I'd like to say a word about Michael Lerner in Barton Fink: Absolutely terrific

In reply to an earlier post on May 3, 2012 3:06:55 PM PDT
J. Baker says:
Jeff Donaldson, re: Michael Lerner
(he also has a cameo in 'A Serious Man'!)

Jack Lipnick: "It's supposed to be about big men! In tights! Both physically and mentally!"

"We don't put Wallace Beery in some fruity movie about suffering - I thought we were together on that."

"You didn't let me down Fink, or even Lou. We don't live or die by what you scribble. You let Ben Geisler down. He liked you, trusted you... and that's why he's gone, he's fired.
That man had a heart as big as the all outdoors and you f---ed him."

Zeph,

Welcome to the club, Z. I admit when I saw it at age 7, it didn't mean a whole lot to me then.
But when I re-watched it on video in 1992, I fell in love with it, just as I had 'Miller's Crossing', and later 'Hudsucker', 'Fargo', et cetera.

+ Opening line: "What a marvel...what a marvel."
.....
Larry Gopnik: "I haven't done anything."..."I don't want Santana Abraxas!" ..."I haven't done anything! What did I do?"
......

Let's investigate, through Carl Jung's words, via his "Seven Sermons to the Dead," what Larry wants no part of:

Abraxas is an important figure in Carl Jung's 1916 book "Seven Sermons to the Dead," a representation of the driving force of individuation (synthesis, maturity, oneness), referred with the figures for the driving forces of differentiation (emergence of consciousness and opposites), Helios God-the-Sun, and the Devil.

* Carl Jung's 2nd Sermon: "There is a God about whom you know nothing, because men have forgotten him. We call him by his name: Abraxas. He is less definite than God or Devil.... Abraxas is activity: nothing can resist him but the unreal ... Abraxas stands above the sun [ ~G-d (HaShem)] and above the devil. If the Pleroma were capable of having a being, Abraxas would be its manifestation."

* Carl Jung's Carl Jung's 3rd Sermon: "That which is spoken by God-the-Sun is life; that which is spoken by the Devil is death; Abraxas speaketh that hallowed and accursed word, which is life and death at the same time. Abraxas begetteth truth and lying, good and evil, light and darkness in the same word and in the same act. Wherefore is Abraxas terrible."

●̮̮ And the first sermon could just as well be about whoopsie-doopsie, which is to say: S-E-X.

Moses: "An' when they was no meat we ate fowl. An'when they was no fowl we ate crawdad. An' when they was no crawdad to be foun', we ate San'."
HI: "You ate what?"
Moses: (nodding): "We ate San'."
HI: "You ate sand?!"
Moses: "Dass right . . . ."

& ( I didn't know what all this meant when I was 7 but I knew it was somethin' :

[final lines]

H.I.:

"That night I had a dream. I dreamt I was as light as the ether - a floating spirit visiting things to come. The shades and shadows of the people in my life rassled their way into my slumber. I dreamed that Gale and Evelle had decided to return to prison. Probably that's just as well. I don't mean to sound superior, and they're a swell couple of guys, but maybe they weren't ready yet to come out into the world.
And then I dreamed on, into the future, to a Christmas morn' in the Arizona home where Nathan Junior was opening a present from a kindly couple who preferred to remain unknown.
I saw Glen a few years later, still having no luck getting the cops to listen to his wild tales about me and Ed. Maybe he threw in one Polack joke too many. I don't know.

And still I dreamed on, further into the future than I had ever dreamed before, watching Nathan Junior's progress from afar, taking pride in his accomplishments as if he were our own. Wondering if he ever thought of us and hoping that maybe we'd broadened his horizons a little even if he couldn't remember just how they got broadened. But still I hadn't dreamt nothing about me and Ed until the end. And this was cloudier cause it was years, years away.
But I saw an old couple being visited by their children, and all their grandchildren too. The old couple weren't screwed up. And neither were their kids or their grandkids. And I don't know. You tell me. This whole dream, was it wishful thinking? Was I just fleeing reality like I know I'm liable to do? But me and Ed, we can be good too. And it seemed real.
It seemed like us and it seemed like, well, our home. If not Arizona, then a land not too far away. Where all parents are strong and wise and capable and all children are happy and beloved. I don't know. Maybe it was Utah."
