Lana Del Rey and the Language of the Violent Image

This month has been a slew of sexual assault cases, with Eminem threatening Iggy Azalea and now a mysterious film project starring Lana Del Rey being brutally raped. The project was directed by notoriously nasty Eli Roth and stars both Lana Del Rey and clips of old videos from Marilyn Manson - who was originally accused of directing the film himself! The bizarre video shows these Manson videos mixed a disturbing scene of Roth physically attacking and sexually assaulting Del Rey. Manson's team has since confirmed that Manson wasn't involved and that it was "likely a fan tinkering with his music video scenes." Like anything taken out of context, it is hard to judge the message of Eli Roth's film based on these few clips (which have since been removed from the internet) but based on his previous work, this project will be inching towards the 'Hollywood torture porn' genre as Jessica Hopper of Pitchfork puts it. Lana Del Rey's entire persona is based off of playing on the traditional American idea of women - being glamorous, vulnerable, and meek. Her music and art so clearly ties back to and plays with all of these ideals (If you haven't seen her video for National Anthem, check it out now) so to have her be raped on film - evening if she was acting - is especially disturbing. Roth is just another man portraying the sexual abuse of women through a man's eyes. Why he chose to use a leading symbol of traditional femininity is something I think the entire music community is waiting for. So far, Roth and Del Rey haven't commented on the situation.

Woah....I don't really have words for this. I want to know what it could really mean, but I don't like to judge early....I'll hold my thoughts on this a bit longer, I think....

I Said No to a Religious Friend as She Lay Dying. Was I Right?
Religion is nothing but a crock used by people to fortify themselves against the frightening prospect of death, that chillingly inevitable end of life.  And when death impends, be that at war, in hospital, or on death row, people cling more desperately to that delusion.  Even nonbelievers walk on eggshells when faced with a dying person. We wonder: Is this really a good time to tread on their sensibilities and disabuse them of their crock? Not long ago I found myself in that quandary.  Someone I knew was dying, and I went to her deathbed to pay my respects. She was a woman who respected me as an elder of the Nigerian community in Cleveland.  She was also something of a protégé, having sought my advice repeatedly as she considered the proper advanced-degree path to pursue.  In my days as a scientific educator—when, also, two of my sons were in the university—I had become something of an information resource for my fellow Nigerians on matters like the choice of college to attend and the discipline of study, and especially how to tap into financial assistance programs available to good students and their parents in the U.S.  I chose to visit her when most of her friends and well-wishers would be at work. I was wary of the perplexed reactions of my fellow Nigerians when it became known that I am an atheist.  My friends told me I would come across much better as an agnostic or a pagan than an out-and-out atheist, for Nigerians are often ranked alongside Americans in sheer religiosity—of the pushy and loud sort.  It’s amazing that the very people whom religion has historically oppressed and denigrated the most (i.e. women, Blacks, colonized people) are the ones who cling to it most tenaciously!  The Nigerian media go so far as to estimate that one in three houses in the cities and townships of the Christian south of the country are used nowadays as churches, chapels, temples, tabernacles, or other places of worship.  “Nigerian atheist” is considered an oxymoron. Those who know I was raised a Catholic—and, to boot, an altar boy able to recite the entire Eucharist liturgy in Latin and English—profess themselves baffled by my apostasy.  Read the full article: https://www.fadewblogs.eu.org/2021/11/I-said-no.html

Lana Del Rey for New Tim Burton Movie!
I am such a Tim Burton fangirl, guys. If he makes it, I'll watch it! His trademark kooky-creepy-lovely aesthetic is definitely a big reason, along with the inevitable casting of Helen Bonham Carter and/or Johnny Depp. I'll never get tired of them doing Tim Burton! But I have to say, one of my favorite aspects of Tim Burton movies is the music. Burton is known (as with the casting) for having favorite collaborations, and one of his most perennially successful partnerships is with composer Danny Elfman. I don't know if anyone can harness "magical," "whimsical" and "creepy" quite as beautifully and inventively as he can. I was pretty psyched to hear that he's also doing the soundtrack for Burton's latest movie, "Big Eyes." This one is a little different than his usual, it looks like - it is the true story of artist Margaret Keane and her struggles against her husband, who claimed her works portraying big-eyed girls were his own. What I found a little strange is that the title song is written not by Elfman, it seems - but by Lana Del Rey, who is also performing the song. I like the song, which was just released in a lyric video preview (attached here). I'm not sure, however, that it has quite the impact of some of my favorite Elfman pieces. People are already asking whether it will be big enough for an Oscar nomination. I have to say I'm not completely blown away - but I did enjoy it. What do you think? Do you like the song on its own? Is it worthy to stand beside Elfman's music?
