6 thoughts on “Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ othering

    1. I don’t know why, but the first thing I thought of when I saw them sitting there on stage was Ishtar. I usually enjoy this cartoon, but I condemn anyone and anything that makes me think of Ishtar. Though I don’t mind thinking about Isabelle Adjani…

      Speaking of Adjani, I consider her performance in Possession to be one of the most fearless the world has ever seen. Plus, she was in my favorite interpretation of the Dracula/Nosferatu mythos, which is Werner Herzog’s Nosferatu the Vampyre.

      1. Although Warren Beatty and Dustin Hoffman survived Ishtar, it put the kibosh on the lovely and talented Ms. Elaine May’s directorial career.

      2. There was a film called “Ishtar”?
        Let me guess – accurate archaeology wasn’t high on it’s list of values?

        1. “Entertainment” wasn’t high on Ishtar‘s list of values, either — though it wasn’t quite as ghastly as most initial critical reaction and its dismal box-office returns suggested (something hardly any movie could be).

          1. So … it doesn’t descent into the “so bad it’s good” pantheon of the likes of Ed Wood and Devine?
            Now there’s a cross-over to pitch in a Hollywood elevator. Unless the producers carry tasers and pepper spray these days.
