5.0 out of 5 stars A must have!, 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very inspiring book; it shows how one can deal - seriously and passionately - with difficult topics that we make our own. Even if you were not not interested in Jewishness,or Middle East, you will be after having read this book.


Precarious Life: The Power of Mourning and Violence
Precarious Life: The Power of Mourning and Violence
by Judith Butler
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book!, 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent text on a dictum of the value of human life and humanity that we take for granted - as lay persons and social scientists. Not everybody's life is 'grievable', not everybody's experience and memory is worth understanding or remembering.There is so much pretense about humanism in social science, so little self-reflection.

Very nice piano pieces, some of them are a bit melancholic, good for an ambient mood, technique not too difficult.


Milk [DVD] [2008]
Milk [DVD] [2008]
Dvd ~ Sean Penn
Price: £3.90

3.0 out of 5 stars Milk, 27 Mar 2011
This review is from: Milk [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
Thrilling, passionate, witty, funny and, yes, political! Sean Penn is great in it! The film is a brilliant portrayal of a gay community's struggle for acceptance in the 1970s San Francisco. It shows how difficult it is to "undo" the homophobic stereotypes and to pass as equal and "normal" in a society that praises its freedom and right to choose.

4.0 out of 5 stars Skeleton in a closet...?, 27 Mar 2011
An excellent and significant film! It provides an alternative perspective on Israeli collective memory by addressing a moral dilemma: "Can we harm others if we were once harmed? Folman's film raises a question whether and how is it possible for Israel today to reconcile its two conflicting experiences -- the Jewish Holocaust on the one hand and injustices of Israeli state against Palestinians on the other. Ultimately, the film reminds us that any community has its dark past that it should deal with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Head-on, 27 Mar 2011
This review is from: Head On [DVD] (DVD)
An excellent film! It shows how difficult it still is in a free and open society to cross the boundaries of Diaspora and break away from its traditions.
