Politics of Morality, 21 February 2009
Author: gts-14 from United States

On the surface this one was playful and cute like Karina's character but those qualities masked a frighteningly piercing introspection in both the lady and the film. Generously sprinkled with amazing philosophical/existential lines and dialog ("There's a door in front of me, and behind you") it was extremely exhausting but also equally rewarding symbolically: left and right as struggling but complimentary sides of a political yin/yang and perhaps representative of an individual heart's desire to evolve up to a higher social/ethical level of existence. The rolling stones' "as tears go by" hints at the sad but necessary inevitability of this evolution in a sentient heart, and USA "laissez-faire" ethics on one end of the spectrum and nazi fascism on the other both made the metaphorical moral discipline of communism seem pretty attractive to our heroine. Some very cool retro A/V equipment too.
