New World, New Age

Posted by on March 9 at 11:02 AM

J. Hoberman’s analysis of the New World phenomenon—that is, people blowing their wads over how great the Malick movie is—is pretty funny, not least because we’ve had some of that on this very site. (See Grant Cogswell and, to a certain extent, Sean Nelson.)

The embarrassing part, besides the fact that Hoberman quotes local crank N.P. Thompson (Stranger employees, you’re gonna have to proxify that link, cause he’s banned us from his website), is the supposed reason why The New World is doing so well here in Seattle:

Still, the movie has performed most strongly in New York City, as well as the Bay Area and Pacific Northwest—the market one distributor characterized as “New Age Country.”

New Age Country! Seattle movie-goers, are you going to take this kind of abuse? Good job getting the Ramtha-approved What the Bleep Do We Know out of our rabbit hole so quickly, by the way.

I can't believe someone would use the pseudonym Marion Zioncheck. It sounds so stupid.

grant has an elaborate historical rationale for his use of said pseudonym, but i'll let him explain it.

I think I know what it is. It turns out there was a Marion Zioncheck who was a Seattle Congressman in the 30's. According to the Marion A. Zioncheck website, "Marion was born in Kety, Poland in 1900. He was born to Cleman Zioncheck, his father, and Frances Zioncheck. He rose to become what the media termed was the loudest
radical of his time was destined to become a political force in Seattle's policitcal arena of the 1930s." I can see why Grant would want to emulate him.

So...does anyone think Seattle is NOT "New Age Country"? I mean, Seattle's one of the big reasons why 'What the Bleep' became such an embarassing national phenomenon. And how huge was 'Rivers and Tides' here? And what percentage of the Burning Man population do you think comes from the Pacific NW? Go to any coffee shop bulletin board and count the number of yoga/meditation/misc. new age instructional business cards that are tacked up.

Seattle's a place where yuppies think they're hippies, and that equals a glut of annoying-as-hell New Agey-ness.

So is it any good or not? The reviews seemed a bit off, but in a world in which Crash wins "best screenplay" nothing can be trusted. As someone who liked "The Thin Red Line" should I watch it?

What is "What the Bleep Do We Know" anyway? It looks kind of bad, in an embarrasing kind of way.

If you liked the Thin Red Line, I'd bet you'd like it. It's VERY visual, cinematographically very lush and textural (lots of film of water and plant life,) and the score is amazing. The plot unfolds very slowly. I loved it; my husband hated it and asked three times if we could please leave.

damn it, my comment got swallowed. if you liked the thin red line, there's a chance you won't like the new world. it's one thing to aestheticize war; it's another thing to aestheticize myth. in the former, you're working against the grain; in the latter, the beauty risks being swallowed up by (which is another way of saying being incorporated into) the preexisting myth. i think the new world skirts this risk, but only barely.

what the bleep is the worst movie ever. it's new-age pseudoscience disguised as physics.
