My Two Cents on “Marianne and Leonard: Words of Love”

(“Make sure you’re doing the wrong thing”-a quote from the movie that was a professional/ personal greeting directed toward the artist highlighted in this film…which the viewer would be do very well to remember …)

It’s a well-done documentary about one artist’s influence on the people around him and the world of entertainment in general.

There’s also another story stashed within, not so easily seen but with notable connection to the degradation happening within our modern society.
That is, if one can allow him/herself just a shade more flexibility of imagination and forgiveness for the treading around graver suspicions.


From the best of my expressive and clumsy abilities, I’d say it was the story of a prince.
A prince born into, and the spawn of, the same tribe which survives to this day…to lie, manipulate, molest and muddy the lives of all who do not “belong” to their tribe..
-Those of us who barely deserve the common decency of being regarded as “human” .
According to the oft repeated and bold boastings of their hollow and callously lunatic forebears.
Although they have enjoyed themselves immensely. At the expense of our dignity.
Although their lips, mouths and kisses have announced and sworn, over and over, how much we have been loved, respected and cherished..
It’s all been a most nasty and gargantuan sized lie.
Although they’ve been at our tables to dine and have danced at our parties to celebrate our children’s birthdays and other intimate milestones..
For our entire lives. For a long, long time. The world over.


I speak as a child who was forced to arrive into this world, as an unwanted obstacle to the “good times” and “revolutions” of the young adults led astray by this “tribe”.
When they (our parents) were marched and hypnotized towards this global gingerbread house of “liberation”…only to end up eaten alive , ruined and screwed irreversibly.


Yes, I can see another story in this otherwise “charming” tribute of a documentary.
Maybe, others can as well.


For the future where we have to dig ourselves out from this ruin.
When we start salvaging our treasures; to keep them safe against our chests, instead of foolishly and drunkenly handing them over to a united clan of wicked and grinning tricksters.

Tricksters and hucksters allowed far too much freedom to have built the confidences that they have.
If we can only cease this voluntary “blindness” and see them for what they truly are.
And for the time when an even more hard bitten and stronger generation lock eyes with the “princes” and “princesses” who dare continue to try playacting us as fools..
If only to let them know that their transparent and diseased “hustles’ are evident in much too many recorded and documented pieces of evidence (in the art, the movies, the biographies, the books, scripts, songs….ALL of it) for them to continue, without exposing and confirming themselves , not as the “slick” engineers and heroic “bosom buddies”  as we’ve spent a century believing…

But as the most stubborn and ignorant social criminals that this world has ever been forced to live infected by…

The longer they continue…also as the most pathetic and embarrassing ones, on top of it all.


Once again…
