Tropicalia- Politics and Music

program date: 
Mon, 05/24/2010

 After some excerpts from their music, Radical Musicologist Brad Duncan talks with Bill Resnick about the "Tropicalia" movement in Brazil from the late 60s.  These artists combined traditional Brazilian music with psychedelic pop from Europe and the US and embodies the spirit of youth revolt that was sweeping the world. 

Brazil's right-wing military dictatorship imprisoned and exiled many of the movement's leading lights; nearly all of the exiled musicians continued their art in exile including Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso.

Robin Hood (2010)

Categories:

Today on the Old Mole, Denise Morris and I discussed Robin Hood, starring Russell Crowe and directed by Ridley Scott. We went hoping to see some stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, but this version is more about defending the nation-state and the rule of law. Or something.

A rant, and some reviews of opening films

Categories:

First, a rant.  I’m not sure I could give a coherent definition of a “chick flick” or even identify one if asked.  Sure, there is Sex and the City (will women really buy shoes that cost more than a month’s rent?), and anything starring Hugh Grant, but the term is too nebulous for me.  Just because a movie is about a bunch of girlfriends and their man troubles, does that make it a chick flick?  Does it have to have Abba music?
