The Holiday Makers

The Holiday Makers


In mid-twentieth-century America, mass tourism became emblematic of the expanding horizons associated with an affluent, industrial society. Nowhere was the image of leisurely travel more visible than in the parade of glossy articles and advertisements that beckoned readers from the pages of popular magazines. In Richard K. Popp’s The Holiday Makers, the magazine industry serves as a window into postwar media and consumer society, showing how the dynamics of market research and commercial print culture helped shape ideas about place, mobility, and leisure. Magazine publishers saw travel content as a way to connect audiences to a booming ad sector, while middlebrow editors believed sightseeing travel was a means of fostering a classless society at home and harmony abroad. Expanding transportation networks and free time lay at the heart of this idealized vision. Holiday magazine heralded nothing less than the dawn of a new era, calling it “the age of Mobile Man – Man gifted, for the first time in history, with leisure and the means to enjoy distance on a global scale.” For their part, advertisers understood that selling tourism meant turning “dreams into action,” as ad executive David Ogilvy put it. Doing so involved everything from countering ugly stereotypes to tapping into desires for “authentic” places and self-actualization. Though tourism was publicly touted in egalitarian terms, publishers and advertisers privately came to see it as an easy way to segment the elite free spenders from the penny-pinching masses. Just as importantly, marketers identified correlations between an interest in travel and other consumer behavior. Ultimately, Popp contends, the selling of tourism in postwar America played an early, integral role in the shift toward lifestyle marketing, an experiential service economy, and contributed to escalating levels of social inequality.

The Cinema Makers: Public Life and the Exhibition of Difference in South-Eastern and Central Europe Since the 1960s

The Cinema Makers: Public Life and the Exhibition of Difference in South-Eastern and Central Europe Since the 1960s


The Cinema Makers” investigates how cinema spectators in southeastern and central European cities became cinema makers through such practices as squatting in existing cinema spaces, organizing cinema “events,” writing about film, and making films themselves. Drawing on a corpus of interviews with cinema activists in Germany, Austria, and the former Yugoslavia, Anna Schober compares the activities and artistic productions they staged in cities such as Vienna, Cologne, Munich, Berlin, Hamburg, Ljubljana, Belgrade, Novi Sad, Subotica, Zagreb, and Sarajevo. The resulting study illuminates the differences and similarities in the development of political culture-and cinema’s role in that development-in European countries with pluralist-democratic, one-party socialist, and post-socialist traditions.

The Makers of Noah Straddled the Fence

Noah is a movie made for controversy. Unless it provides a visual story that is a literal translation of the scripture it will not satisfy the purists. If it is a total retelling of the Bible story it will alienate those just looking for a good entertaining adventure. So what did the makers of the movie Noah do? They straddled the fence and as a result don’t really satisfy anyone.

All of the basics are there in the plot. Noah (Russell Crowe) is a descendant of Seth, the good son of Adam and Eve. The people surrounding him are persons descending from Cain, the son who killed his brother Abel. God, the Creator, has determined that all of the people of the earth are evil and wicked and He will destroy them. He tells Noah He will flood the earth and in order to be saved Noah must build an ark and load up two of all the animals, birds, etc. All of this is done and Noah and his family members survive while everyone else is washed away by the flood.

But to these basic plot points are added an adopted daughter Ila (Emma Watson) who is unable to have children because of a childhood wound. She becomes Shem’s (Douglas Booth) wife. This makes Ham (Logan Lerman) feel left out. He wants a wife of his own. This causes a rift between him and his father. There is also a stowaway on the ark that has been added for dramatic effect.

Worst of all, Director Darren Aranofsky and his co-writer on the script Ari Handel, invent a group of rock monsters who are fallen angels who displeased God. They meet up with Noah and become his protectors. They battle off the bad guys while Noah gets everybody into the ark. The look and actions of these creatures take the film into sci-fi territory and damage the presentation of the story.

The acting in the film is acceptable with no one actor being outstanding. Each plays the role assigned and does it with competence. The special effects in the movie are good but not spectacular.

The film is rated PG-13 for profanity and violence.

Noah has been highly anticipated, but it arrives with controversy surrounding it as many have voiced opinions as to its content and purpose. Many of those making remarks had not even seen the film when they made their comments. Now that there have been comments from some who have actually viewed the finished film the reaction seems to be mixed. This is to be expected as the moviemakers did straddle the fence.

I scored Noah a flooded 5 out of 10.

An Open Letter To The Makers Of The Wolf Of Wall Street, And The Wolf Himself

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, dear Kings of Hollywood, but you have been conned.

Let me introduce myself. My name is Christina McDowell, formerly Christina Prousalis. I am the daughter of Tom Prousalis, a man the Washington Post described as “just some guy on trial for penny-stock fraud.” (I had to change my name after my father stole my identity and then threatened to steal it again, but I’ll get to that part later.) I was eighteen and a freshman in college when my father and his attorneys forced me to attend his trial at New York City’s federal courthouse so that he “looked good” for the jury — the consummate family man.
