MARX, THE MOVIE

Posted October 24, 2008

For weeks, McCain has labeled Obama a socialist, and recently Bill O’Reilly derided him a “Communist” on “The View.” One would think that’s a bad thing. But as Greenzine Daily recently pointed out, Marxism could be the next black. For one, the London Times reports on all the new people, like French president Nicolas Sarkozy, being caught with that heavy tome. But even more significantly, Marx’s masterpiece’ Das Kapital is coming on as a film. Well, actually, according to Greenzine, “that film has already been made, has screened in Vienna and will be out on DVD next month.” To be honest, Alexander Kluge’s new project isn't exactly an adaptation, but it will no doubt be a knee slapper.
