Michael Clayton 05.11.07

Michael Clayton è un diesel.
Parte piano, ma poi stupisce.

Kenner, Bach & Ledeen. Grande studio legale a New York. Una class action milionaria contro la loro assistita U/North, multinazionale di prodotti chimici per l'agricoltura, scatenerà una serie di eventi dall'epilogo imprevedibile.

Clayton aggiusta le cose, è un "faccendiere". Per lui, sul lavoro, tutto può essere sistemato.
Clayton è un uomo che a gettato alle ortiche la sua vità.
Ex pubblico ministero, un divorzio alle spalle. E' sommerso dai debiti. Il gioco d'azzardo e un investimento sbagliato lo hanno rovinato.
Per questi motivi la Kenner, Bach & Ledeen lo tiene legato a filo doppio.

All'improvviso il miglior avvocato dello studio, Arthur Edens, ha un crollo psicologico che lo porta a sabotare l'intera causa U/North minacciando di ribaltarne l'esito.
Toccherà a Clayton il compito di sistemare le cose. Un lavoro che lo metterà di fronte a scelte drammatiche e a confrontarsi con ciò che è diventato.

Superlativa l'interpretazione di Tilda Swinton, che interpreta il capo dell'ufficio legale della U/North.
Un buon film, cinico, fin troppo reale.
Atmosfere cupe, sogni infranti, ma anche voglia di ribellarsi e di rivincita.
Forse non alla portata di tutti, ma merita un tentativo.

La censura in Birmania 20.08.12

In una mossa distensiva e di timida apertura il governo birmano ha annunciato che la censura su tutte le pubblicazioni locali è revocata a partire da oggi.
Le restrizioni erano in vigore dal 1962 quando salì al potere la giunta golpista del generale U Ne Win.

I prossimi passi in Myanmar 02.04.12

Christian Caryl sul successo elettorale di Aung San Suu Kyi e della Lega per la Democraiza e sulla strada ancora da percorre in Myanmar.

It is vitally important to keep the big picture in sight. As Aung San Suu Kyi and her colleagues know all too well, they are about to enter a parliament that has been carefully designed to prevent people like them from gaining much influence. According to the 2008 constitution that provided the ground rules for Burma's last general election two years ago, a full quarter of the seats in parliament are reserved for the armed forces. But an even larger number of seats are held by the Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP), created by the military regime in 1993 as a counterweight to the pro-democracy movement. If Aung San Suu Kyi and her friends really want to amend the present constitution before the next election rolls around in 2015, as they have said they plan to do, they will have to find allies within these two groups.

Aung San Suu Kyi è stata liberata 13.11.10

Aung San Suu Kyi

I am thrilled to see our democracy leader free at last, but the release is not part of any political process, instead it is designed to get positive publicity for the dictatorship after the blatant rigging of elections on November 7.

We must not forget the thousands of other political prisoners still suffering in Burma's jails.

There is no press freedom in Burma and the government has started turning off the Internet and other means of communication, so it is difficult to get news out. Individuals on the ground have been sending their day-by-day reports to the BBC, and they are heartbreaking. I encourage you to read these accounts to see for yourself what is really going on in Burma. Please include this link in your own blog post.

The situation in Burma is increasingly dangerous. Hundreds of thousands of unarmed peaceful protesters, including monks and nuns, are risking their lives to march for democracy against an unpopular but well-armed military dictatorship that will stop at nothing to continue its repressive rule. While the generals in power and their families are literally dripping in gold and diamonds, the people of Burma are impoverished, deprived of basic human rights, cut off from the rest of the world, and increasingly under threat of violence.

This week the people of Burma have risen up collectively in the largest public demonstrations against the ruling Junta in decades. It's an amazing show of bravery, decency, and democracy in action. But although these protests are peaceful, the military rulers are starting to crack down with violence. Already there have been at least several reported deaths, and hundreds of critical injuries from soldiers beating unarmed civilians to the point of death.

The actual fatalities and injuries are probably far worse, but the only news we have is coming from individuals who are sneaking reports past the authorities. Unfortunately it looks like a large-scale blood-bath may ensue - and the victims will be mostly women, children, the elderly and unarmed monks and nuns.

Contrary to what the Burmese, Chinese and Russian governments have stated, this is not merely a local internal political issue, it is an issue of global importance and it affects the global community. As concerned citizens, we cannot allow any government anywhere in the world to use its military to attack and kill peacefully demonstrating, unarmed citizens.

In this modern day and age violence against unarmed civilians is unacceptable and if it is allowed to happen, without serious consequences for the perpetrators, it creates a precedent for it to happen again somewhere else. If we want a more peaceful world, it is up to each of us to make a personal stand on these fundamental issues whenever they arise.

Please join me in calling on the Burmese government to negotiate peacefully with its citizens, and on China to intervene to prevent further violence. And please help to raise awareness of the developing situation in Burma so that hopefully we can avert a large-scale human disaster there.
