“Maybe Lisa’s right about America being the land of opportunity, and maybe Adil’s got a point about the machinery of capitalism being oiled with the blood of the workers.”

The Coens and the Machinery of Capitalism – awesome post!

words and pictures

My last post discussed the two theories that are the framework of this blog: bio-power and cultural capital. An understanding of these two concepts will help, and possibly serve as a great tool, to ground you in this and future posts. Now, with that out of the way, I am going to discuss the Coen Brothers’ Raising Arizona. This film helps demonstrate the issue of capital, and why the solution is not as easy as equality, which may sound like an inhuman thesis right now, but just you wait. Also, just to note, I have previously wrote about this film for a participation journal in the same class that this blog is for, and while I will be discussing many of the same things, I will also be expanding on those points, as well as exploring other areas to solidify my argument.
