    For me, 2019 was an above average year. But then, I've fallen into a rhythm where I squeeze a year's worth of movies into ten days and then watching nothing for the rest of the year. Still, those...

    Again, the evidence you cite is insufficient to support the sweeping claims you've made (to repeat: America "needs the Red," and "Red is the color of great and daring art"). Even if we both agree...

    That's too bad, I was rather enjoying this. And now that we at least agree on what the historical evidence is, it seems to me that we're in a better position to understand how it supports, or doesn't...

    So I took a glance at Marek Haltof's Polish Cinema: A History, which can easily be accessed in its entirety from b-ok.org. From what I've skimmed, the focus is mostly on films and filmmakers rather...

    Perhaps it would be useful to look at your original post to better understand your argument, since you've made no effort to clarify it here. Your original post began with the claim, "The Red is what...

    I didn't think you were. I was responding to Purple's bizarre claim that Eastern Bloc countries were throwing wads of cash at filmmakers to use however they wished.

    I don't see how the dialogue in that sequence is less lived in or incidental than, say, the scene of Brad Pitt and Andie MacDowell's daughter talking in car in Once Upon a Time..., which likewise...
