Soraya Chemaly: Some Thoughts on Arial Castro, George Zimmerman and Ending Violence
Huffington Post - over 4 years
So, this happened: Ariel Castro, a man who harvested three girls off of the street to enslave, rape and torture them in his house for 10 years, was sentenced to life in prison plus 1,000 years.  Good riddance.  But, let's be clear, while Castro might seem psychotic and this case enraging and terrifying, there is no shortage of cases with similarly staggering details.  All. Over. The. World.  Every. Single. Solitary. Day.  Not only is this violence against girls and women, because they are girls and women, tragic for the individuals involved, but it is a big, fat, canary in a coal mine. There are WAYYY too many men on earth like Ariel Castro who insist they aren't monsters. Many people pay for these beliefs and our institutions continue to enable them to act on their hateful convictions for with unconscionable confidence and entitlement.  It's a global, systemic failure that makes justice for girls and women an oxymoron and leads to widespread harm to boys and men.  Violen...

Nancy Cohen-koan: Lotus Eaters: Too Much of a Good Thing?
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
I found Alexandra McGuinness's debut film Lotus Eaters disturbing. It is shot so beautifully, in an '80s soft black and white palette, with gorgeous close-ups of perfect young faces, as if torn from a fashion spread. So from the first frame, visual appetite is up, but very quickly dissipated by the backbiting, nastiness of this spoiled group of 20-somethings. They had me yearning for Eliza Doolittle. Who are these kids? Why aren't they looking for jobs? And how can I share some of their lifestyle? Lotus Eaters follows a group of young Londoners as they struggle to find meaning in their lives, by drinking, drugging and partying at beautiful castles. It seems that everyone is connected to old money, so it's hard to feel too sympathetic for their plight. Instead of getting it all done and over with at Easter break in Florida or taking a gap year to Nepal, they run around in costumes, picking on each other and getting high much too long. Perhaps if they were witty, but mostly ...
