Magic in the Moonlight

With Magic in the Moonlight, degenerate Jewry’s auteur laureate Allan Konigsberg (alias Woody Allen) returns to his beloved Jazz Age and to the theme of the enchantment in life and love that began to preoccupy him sometime around A Midsummer Night’s Sex Comedy (1982) – as well as to the contested existence of God, a subject that has obsessed him throughout his career. Colin Firth plays a celebrity illusionist invited to debunk spiritualist Emma Stone. The results, pleasantly enough, are quintessential Woody – witty, romantic, and generally wonderful. Blu-ray was invented to showcase Emma Stone’s immaculate, strange, and exquisite face. Highly recommended.

[WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILERS]

5 stars. Ideological Content Analysis indicates that Magic in the Moonlight is:

6. Anti-family. Stone’s father abandoned her.

5. Class-conscious. “Unlike you, we’re members of the working class.” Emma Stone’s character comes from a much humbler background than those who patronize her services as a spiritualist.

4. Racist! Firth refers to Stone’s “confused black little criminal’s heart”. Konigsberg is hereby sentenced to make amends by appearing in Tyler Perry’s next Madea vehicle.

3. Anti-Semitic! “Hoodwinking is what we do,” confesses the hero’s trusted Jewish magician colleague Burkan (Simon McBurney), who presents himself as an exposer of hoaxes but turns out to have been a conman himself and a traitor to his friend. He is motivated, he concedes, by “envy and resentment”.

2. Redpilled. Stone rejects fawning, ukulele-strumming beta male suitor Hamish Linklater in favor of masculine, dignified Colin Firth.

1. Agnostic. “I think Mr. Nietzsche has disposed of the God matter rather convincingly.” Or has he? Maintained throughout is a tension between protagonist Firth’s rational understanding that spirituality is a fraud “from the séance table to the Vatican and beyond” and his simultaneous longing for some transcendence. Is it true that “happiness is not the natural human condition”? Is willful ignorance really bliss? “You were much happier when you let some lies into your life, Stanley,” Konigsberg seems to want to suggest with Magic in the Moonlight.

I’m impressed with Andrew Garfield, who has exactly the geeky charm and wiry physique I remember Spidey having in the Marvel comic books.  The action sequences in this franchise reboot are adequate, but the Lizard, though played capably in human form by Rhys Ifans, is never quite convincing in full computerized mutation.  For the most part, though, The Amazing Spider-Man is as fun and exciting as might be hoped.  The casting of Martin Sheen and Sally Field as Uncle Ben and Aunt May is inspired, and a 2012 Miniskirt Queen of Aryan Purity Award goes to Emma Stone as irresistibly cute love interest Gwen Stacy.  Denis Leary, meanwhile, seems to have made a graceful transition to playing grumpy, older authority figures.  4 of 5 stars.

The Amazing Spider-Man is mostly politics-free fun.  Ideological Content Analysis, however, indicates that this film is:

7. Multiculturalist.  A diverse team of crane operators helps Spidey at the end.  Also, we learn that his famous mask was in fact inspired by a Mexican luchador’s.

6. Antiwar.  An executive at the unscrupulous Oscorp, which is an arms manufacturer in addition to its medical interests, intends to utilize a veterans’ hospital’s patients as guinea pigs for limb regeneration experiments – a reminder of the many mutilated bodies coming back from Afghanistan and Iraq.

5. Persistent in perpetuating the idea that angry white males pose a terrorist threat.

4. Anti-gun.  Guns, even when employed responsibly by police (which is not usually the case in this film), are ineffective.  One innocent character dies from a gunshot.

3. Genetic research-ambivalent.

2. Pro-vigilante/anti-police.

1. Leftist.  Uncle Ben, explaining to Peter his absent father’s moral philosophy, sums it up as, “Not choice – responsibility,” which captures the liberal mentality in a nutshell.

This has been a public service announcement of the Committee for Raising Emma Stone to a Pedestal for a Better View.
