This post is a spiritual sequel to yesterday’s “Well, That Just Ruined That” and I’m taking the inversion of it to make you appreciate Vladimir Putin that much more now.
Think he’s just some dick Russian leader currently operating the country via a puppet whose name I can’t spell? WRONG! He’s a futuristic cop in New Detroit, dispensing justice via bullets and…more bullets! The whole head of state thing is just an act!
Is Robocop being remade? Yeah, with Darren Aronofsky right? I could actually see it being the tragic tale of a world leader rebuilt as a machine and coming to terms with his inhumanity. Have you seen The Fountain? Pi? That existential shit’s right up Aronofsky’s alley.
