Wine of Summer

Get a taste of the movie by local film maker Maria Matteoli that was partially filmed in Eureka.

    The children of empire have always lavished themselves in travel and life’s frivolities on the backs of those who must go without.

    Every time Romeo takes another booze-drenched hormone tour to Spain he consumes 2,000 pounds of jet fuel needed by future generations to develop sustainable energy and lifestyles…the antithesis of “The Wine of Summer”…constituting the bulk of 99.9% of other contemporary films, media, newspapers, magazines:

    “A world of plenty for the deserving”…the ubiquitous imperial lie that will not die, even as Rome burns.

    What could be a joyful, exciting, and romantic adventure in immediately, intelligently and dramatically altering our stubborn, ignorant consumption-orgy will likely be lost to another grotesque, and violent force of history and nature.

    If not for the location, scenery and nice filming, the dramatic close-ups of all those pretty faces would be just another soap opera.

    Both Wellses were a joy in The Language Archive, as was the entire cast.

    And the trailer for “The Wine of Summer” does have beautiful filming and pretty faces, as Mr. or Ms. Crankypants confesses.

  4. May 1, 2012 at 12:12 pm

    Well, I’m intrigued. It looks lovely and romantic! Now, if I can just convince my husband…

    ‘“The Wine of Summer” does have beautiful filming and pretty faces, as Mr. or Ms. Crankypants confesses.”

    There’s nothing “cranky” about exposing uncomfortable truths.

    In a world of media deceit, the truth is revolutionary. (A revolution feverishly fought by the trite Hollywood themes mimed in this waste of talent).

    The NCJ article said that Maria was involved in the film “Humboldt County”. That film capitalized on our beautiful landscapes too, and it did a “Deliverance” treatment of the people here. I found it very insulting and pointless and could not sit through the entire film. Fast forwarding to the end was bad enough. Stupid pot growers and rednecks, explosions, more explosions, bad acting, non-existent plot.

    I’m not expecting much from this one.

    This movie was not made with my tastes in mind…but that’s okay, so few are anymore. The trailer is beautiful to look at but I found the sound a bit uneven and at several points the music seemed to drown out the dialogue. Of course, that could be attributed to my old-guy ears.

  16. Fate Rediscovered
    May 2, 2012 at 3:32 pm

    Just one fascist on this thread puking the usual anti-May Day party-line?

    It’s a monumental failure of education, family, and society that Americans with so many resources in the New Depression like Ms. Matteoli, have so little imagination to create a romantic movie of young lovers with perfect teeth, pretty faces, and impeccable attire, deluged by the insurmountable realities of another historic imperial tyranny in collapse, working heroically together to build a better world from the ashes.

    I too would offer my congratulations, except that every other movie in the U.S. is the identical, well-heeled, soap opera claptrap framed in affluence.

    My guess is she forgot to consult you, FR, and just made the movie she wanted to make.

    Getting a movie in the can, from scratch, is a pretty monumental achievement.

    Getting a movie in the can from scratch that mimics the same affluent soap opera claptrap that Americans have been spoon-fed for the last 50 years is hardly a “monumental achievement”.

    The handful of high-quality American movies that aren’t framed in affluence are, in fact, monumental achievements.

    There’s a huge gulf between a monumental effort and a “monumental achievement”. (Like the gulf between Mitch’s comments at 12:56: “you go girl” and 4:28: “My guess is she (Matteoli) forgot to consult you”.).

    Another HSU student was also recently honored for his “monumental achievement”… Sponge-Pants Bob.

    With a little capital and the right consultation, those who cater to media’s narrow, self-censored sensibilities, have great opportunities for monetary success in churning out more mindless crap.

    There’s no honor in repressing uncomfortable truths simply because another local kid shows promise in producing the same crap shouted from media’s megaphone 24/7.

    FR,

    I’d be watching for your movie, but you won’t use your name while attacking someone else’s named effort.

    Maybe yours will be a high-quality movie that isn’t framed in affluence. That would be great.

    After you’ve made it, would you kindly come back and tell us whether you then think getting a movie completed without support from a big studio is a monumental achievement or not?

    If you still think it’s not, I’d be more likely to take your opinion seriously.

