Worth reading

No real theme, just people being interesting:

  • [personal profile] jack posted something really thinky about formal logic and common sense.

  • [personal profile] sovay posted a really interesting review of a 1944 film, There are a lot worse things in this world than losing one's beauty. The film involves a Jewish character losing his sight as a result of being tortured by the Nazis, and [personal profile] sovay discusses how awful it is that this is mostly portrayed as back story and support for the non-Jewish, non-disabled heroine's emotional arc. But at the same time it's a really interesting analysis of a film which directly references the Nazi genocide in 1944, while it was still ongoing. Some really interesting discussion in the comments on LJ side about very early media portrayals of the Holocaust.

  • [personal profile] rachelmanija is posting a lot of really fascinating Hamilton meta lately. In the comments to one of her recent posts, [personal profile] brainwane linked to this really thoughtful, profound analysis of Iago in Shakespeare's Othello by Max Gladstone: What the f*ck, Iago?
