Goran Stankovic – A Serbian Village

“A Serbian village on the slopes of Stara Planina live 15 households. The youngest man in the village is 70 years old. The film gathers the intimate thoughts of the inhabitants of this village, whose wait for death is marked not by loneliness but by a common bond. The reduced nature of their daily life speaks not of poverty but of a spiritual wealth. Though without heirs or much of a future, they are not crushed by their solitude, but thankful for the life given to them. By observing their life, which is focused on the details of daily tasks, through deliberate movement and silent gestures, we discover people in harmony with the cycles of nature. In presenting their most intimate reflections on isolation, wilderness, life, love, this film is a testament of their preparations for their journey.”

Ageism

thongs

Young people have always owned their era and have always been ignorant of the fact that whatever style they are pursuing now, has done the rounds before.

As in this case, where this child’s mother was probably wearing thongs since before she was born….and in reality, it’s none of her business what her mother is wearing under (or over, for that matter) her clothes.

Really?

This sort of shit pisses me off.

I’m assuming that we’re supposed to look at Jamie Lee Curtis and marvel at how badly she’s aged compared to Christie Brinkley.

Frankly, I think that Jamie looks fabulous.

She is aging naturally, and is clearly not as high maintenance as Christie.

I suppose women are supposed to look like they are in their 30’s until they die…but, men are allowed to age.

This is just horseshit.

Pure and simple.

(PS: Jamie Lee is 54, and Christie is 58, btw)
