie must have been presented with wealth of offers and opportunities. He must have also been struck by a terrifying case of expectation-induced writer’s block, because that’s pretty much what his follow-up film is about. Though spiked with stone-faced irony, “Staying Vertical” is essentially the essay about the essay about not knowing what to write. “Staying Vertical” has characters, and they have names and dialogue and all that jazz, but they don’t function as characters would in any other film. Instead, »
