A Quantum of Anti-Imperialism

  Thanks for posting this.  I'm going to see the movie this week. Have a thing for action films.  This review makes it seem more interesting then just straight mindless fare.  I did stop reading past the first few paragraphs.  Didn't want to spoil it too much.   I'll have to  come back to this after I see the film.

I find it ironic that Bond is a "leftist" or anti-imperialist only in his most brutal incarnation.

Jacob Two-Two

Well, it's a brutal world. Maybe the intensification of violence is part and parcel of a stronger connection to reality.

I find it intresting that most of the left wing statements in the film are made by the villain.
