Before anyone says it
Yes
Obviously most horror films from the 80s were shit, as with most movies in any decade

However, I do have to say that the 80s seem like the horror decade, the decade that set most of the new trends for horror and introduced the most classics, while, IMO the 2010s were the second best decade for horror, they're still far-outstripped by the 80s, why?

>Forced Entry is a 1973 adult horror film written and directed by Shaun Costello under the pseudonym Helmuth Richler. It stars Harry Reems (credited as Tim Long) as an unnamed and psychotic Vietnam War veteran who sexually assaults and kills women who stop at the filling station where he works as an attendant. Called "one of the most disturbing and unpleasant porn features ever made," the film utilizes actual footage of the war, predominantly in the rape and murder sequences.[1]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forced_Entry_(1973_film)
>Noting the film is "the first film to show a disturbed war vet coming home from Vietnam," Ed Demko calls the film "one of the more important and relevant films to ever come out of that age of pornography. It’s a film that really transcends the time that it was made and might even be more important now than the age it was made. Sure there’s a ton of nasty sexual activity in the film but the subject matter and what the movie is actually saying goes way beyond that."[4]
>In "Forced Entry: Serial Killer Pornography as Patriarchical Paradox", scholar Robert Cettl assesses the film's role as pivotal in the history of American serial killer films and discusses its subversion of American patriarchy "by highlighting a paradox in relation to hegemonic masculinity" and how the director turns pornography "into self-conscious political discourse", arguing the film critiques patriarchical reaction to second-wave feminism (represented by the independently-living female victims) as grounded in war-mongering (rape-murder scenes interspersed with footage from the Vietnam War) and ultimately doomed to self-implosion (the killer's suicide).[5]

I never thought about this but it's kind of true. it's kind of fun to watch bourgeois middle class try to fight for the lives and die trying.
like I had this mentality watching horror before I even gave a fuck about socialism.

Hello everyone. I was just wondering if anyone has any helpful resources for improving your life but from a left wing perspective? I find all the vacuous and trite content of the 'self help' industry where it's basically just con artists pretending to be rich and successful so they can scam other people for the secrets to be rich and successful, and I can't engage with absurd alienated advice about 'being an entrepreneur', 'marketting myself', 'just visualise your BMW until you have it' and so on.

I'm very depressed and I find it hard to do anything. I don't have a job either and I live in my parents place. So any steps forward would be helpful. But for whatever reason I find it really hard to 'just do X' to improve my life. I feel like everything is fucked so what's the point in doing anything. Whilst I might understand that capitalism is a cause for many of the problems in the world including the ones that affect me, it doesn't really help me deal with it or find a way to make my life tolerable. So, is there anything that has helped you?

Limpdick asceticism can genuinely help you maintain some semblance of discipline in an environment that constantly insists on you giving into your impulses and wasting your life away wageslaving and then consuming services. It's obviously not at all the magic pill to making you happy and complacent that shitty grifters make you believe it is, and self-help ideology is constantly used to basically shame people for not being rich, but i think the fair thing to do here is to just scavenge what can be useful to you instead of just decrying it. Self-hatred is just another spook after all

Sounds interesting. I might give it a listen.

Both have been talked about and recommended on /leftypol/ a ton, but:
Moderate Rebels – Good anti-imperialist pod by the Grayzone guys
Cumtown – Funny (Stav is fat, gay and a pedophile)

Does anyone know of any good film podcasts that aren't just people talking about the big, new, English language releases and the same old, 80s, cult b-movies? I want something that has a bit more variety with some foreign films and films from the 60s and earlier.

Anyone else seen this? It's a TV series about a left-wing labour MP in the 1970s basically becoming disillusioned with Labour's potential for socialist transformation. I think it's pretty good

>Beavis and Butt-Head has received a two-season order at the network, which also has plans for spinoffs and specials. Judge will be writing and producing the series along with voicing the titular characters. The revival will tackle Gen Z after the original series dealt with Gen X.

&ltthe Art Deco enthusiast, like the devotee of Expressionism, is by that interest making a statement about the nature of his or her soul. He or she is impatient with surface images, bored with frippery, and drawn by the weird and the outré. Art Deco portrays the human being as one secretly wishes to be: a kind of _Metropolis_ robot[rix] with a dispassionate, cool, and cruel disposition. Art Deco is never warm, cozy, reassuring; it is glacial and impersonal. Those fearful of, dissatisfied with, or contemptuous of human emotions seek in Art Deco a mirror which will show them - and reinforce in them - only the non-human aspects of their souls.

It is bourgeois. But is it any good? That's another question. the better question depends on whether you're looking at it from the viewpoint of hobbyist, or from that of a town planner, in my view.

Do you think cats can pass the mirror test? My cats seem self aware, but aren't interested in mirrors. They also have zero understanding of computer screens, and keep crawling behind speakers looking for the source when you play recorded cat meows, no matter how many times you do it.

I really wish I could communicate enough with animals to explain how technology works sometimes, or how certain things are dangerous to them. It would be more fun if I could teach cats about light switches, or if we could design VR video headsets with games that cats would like to play.