    “I’d be watching for your movie, but you won’t use your name while attacking someone else’s named effort.”

    haha, it’s just a movie dude. Dude, where’s my car? <—did you see that one? It's one of those areas where you're allowed to be completely shallow. Do you see what's going on in movies post 9/11? Military, police, guns guns guns, POLITICS (alice in wonderland hopes to improve trade relations between china? donnie darko starring in a multimillion dollar feature length commercial for big pharma…directed at the kids! Will smith tells people to thank police officers while chopping the arms off bank robbers…in a comedic way, of course. It goes on and on and on and on and on an on and on and on…..and on and on and on and on and on…

    ….aaaaaaaaaaannnnnnd on and on and on and on and on and on and on.

    …as a genuine movie geek of the first order, please believe me when I tell you what's going on in hollywood right now is no different than the nazi's commercial media blitz on their own people during hitler's reign. It's a cumulative effort. I can't stomach the action genre post 2002 anymore…there really is a difference in attitude and message. It's subtle but obvious when you look at it as a whole. Like trolls on the internet who regurgitate the mantras of the status quo in as many forums as they can to perpetuate and accelerate the acceptance of complete bullshit like "climate change is completely natural" "poor people need walmart" left/right politics, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc…….

    …….etc. etc. etc. etc. etc….and ther ereally is root to it in popular peer social networking and major motion picture "entertainment"…times when people open up their minds to accept rather than reject. If you wanna get deep, there's plenty of study you can lookup and read.

    So…when it comes to movies, trust me…call it like you see it, it's a safe arena to do it in. This movie is going to suck, just like so many other movies absolutely suck. Probably no nudity either, wtf…all these major movies with more and more gestapo ideals but more prudish every year.

    -exactly. And they don’t only cater to it, many of them believe in it. Are actually in awe of it. It substitutes as a religion for them. And being brainwashed as they are by said media/religion it’s as impossible to reason with them as with a religious fundamentalist. To borrow your phrases, “Media’s Narrow, Self-censored Sensibilities” are the Word they believe in, the commandments. “Monetary Success” is the God they worship, the father they give their power over to. “Mindless Crap” is the ideal, the role model, the son followed faithfully. And you can depend on their holy flickering digitized ghost to “regurgitate the mantras of the status quo in as many forums as they can to perpetuate and accelerate the acceptance of complete bullshit”.

    How disappointing to see a normally lucid “Mitch” descend to the depths of distraction in chastising an anonymous poster, on an anonymous post, on an anonymous blog, for accurately critiquing the genre of America’s media wasteland…anonymously.

    There’s no honor in repressing uncomfortable truths simply because another local kid shows promise in producing the same crap shouted from America’s contemporary media megaphone 24/7.

    FYI Mitch, I’m currently authoring: “Sponge Pants Stained in The Summer’s Wine”.

    It’s a film about the heroism of average people against all odds, donating the largest percentages of their meager incomes to charities, volunteering their limited free-time to community service, blogging anonymously in desperate-escape of society’s mass-censorship and the severe retribution at work for dissent, still finding time for love and romance in the waning years of empire when all imperial economies rapidly transfer all available public wealth to the wealthy to delay their inevitable collapse…if only briefly.

    A story capturing the human realities of perseverance and morality amid a timeless tyranny and predation, revealing a fundamental truth about human relationships….the kind that bind and endure from mutual productivity towards a better world.

    I was compelled to select this title to aid in production, distribution, and commercialization opportunities.

  28. Mitch
    May 3, 2012 at 4:08 pm

    FR,

    Awesome! :)

    First, thanks for the compliment — “normally lucid” makes me blush, and may be the nicest thing anyone’s said about me in years.

    But mostly, I just hate to see people smashed when they try to do what they want to do and actually get somewhere at it. I don’t think Matteoli ever claimed to want to make a major statement about truth, or revolution, or the collapse of capitalism. (If that’s what the book was about, I’ve just missed your point entirely.)

    I haven’t seen Wine of Summer, so I have no idea whether it is good or bad, but I’m impressed she’s done it.

    I’d probably rather go see “Sponge Pants Stained in the Summer Wine” if it’s anything like your description, but first you’ve got to really make it. It doesn’t need to be very expensive, but it probably does mean you’d have to get collaboration from a half-dozen or a dozen people.

    You’ve chosen well on the title, I think, but can I propose that you add one or more words like “Sexy,” “Nude,” or “Wild”? For example, if I may be so bold, “Nude Sexypants Stained in Wild Summer’s Wine.” It worked for “Naked Boys Singing.”

    That, plus a three-page treatment, and I bet you’ll be talking with Disney in no time.

