Military Review

Cinema is also a weapon.

Today in Russia they say a lot about the fact that we will find a symmetrical response to sanctions against our country in connection with the events in Ukraine. However, you can defend in different ways ...

Well, to begin with, I would like to remember our childhood “golden”, when we, the boys from Proletarskaya Street, ran in her shorts in the summer and were not afraid to leave home for a long time. The milk was natural then, the sausage was sausage, but all of us were then a bit paranoid. We were all afraid of atomic war, and television told us that it could start at any moment, and the press was trying hard. The feeling was that the war was literally beyond the threshold, and this feeling was especially strong in the 1962 year, and why this is so. People were waiting for a bomb on their heads from day to day and ... they drank! Oh, how they drank then, and even the police didn’t prevent them from doing so. After all, everyone knew that we had deployed for “means of defense” then in Cuba and understood how the United States could answer this ...

Therefore, it is not surprising that we, the boys, then constantly played war, and usually after some war film that served us, as it were, the basis of the game. Well, and war films then went almost every day. We played Chapaev, Parkhomenko, Schorsa, “Baltic Sky” - in a word, no matter what the film, then - the game! There was even some foreign film - “Death is called“ Engelhen ”and here we are in it too. And then I somehow watched the movie “We are from Kronstadt”, which I even liked at first, but which made me think about it a lot when we started playing it. There, in the course of the action, the White Guards drown prisoners of the Red Navy in the sea, imposing huge boulders on their necks, and they drown them - these are bastards! - even a young boy, although the main character, of course, is saved. Right according to the scenario, we are the younger ones, they took the older guys into captivity and had to drown them (they even found a suitable cliff for this), and those heroically drowned. But ... where to get stones and ropes? None of this, except for rifles, planed from boards and with bolts from window latches, was not! And here a great idea came to my mind - and then I commanded precisely white, and ordered ... to pin all the red with bayonets! Cheap and efficient!

Cinema is also a weapon.

The game, of course, immediately ended, and we all began to argue - could it be so in life or not! And although I could not convince my comrades, the screen magic turned out to be stronger - I made a note in my mind: there are films that have a great effect on the psyche and excite hatred of the enemy, but which nevertheless show a lie. Because it is unlikely that the same hares would have fumbled with the sailors for so long, and hang fragments of rock on their necks, when they could rather be shot, for example, much faster!

Then, I watched a movie filmed by the GDR cinematographers “The Sons of the Big Dipper” with a colorful figure of Goiko Mitic in the lead role, imbued with pity and love for the Indians, and afterwards I learned that this film passed on to the Indians in the USA caused Dakota with weapons in hand! Among the reasons for the uprising, the FBI agents named the fact of the demonstration of this particular film. The picture was declared a provocation of the special services of the GDR: long-prepared and brilliantly carried out. After the events of 1973, on the reservation, Wounded Knee, South Dakota, Gojko Mitic seemed to have been threatened many times over, forcing him to abandon his further work ... .

But the truth, nevertheless, is undoubted and indisputable - cinema is an important means of influencing society (Lenin talked about this!) And can be an excellent weapon in today's information wars.

Well, for example, today Canada has taken an unfriendly stance towards Russia. But ... can we not shoot a multi-part feature film on the topic of the destruction of Indian children in missionary boarding schools in this country? Back in 1922, the book “National Crime” was written about this. And since 1995, the Crime Investigation Tribunal has been working there in Canadian boarding schools, proving that over a century of terror from 1880 to 1980, more than 50000 Native American children have been killed in them. Tens of thousands more suffered physical and mental traumas. It has been proven that they were raped there, beaten and medical experiments were conducted on them. In general, sheer horror. What happened there - the second Majdanek and Auschwitz! And about this, it would be quite possible to make a multi-part art film, imbued with ideas ... revenge with whites, and not Christian forgiveness at all ... and pass it on to the local population there! In any case, it will not be worse - because people still need to watch something! Well, after that you can start a corresponding campaign in the press - so they say, what is the vaunted Canadian democracy in relation to their own citizens!

