    err, ploy? i'm not following you either. i don't really love AHX but i hardly believe it to be the figurehead of a vast conspiracy, the nature of which you claim to understand but won't impart to the rest of us.

    I've found out from past experience that when I do come right out and say it all in plain english my only reward is hostility, scorn and an utter disregard for anything I might further say on any subject.
    So fuck it, I've already said more than I should've. It really is pointless to think such enormous odds can be overcome. Especially when the vast majority can't even discern the blatantly obvious that is right before them on a daily basis. This is the last I shall speak on this subject.

    Oh Darth Kur, I know exactly what you have in mind: paranoid, anti-semitic conspiracy theories. No really, please enlighten us good man. I mean, none of us could have possibly agreed with the underlying theme of American History X without selling our souls to the ZOG machine, right?

    Yeah, I liked that movie's theme regardless of the the suspension of reality required to accept its plotline. The point remains true, as Demiurge so succinctly provided above.

    that film was the best i've seen in a long time and is about the only one I would have recommended if it wasn't done so already- though admittedly i do not watch films so often (this is because there are mostly crappy films or bad screen adaptations of a book).

    I liked "Six Degrees of Separation," not really heavy philosophy, but more like social commentary

    No one here mentioned Brazil from Terry Gilliam (also check out Monty Pythons, they may look like a bunch of morons, but they know very well what they ridicule), Cronenbergs shit is also really good (Existenz for example), I like most of Finchers, Kurosawas (Dreams of Akira Kurosawa, thats the shit), Lynchs, Kieslowskis, Tarkowskis films. The first part of Matrix was ok too.
