Numbers: On Sony’s Decision to Pull The Interview

The Interview

The Interview

“Death is nothing to us.” – Lucretius

There was a time
When movies played
Our dreams and crimes
In light and shade.

Who made the movies
Made the world,
From win­or­lose
To boy­meets­girl,

Like Fox and Mayer,
Lang, Renoir,
De Mille, the Warners,
Katz and Garbo.

But now the best
That we can do
Are these two pests,
Pascal and Rudin,

Whose films make naught
But weak reflections,
A hint of rot,
The corpse complexion

Of cave­caught oughts
And ones that spray
The wall with analogue
Fire’s fake flames.

Death, which once
Was nothing to us,
Has now become
Our terminus.

Numbers is a weekly news commentary column in poetical form by Curt Hopkins. “Numbers” is an historic term for poetry, and also alludes to the numbers in programming.