France extremely brutally suppressed the performances of the Algerians, whom the masses shot and tortured with electric current - a ready-made idea for the same series and ... let the Algerians watch it. That they will be pleased to see and remember how their grandfathers and fathers suffered! Well, if there are extremists who have decided to avenge the present-day French for it, then there are always unbalanced types everywhere and always!

Americans are unlikely to be shocked by the horrors of the Indian wars, besides we don’t have a second Gojko Mitic. But to film the novel “Grapes of Wrath” - the novel by John Steinbeck, published in 1939, can and should be. The fact that he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in the nomination “For a Fiction Book” and that he is included in many curricula of US schools and colleges speaks about his quality. In 1940, the novel was translated into Russian and in the same 1940, the same film was shot by director John Ford. However, when it was ... In addition, the film's final is significantly different from the final of a literary work - according to the canons of Hollywood cinema, the film ends with a happy ending, while the final of the book remains open.

“It’s impossible with us” is a novel by the American writer Sinclair Lewis, written in 1935 and tells about the seizure of power by the fascists in the USA. It is important that in the year 1936 a novel performance of the same name was written, which has been staged in theaters so far. But the theater is for the elect. And the average American give TV shows. So we’ll make a show for them and let them watch and ... think how close they came to what the novel was written about! Incidentally, production director Kenneth Johnson wrote a script called Storm Warnings back in 1982 for the production of a television mini-series, but its leaders rejected the original version, claiming it was too smart for the average american. To make the script more understandable for them, the American fascists were replaced by alien cannibals. The film was turned into a fantastic action movie and was named “V”. But who is preventing us from making a talented film on the same material, or are we now only enough for kinopusa like "Quotes"?

A movie about biological experiments on Americans who were poisoned with lively gases and infected with syphilis, for which, by the way, on the first of October 2010, Hillary Clinton brought the official apologies to the Americans. Even a study was launched to determine whether any of the victims of these experiments survived and whether they are still infected with syphilis - so what’s wrong with the X-Files television series? By the way, many illegal experiments were conducted on Canadians, because the CIA did not want to take risks and arrange such terrible operations on Americans.

US President Barack Obama also formally apologized for everything that happened during a telephone conversation with Guatemalan President Alvaro Colom and involved the bioethics commission in investigating the incident.

Guatemalan authorities have described these experiments as crimes against humanity and initiated their own investigation. And where there is an investigation, one can always get his materials, especially if we are talking about Guatemala. At one time, again, the Germans from the GDR had already filmed the Green Monster series about the activities of the American campaign “Unite Fruit Company” in Guatemala and what this film is clear from its title. So that could be done and so constantly from the television screen to impose a guilt complex on the inhabitants of those countries that are conducting an unfriendly policy against Russia. There, many people consider themselves Christians, so these seeds will fall on good soil! Well, to ensure that these films can be shown in different ways. For example, through sponsorship, so popular in the same US. “We believe in God and the rest in cash,” the Americans themselves say, and why should we not use it?

Well, especially for Japanese TV viewers, it’s just necessary to remove the game version of the anime film by director Mori Masaki “Barefoot Gene”, which he filmed in 1982 year and was shown in our USSR in 1985 ... And the fact that our Japanese neighbors have become forget who exactly dropped two atomic bombs on their heads at once, and then what followed!

By the way, in 1983, the film “Barefoot Gen” got a prize named after Ofuji Noboro at the festival “Mainichi Film Concours”, so that no one can object to our Russian film adaptation of “good art”. Another thing is that the film contains many naturalistic scenes, in particular, the effect on people of light radiation, death from acute radiation sickness, the death of newborns and young children, the demonstration of breastfeeding in an extreme situation, so that it can hit the nerves very much! And there, you see, and some other organization like Aum Shinrikyo will decide that the right time has come for revenge. But it will be absolutely their own decision in the best traditions of modern Western democracy, although it is “bad” from the point of view of its morality. But we should not be worried about this anymore - after all, our goal is art for the masses!

