We Have a Pope Reviewed by Selma Duckler

Monday, May 28th, 2012

This Italian movie (English subtitles), billed as a comedy opens with a funeral. Actually it is the real footage of the funeral of the real Pope John Paul. It is very impressive and I believe this scene is the key to the movie that follows. We watch the procession of the chanting 108 Cardinals. Soon we are given closeups of the serious demeanor of their faces. Some of these faces, have their name and home country printed to show us the authenticity of what we are viewing and even though we may not realize it, we have actually moved smoothly into the fictitious tale that is the film we are going to see. This quality of the genuine persists throughout the movie. We feel honored that we are invited into the Apostolic Palace, but actually we are seeing a very faithful replica that has been built for our seduction to believe this is real. In fact one of the pleasures of this movie is that it takes us into a place that is shielded from public eyes, (more…)

Transgendered children, optimism, depression and analysis from Sasha Rolde on IP.net

Saturday, May 26th, 2012

Dear Colleagues,

On the eve of a long weekend, I wanted to give you the opportunity to receive the contents of the international psychoanalytic website earlier, so that you would have time to read the posts with more leisure.

The variety of posts at least in my opinion is tied loosely together by a lighter than usual tone – perhaps to lift our mood out of the doldrums of the world’s environmental, financial and political turmoil. Of course that does not preclude some serious business -as in the Announcements which include advance notice of what to expect at the APsaA Chicago meetings.

The posts I want to point out are:

1) the numerous entries in the Art Category – to make you smile. (more…)