    “But mostly, I just hate to see people smashed when they try to do what they want to do and actually get somewhere at it”.

    No need for hyperbole! Movies, like corporations, are not “people”!

    Otherwise, we’d have to bite our anonymous “tongues” once Tim Gill “actually gets somewhere” and “completes what he wants to do”, building his subdivision in Cutten.

    Exactly where did Ms. Matteoli “get”?

    I too would offer my congratulations, except that every other movie in the U.S. is identical to this one….well-heeled, soap opera claptrap framed in affluence.

    “I don’t think Matteoli ever claimed to want to make a major statement about truth, or revolution, or the collapse of capitalism.”

    You think?

    Indeed, it’s simply another mindless, harmful regurgitation of fantasy, status-quo, and the unquestioned world of plenty for the deserving….as illustrated in every mainstream U.S. movie, magazine, newspaper and TV broadcast for generations. A ubiquitous propaganda unlike anything this world has ever seen.

    It’s an accurate critique. I have no idea who Ms. Matteoli is…or Tim Gill, or Sponge Pants Bob.

    Their “work” speaks for itself.

    May 4, 2012 at 6:45 am

    “Movies, like corporations, are not “people”!”

    We regulate subdivisions because of their unavoidable impact on surrounding communities. I suppose you could make the same argument of movies, but do you really want a Committee to decide which movies have harmful impact?

    It just seems to me like more of a subjective personal statement.

    Speaking only for myself, I’ve probably wasted too many electrons on this, so if you have no personal grudge against Ms. Matteoli, but just didn’t like her movie trailer, let’s move on.

    Not that you care Mitch, but you’ve really lost a lot of credibility on this one.

    You’ve resorted to utilizing your nemesis, “Highly Mistaken’s”, only debating tactic: sophistry. Demanding movie censorship “committees” is your lie that I never proposed.

    Once again, it is perfectly legitimate to call-out anyone’s work that does harm.

    That you honestly believe that another movie, framed in the same harmful lie as 99% of all the rest of U.S. media propaganda: “A World of Plenty for the Deserving”, is “not harmful” denies today’s unreported, shocking reality of worldwide environmental collapse, mass-extinctions, climate change, and obscene over-consumption by a nation with 5% of the Earth’s population consuming 25% of the world’s resources.

    How hard is it, really, to imagine future generation’s perplexity; trying to transfer their communities to energy and economic independence knowing that the last of the “cheap” oil was pissed-away by a self-centered psychotic generation who’s media-culture effectively made “happiness” inseparable from unsustainable levels of consumption?

    Dramatic close-ups of more eye-candy with perfect teeth enjoying frivolous 10-day wine and romance-junkets in Spain is indefensible, regardless of the “success” and attention it brings a local gal.

    “Highly Mistaken” is out of his league in every Heraldo thread, stuck in blind, perpetual defense of an imperial economy he cannot concede exists in the U.S. today.

    “…(The imperial economy, marketing and advertizing), is the social revolution of our time, degrading parents to mere intermediaries between their children and the market. It is terrifyingly reminiscent of another appeal to children over the heads of their parents: that of the Nazi Youth movement. It too usurped parental function, although state-centered. What we have done is combine America’s unique Child/product/consumption-centered amalgam into a cemetery of brain-boxes filled with the bones of pecuniary claims.

    However, lest we place too much blame on the merchants of toyland, let us remind ourselves once more that they could not do as they do were ours not a child-centered society, committed to permissiveness, afloat in the tides of impulse release and fun.”

    Hence, an accurate socioeconomic frame for the “impulsive and fun Wine of Summer”…..from Jules Henry’s 1963 classic, “Culture Against Man”.

    “Monumental Achievement”?

    No need to make it painful Mitch….

    Even the author of Jack’s quotation couldn’t have imagined how far the “fun” of Summer’s wine in Spain, (ie, the over-consuming affluence it portrays as “normal”), would crash our economy, the planet, and it’s species.

    I have not seen “The Wine of Summer,” only the trailer.

    However, I am certain that Fate Rediscovered is correct when he or she calls it “a romantic movie of young lovers with perfect teeth, pretty faces, and impeccable attire, deluged by the insurmountable realities of another historic imperial tyranny in collapse, working heroically together to build a better world from the ashes.”

    That is no monumental achievement.