Success, tells us the theory (and practice) of PR - it is in an integrated approach, well, so let's be actively using it!

      There are already recognized national cinema genres in the world, such as Indian cinema, Chinese martial arts films, French comedies. including American action films .... I think it is time for Russia to become the world leader of such an interesting, not yet fully "promoted" genre, like ALTERNATIVE HISTORY !!! Filmed in a fascinating way (we have many authors writing on this topic) with an unexpected background of certain historical events, with chic and authentic costumes, against the background of the beauties of the Earth and other planets and special effects, these films will be an excellent alternative to films in Hollywood experiencing a scenario crisis.

        The concept of "alternative history" can be interpreted in two ways: "How it could have been ..." and "How it really happened ...", although the general message is clear and effective. Like S. Bodrov: What is the strength in, brother? - Power is in the truth! The author and the orderly for komenty pluses

        Personally, I do not agree (hereinafter purely personal opinion, sound criticism is welcome). An alternative story does not quite match our mentality. There are authors in the genre of alternative history, but for young people, having entered an age, interests usually change. But we have a solid school of film adaptation of classics, as well as historical films. There is someone to learn from, who to envy and imitate.

      I also agree! Only if you are to shoot a movie based on classical works, then you need to CAREFULLY transfer the SPIRIT and THOUGHTS OF THE WRITER! This was precisely the strength of Soviet cinema. And if in our time they are filming the "vision" of a director, such as Mikhalkov, then, excuse me, there will be no sense.

        Thanks for the great post! Mikhalkov has not a vision, but "visions". One letter and how things change. And I mean that it's useless to shoot something that you either don't understand, or you brazenly distort. And it is even worse to fake it, passing it off as a "specially conscious" original, for the momentary conjuncture, that is, to adapt (somewhat different than to adapt).

    and so there are few interesting films - one plastic ram. Now the proposal to politicize and cinema. well, do not politicize, use as a toolkit. Well, you don’t want movies to be taught something. you want to pick a dirty smelly little squirrel and wave it. I don’t think that Steinbeck wrote his novel for this.

    better, IMHO, make films about scientific discoveries. about the desire of man to learn and create. about creating something. it really is better than chewing human suffering endlessly. for doubtful purposes besides.

    By the way, your desire to feed the next batch of terrorists with scary stories is scary. they will not terrorize Americans who you hate, but above all their neighbors in Japan. innocent people will die. there will be children among them. which our showdown with the Americans did not dig at all.

    ps leave the movie alone. Now there are tons of other faster and better media tools.

      It has long been politicized. The United States uses cinema (semantic load) in order to popularize military operations around the world. And they also promote tolerance through the cinema. And their films and our children are watching, and conclusions drawn by the authors of the films draw conclusions.
      Cinema is a weapon, only ideological. You need to adequately respond to enemies. We are trying to do this, with varying success. "22 minutes" is a vivid example of patriotic cinema! But Mikhalkov's "Stalingrad" is an example of how to shoot. hi

        cinema is a business. same as riveting electric kettles. we do not suspect the Pentagon in the special distribution of electric kettles. just like that, no more, no less.
        like teapots, cinema follows the trend. when there was nothing besides kintoatrov and radio - yes, the cinema formed. and now ... the media tool is rich. there is no need to make a film for three years if you can say and show everything now.

        Stalingrad made Bondarchuk ... a plastic movie that I personally could not bear at the time of the battle around the plane.
        22 minutes - a dull, rustic little action movie. straightforward like a rail. according to american canons. :-)
        here we are constantly like that. either trash, or something inexpressibly deep that only the author and his friends can understand.

