First of all, our introduction to Wonka is this foreboding industrial wasteland.

Like, is this from the movie or is it real life? Because they are similarly terrifying.

Then some guy WITH A CART FULL OF MACHETES warns Charlie to stay away, because “nobody ever comes out.”

HOW IS A CART FULL OF MACHETES NOT A RED FLAG, CHARLIE?

But he doesn’t listen and ends up almost getting mobbed when he finds his golden ticket.

Possible trampling hazard – how fun!

Then, on his way home, he’s jumped by Wonka’s creepy henchman.

This guy really needs to work on his people skills.

And let’s not even get started on Wonka himself. He’s like your eccentric neighbor who may or may not be hatching a kidnapping plot.

Stay away from strangers, kids.

Soon enough, it’s time for the factory itself, a hellscape with disembodied hands for coat hangers.

Wonka then decides to trap everyone in a tiny shrinking room, because why not?

At this point, it wouldn’t be surprising if the walls started closing in and crushed everyone to death.

Now we learn that Wonka exploits the slave labor of little people who he has dyed a horrendous shade of burnt orange.

What’s worse is that his excuse is that the Oompa Loompas were LITERALLY BEING EATEN in their home country.

Can you say Stockholm Syndrome?

Then Augustus Gloop is almost drowned in the river and crushed by this suction tube.

And all the while Wonka’s just like, “lol whatev” even though a young child might end up in the fudge boiler being boiled to death.

And I think this is a deleted scene of Wonka dealing with Mama Gloop?

No, you say? You sure?

After, Wonka takes everyone on a boat ride as if nothing bad has happened, except by boat ride I mean terrifying acid trip.

Complete with humongous bugs crawling across your face and a chicken getting its head chopped off.

In the next room, Wonka blows Violet up until she is ON THE VERGE OF EXPLODING.

Stop killing children, Wonka!

Speaking of violent deaths, Wonka almost slices Charlie and Grandpa Joe into tiny pieces.

That fan is basically a set of giant rotating knives.

Cool, now Veruca falls down a gigantic garbage chute heading to THE FURNACE WHERE SHE WILL BURN.

And then her dad jumps in after her because apparently two humans sizzled to a crisp are better than one.

Moving on, we have these little flittering things that are actually A KID BEING ESSENTIALLY SHREDDED APART.

Him coming back in miniature form doesn’t excuse the fact that you just dismembered a child, Wonka.

Wonka’s solution? Use a taffy pulling machine to stretch him back to normal size.

Paramount Pictures

“Taffy pulling machine” = medieval stretching torture device. The movie has turned into actual child torture.

We end with the intense tirade of a maniacal candy-maker who just sanctioned the imminent deaths of four other children.

“You lose…your life!” – original script.

But it’s OK because now Charlie gets the factory, right?

Wrong. Wonka still decides to take him into an elevator even though he doesn’t know where it goes and admits the glass shattering could kill them.

So now they’re just flying in an elevator that’s attached to nothing and could fall at any time.

And that’s how the movie ends.

The synopsis? “A crazed recluse invites five unsuspecting children into his funhouse lair and forces them to evade various torture devices if they hope to live and claim the ultimate prize.”

Hmm, I wonder what that sounds like?

And that is why NO child should ever be allowed to watch Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory ever again.

Hotel Gramsci

Link al post originale: http://unpopperuno.com/2015/04/24/hotel-gramsci/

Schermata 2015-04-26 a 17.13.12Suonano alla porta, accosto l’occhio allo spioncino. Non aspetto nessuno, quindi si tratta di individuare la tipologia di seccatore. Le varianti principali sono due:

1) Studente trasandato, ma non per vezzo come quelli del DAMS, piuttosto uno che pare sbucato dall’Università di Pietroburgo del 1870, con una barba che all’inesperto può far pensare a un hipster ma in realtà è quella di un narodnik russo che prepara un attentato allo zar: facile, è un venditore porta a porta del giornale “Lotta Comunista”;

2) Bellimbusto in camicia bianca e denti bianchi, generalmente abbronzato, il nodo della cravatta un po’ allentato e una cartellina sotto il braccio: facile anche questa, vuole rifilarmi un contratto di telefonia o al limite è un promotore finanziario. In entrambi i casi, sprangare la porta e simulare uno stretto accento di Manila per annunciare che il signore, poverino, è morto. Immaginate però di guardare un giorno dallo spioncino e trovarvi davanti un giovanotto in camicia bianca con un sorriso tutto denti e… una mazzetta di “Lotta Comunista” sotto il braccio. Straniante, vero? Se ci riuscite, avete l’essenziale per capire Diego Fusaro.

Questo giovane filosofo ha stravolto le regole del mio “Indovina chi”. La prima volta che l’ho visto, in un talk show, mi sono sentito come Hegel a Jena quando vide Napoleone a cavallo: ecco, mi sono detto, oggi mi è apparso lo spirito del tempo berlusconiano-renziano! Poi però diceva cose come “lotta delle classi subalterne contro il capitale”, e di colpo mi ritrovavo nel 1917. Che pensare? Il conflitto tra l’apparenza e la sostanza di Fusaro, o diciamo pure tra la sua struttura e la sua sovrastruttura, è filosoficamente inebriante. Può un promotore finanziario vendere Marx porta a porta? Nel dubbio ho guardato dallo spioncino il suo nuovo libro, Antonio Gramsci (Feltrinelli), solo le prime righe: «Nel 2014 si è diffusa la notizia che, in piazza Carlo Emanuele, a Torino, sulle ceneri della casa in cui Antonio Gramsci abitò dal 1919 al 1921, fondando “L’Ordine nuovo” e gettando le basi del futuro Partito comunista, sarebbe dovuto sorgere un albergo di lusso. Dotato di ogni comfort, ostentatamente sfarzoso, dislocato su cinque piani, il nuovo albergo si sarebbe chiamato “Hotel Gramsci”». Lui ci vede un segno dei tempi, l’asservimento della sinistra al capitale, roba forte. Io però mi fido più della sovrastruttura, e se mai dovessi entrare all’Hotel Gramsci immagino che al banco della reception, con un sorriso smagliante, troverò Diego Fusaro.