    Again, let me say it clearly: FATE REDISCOVERED IS CORRECT THAT THE WINE OF SUMMER IS NOT A MONUMENTAL ACHIEVEMENT.

    I’d further like to add that I make these corrections entirely of my own free will, and they reflect my sincerely held beliefs. I fully recant my earlier assertions, and will be more careful in the future before claiming anything to be an achievement, monumental or otherwise.

    I was weak, but now I will be strong. Thank you for your assistance, FR.

    Ape Canyon is the only movie worthy of the area. Also Jezebel’s Kiss is a good skinemax style flick with meredith baxter and malcolm mcdowell shot in trinidad in 1989 and released in 1990. Appropriately, the bad guy is a greedy developer who wants to profiteer the coast with construction, the plot thickens from there.

    No Mitch, YOU get the monumental achievement award for taking the time on a blog to combine two of my sentences out of context to create the opposite of my intended meaning.

    Pretty funny contrition Mitch!

    The film’s characters are not “working heroically together to build a better world from the ashes (of empire)”, they are contributing to the continuing, and deadly, illusion of the fun of over-consumption, made clear in the film’s trailer.

    I hereby give up.

    It’s a direct quote from you, with no words inserted and no words taken out.

    The only way in which they are two sentences combined is that I took your first sentence and combined it with your immediately following second sentence. Read for yourself.

    We hope that those who benefit by doing the same-old wrong thing will use the recognitions, resources and wealth they gain to one-day realize their errors and begin some kind of penance. Is that not the least we can hope from benefactors of an imperial economy?

    As you know, Mitch, this was your misquote:

    “A romantic movie of young lovers with perfect teeth, pretty faces, and impeccable attire, deluged by the insurmountable realities of another historic imperial tyranny in collapse, working heroically together to build a better world from the ashes.”

    As you know Mitch, this was the actual quote:

    “…HAVE SO LITTLE IMAGINATION TO CREATE a romantic movie of young lovers with perfect teeth, pretty faces, and impeccable attire, deluged by the insurmountable realities of another historic imperial tyranny in collapse, working heroically together to build a better world from the ashes.”

    In other words, this movie ADDS to the ashes…readily evident from the trailer…the point I made repeatedly, the point you most-reluctantly acknowledged.

    Your significant investment in manipulating others words is intriguing.

    I hope I can be far more gracious should my ego ever cause me similar blindness, error, and manipulation.

    So how did I change your characterization of the movie, FR, as opposed to your characterization of how the movie came to be?

    How is this a misquote?

    However, I am certain that Fate Rediscovered is correct when he or she calls it “a romantic movie of young lovers with perfect teeth, pretty faces, and impeccable attire, deluged by the insurmountable realities of another historic imperial tyranny in collapse, working heroically together to build a better world from the ashes.”

    OK, I think I get it. You’re saying the filmmaker did not create what you’re describing, and you would have liked to see a movie whose topic begins at “deluged by.”

    Sorry, I have had a hard time understanding you throughout, but I do see your point that my quote was backwards. That’s OK, cause I think most people will be happy enough to know that the movie has “young lovers with perfect teeth, pretty faces, and impeccable attire.”

    I doubt you’ll be interested, but your sentence, with or without “have so little imagination to create” is not very good at conveying your thoughts if your complaint is about the topic of the movie. I had no idea what the topic of the movie might be, so I thought you did, and I thought you were telling us.

  54. Mitch
    May 9, 2012 at 10:37 am

    How’s about this:

    “The filmmaker put together a standard movie of young lovers with perfect teeth, pretty faces, and impeccable attire. Unfortunately, they lacked the imagination to put the young lovers in proper revolutionary context.”

    Only trying to help, comrade. :)

    Hard to avert your eyes, eh?

    It’s funny that you brought up my anonymity as an issue in this debate, and that you’ve found a paragraph to improve.

    Despite your improvement, I’ve made the same argument as many ways as I could to convey it to someone I thought would understand it the first time.

    Once again….

    Assuming that this move proceeds much as it is presented in the trailer:

    “Do you honestly believe that another movie, framed in the same harmful lie as 99% of all the rest of U.S. media propaganda: “A World of Plenty for the Deserving”, is “not harmful”, in denying today’s unreported, shocking reality of worldwide environmental collapse, mass-extinctions, climate change, and obscene over-consumption by a nation with 5% of the Earth’s population consuming 25% of the world’s resources?”

    Is the film’s mimic of Hollywood affluence not evident to you in the trailer?