          Movies are not teapots! Remember the saying: A fairy tale is a lie, but there is a hint in it, a lesson for good fellows! And it depends on the fairy tale which fellows will grow up, are they kind? You should get acquainted with the theory of Antonio Gramsci, it is mentioned by S. Kara-Murza in his book "Manipulation of Consciousness". Television, cinema and even cartoons have long been used as ideological weapons and means of controlling the masses.

            I will not discuss "Manipulation of consciousness". it is the territory of ren-tv and tabloid newspapers. it's popular. on this many people parasitize, and people hawala and asks for supplements.

            but about 22 minutes I’ll say:
            that is, according to your logic, such pass-through, ruminant films are needed. for education. The main thing is patriotism. Well! it's 3.14zdets!
            Films consisting of Hollywood stamps, shot according to Hollywood canons, are absolutely meaningless. films where the main value is patriotism.
            you hate Hollywood for it. that's why you think the people are getting dumb. and instead of wanting something smart and good, you want to turn on the "zombie machine". preferably stronger, so that certainly no one leaves. this is 3.14 place.

            ps about realism I especially liked. to whom how, to whom how.

For example, for a long time it is no secret that many games are developed on the instructions of the Pentagon and are financed by it. so I read somewhere that back in 2002 another zombie game was released where the evil Russia attacks democratic Georgia. Those. a plan for the attack of mattresses on Ossetia began to be developed at least 6 years before the attack.
    Those. movies and games are weapons of slow action aimed at destroying the country. Who is the main player in the games? adolescents and already at this stage in their brain is laid that the country in which they were born and live "bad".

    somehow I had to sit at home with an injury last year, and I watched a movie on the Internet - everything, including TV shows (my hands barely worked with my mouse, what was to be done?). And I saw this: - A bunch of shots on budget money, with good actors (Russian, Ukrainian, Kazakh, etc.) of series and films produced in Ukraine about Bandera heroes in the events before, during and after 1941-45.
    these heroes are heroically fighting monsters, Chekists, killing the unfortunate, poor, but very good, highly educated and extremely cute villagers-Ukrainians: well, there are guts along the wattle fence, cut off heads, raped rural teachers and te te ... such a frame: a hero -Bandera, after a hard fight with the Red enkavedeshnikami, hugs tightly with a true Aryan-SS man who fought with him in an unequal battle with the Reds (that, of course, a tall, broad-shouldered blond with a steel look ...), they say goodbye to the wattle fence (with guts unwound on it ...) and - until new, difficult battles, victory will be ours, even though the enemy is strong! ...
    for those who are interested, look at what Russian actors starred there, and how they then live in Russia, are in alliances and all kinds of associations of actors, in general - as they look into people's eyes, in the light of recent events in Ukraine ...
    the truth is apparently not in vain the actor, the lyceum is a godly occupation not welcomed by Orthodoxy ...

There are different good films to choose from, programs, etc. I like to watch Soviet films. Our modern (thank God, not all, but many), apart from feelings of nausea and disgust, do not cause anything. I do not understand why the authorities have not yet taken up such an important matter as cinema. After all, it is precisely this that educates the masses. In the meantime, our cinema educates consumers, who do not want to work and earn money, want it to "receive" and then spend on strawberries and resorts.

    cinema is an art, however. art for entertainment, like other types - theater, painting, music. when they politicize him, including patriotize him, they replace his main mission - to entertain - with inspire and educate. it causes rejection, they already load us on TV, in the press, at work, and then he went to rest, and they load you again. the success of American mass culture is that it does not load.

    It's a good idea, but who will shoot such a movie? In Russia at the moment there is not a single normal adequate director, unlike Europe, and even more so the United States, 99,99% of the cinema filmed in Russia at the moment is complete (there must be a bad word ), somewhere a frank cut of the dough and the film was shot as they say "leave me alone", the rest is the same cut and Mikhalkovschina, that is, frank g-no. Until a new generation of directors appears, nothing will shine for us.

