Blue Lives Matter: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, November 2015 Edition, Vol 10-4


     Consider for a moment the sad state of societal disorder in which divisive intolerance has become a favored substitution for erudite enlightenment and a ludicrous authoritarian-targeted  prejudice induces historical correction through the use of criminal misguidance; where diversity is an insidious new form of ethnic segregation with its enforced emphasis on cultural difference rather than human commonality, and forced political correctness (especially on college campuses where weak minds are a terrible financial waste) is a totalitarian means thought control with its hysterical calling for a cessation of all but the most invidious rhetoric as a foundation of political philosophy rather than free exchange of Socratic discourse: the kind of atmosphere which cannot fail but conjure an ill-advised trek down the Cahulawassee and being subjected to the hillbilly soapbox orthodoxy of the Hillabernie totems while being forced to assume the porcine position.  Certainly the professional retainers of our national Constitutional guarantees should be more enlightened than the troglodytic grunts of a certain Hollywood director whose unabated dishonoring of the concept of fact v. fiction (assuming he might ever be cognizant of a difference) can be partially blamed upon the unrelenting aggrandizement of an unjustifiably exalted mediocre artistic sensibility by a shameless, easily impressed new critical corps whose standards seem to be set primarily in a self-congratulatory ability to recall the sources of the director’s unceasing plagiarisms.  And what does this all mean? What all that means is that it’s time, once again, for America’s favorite legal mental narcotic: the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you, once again, by those who enjoy SKITTLES, America’s favorite addictive (but legal) breakfast candy. In this month’s edition we feature eighteen photographic representations of those bastions of law and order: the police as depicted in the cinema. Your task is to ferret out the title of each of the eighteen films and report your findings (here would be helpful). The first to successfully do so will be the proud recipient of the brief and mercifully unchatty CSR Culture Shock Award, suitable for use in repelling denizens of the Underworld or residents of Vermont (different practitioners in terms of styles of ungracious social intercourse but equally unpleasant). Good luck.

About chandlerswainreviews

I've been a puppet, a pirate, a pauper, a poet, a pawn and a king, not necessarily in that order. My first major movie memory was being at the drive-in at about 1 1/2 yrs. old seeing "Sayonara" so I suppose an interest in film was inevitable. (For those scoring at home- good for you- I wasn't driving that evening, so no need to alert authorities.)Writer, critic and confessed spoiler of women, as I have a tendency to forget to put them back in the refrigerator. My apologies.