    Well, if the film is treated like a weapon, then all the oligarchs, bribe takers, corrupt officials and criminals should be put up against the wall, as in China, and here, like all young people, they dream of grandmothers who are not measured and easy money, and the death penalty has been abolished. Of course, a lot of people go to the police, who want to smack the investigator Shevtsova or the cops. Yes, and many also dream of becoming a milkmaid from Khatsapetovka. You probably have not watched our TV shows for a long time ???. One blood, dibilism and complete infantilism. This is how our youth is brought up. And it is noticed correctly. Lenin even said about cinema that "Of all the arts, cinema is the most important for us"

    Cinema is a weapon, in this I agree with the author. But I do not agree that we must awaken some kind of dark forces so that they become our allies.
    A consumer of cinema is a person who comes to the cinema for a couple of dollars to see a beautiful picture and experience some emotions.
    Accordingly, we need a movie like this:
    - Special effects are necessary, a little but should be.
    - A bright positive character, with whom the viewer can relate himself (preferably a resident of Western Europe).
    - The enemy can be either recognizable (Bandera) or veiled (Martian with the Bandera flag).
    - Well, of course, happy end, goodness should be stronger.

    As options for scenarios, I propose the following:
    - landing of Garibaldi
    - landing of Fidel Castro in Cuba
    - French resistance 1940-1945
    - uprising in the Warsaw ghetto 1944

    Well, add it yourself, which plot may still be suitable.

        Many THANKS for this appeal, I really did not expect this in my 39 years. I repeat - THANKS.
        In this case, it does not matter whether his landing in Nice in 1848 was successful or not, the fact is that his name will cause a feeling of patriotism in Italians and a rise in national identity.
        P.S. About Prince Carachiolli and Lieutenant-Captain Bell tell?

    Oh, what a good topic!
    I fully support the author that cinema is a weapon and it must be removed.
    Now TV channels are willingly sponsoring the filming of TV series. We need quality historical series. Yes, they are, but the overwhelming majority are about the events of the 20th century, as if we had no other periods in history. How not to include some newly minted series, there are NKVDs in caps, riding breeches, in the hands of the PPSh, someone is being pressed and the names of these "masterpieces" without much variety: "Stalin", "Son of Stalin", "Grandson of Stalin", wow something new "Beria"!
    We have not a single film about Rurik! Not about Princess Olga, not about Prince Igor, etc. But it would be possible to shoot a series about Rurikovich, which would be spectacular and more interesting than the fabulous "The Lord of the Rings" or "Games of Thrones". Thank God, the Ministry of Culture is also thinking about this, here is last year's interview with the minister, who is too lazy to watch the whole thing, you can listen to it starting from 3.30 min / sec

    Yes, and the image of the Russian nation needs to be rehabilitated, otherwise it was suggested to us that we are hereditary slaves, drunk, and this lousy Europe did not wash in the Middle Ages, when Russians in the baths soared and used hair combs.
    The image of the enemy must also be clearly expressed. Americans are the fattest nation in the world. Fact? Fact! It’s worth a close look at the news, fat trusts are there everywhere, in the police, on the streets, in shops, surrounded by Obama. Must use it!
    We have one significant problem - the scripts. Judging by what they shoot, there are no normal scenarios. Often, screenwriters do not know much about history, but must cooperate with military history clubs and attend reconstruction events.

    The ideological war continues ... the struggle for the minds of people takes on one of the key meanings. With cinema, in Russia it is still very sad ... there is potential and talents ... somehow, the embodiment is not very good yet. There is an order in society for patriotism ... let's see what will be offered by our domestic film industry.

      What do you want if the word Russian 20 years was banned?
      If the Minister of Culture, a Jew, Shvidkoy, organized a series of TV discussions "Russian fascism is more terrible than German"!
      If 20 schools taught for years on upturned history textbooks, and any scientist who made an attempt to present a different point of view fell under the ban (Barsenkov, Vdovin).
      If "Children of Rosenthal" is staged at the Bolshoi Theater, "Bastards" and "4 Days in May" are filmed and actively launched, and almost all of the TV humor spins below the belt.

      My opinion is that until we have organized a cycle of discussions "Shvydkoy is more terrible than Goebbels" cardinal changes are not expected.

    Stalingrad made Bondarchuk ... a plastic movie that I personally could not bear at the time of the battle around the plane. 22 minutes - a dull, rustic little action movie. straightforward like a rail. according to american canons. :-) here we always have it. either trash, or something inexpressibly deep that only the author and his friends can understand.

    I do not understand WHO gives our money, as taxpayers for such films of Bondarchuk Jr. as "9th Company", "Stalingrad", "Ostrov". In my opinion, these films cannot be called anything other than sabotage.
    Mikhalkov - similarly.
    Good actors, cut money like directors, but why dousedly pour your own homeland?

    Unfortunately, modern cinema in our country is shot by Russophobes. There is a certain stratum of "liberal creative intelligentsia" that looks down upon the Russian people and Russian history in a lordly manner, without due respect and understanding.
    You can endlessly talk about "evil Russians in Western cinema", but the juiciest cranberries about Russia are filmed by Russian filmmakers.

    Its plots are enough: you can make a film like Catherine II, helped the formation of the United States by adopting a declaration of armed neutrality dated February 28 - March 10, 1780, about how Russia supported the Northern States of America during the civil war .. How the Russians took Paris in 1814, about Russian round-the-world travels in the 19th century, how the Russians discovered the same Hawaiian Islands .. unfortunately there are no talents now ... in Russian cinema ... so that this and the other can be properly presented ..

    The article is a huge plus, and for example, the Ministry of Culture did not give money for filming "28 Panfilov's men", but the Ministry of Culture didn’t give a lot and talk about patriotism beautifully on TV and gathers people bit by bit for a movie for themselves, as well as for Strelkov in Slavyansk without any help from authorities.

    Cinema, one of the levers of PR management, see how the PR-how the tail controls the dog at leisure. I watched it back in 2005 while studying at the institute, a very entertaining film about the place of the film industry in the propaganda system. But there is one more type of propaganda, these are computer games, whether you played games in the industry for a long time or your children take from the old though BattleField 4 or a series of Call Of Duty MV games. And again, the games are bad Russian and brave Americans, which are better everybody in the world and they put enemies in packs. And such games are going to grab some patriotism then you can talk about it. And in GAVJOP or the same SAS, God forbid, there will be a game where the inhabitants of these regions are the main antagonists of games, so such campaigns are tortured spit out claims. Why doesn’t our government, human rights organizations and game industry publishers prohibit these products, and manufacturers do not initiate lawsuits against the company because of slander and insult to the nation. in a strategy where there is at least a little historical authenticity, or with a science fiction storyline.

    Yes, old Soviet films are beyond competition for me, I have always liked the cycle of films "State Border". I have always liked it, I constantly revise it, they knew how to shoot patriotic films in the Union, not like today's ones, even Bondarchuk Jr., does not match the skill of his father, ADMIRAL USHAKOV, SHIPS STORM THE BASTIONS, THE FATE OF A MAN, well, and the crown of his creativity is WAR and PEACE (The film is a legend, the budget of which has not yet been surpassed, even Cameron with his avatar), these are the masterpieces of world cinema, it is on such films that PATRIOTISM must be brought up! !! soldier

    All this is good, only everything is much simpler. Epic "The Great Patriotic War" filmed by the Americans. I watched some episodes in parts of 5-10 minutes. Just get it out of the storerooms (there is probably a version in English) and send it on the satellite, even several times, maybe they will understand what kind of snake they "raised" in their breasts (they fed them with cookies on the Maidan).
