Reading through some old Prospects, I stumbled across a wonderful review of Zack Synder’s delirious film “300″ by the critic Mark Cousins (this may be him. Er no, I’m leaving that link in cos the guy sounds interesting, but I think THIS is the Mark Cousins I mean.) He uses an entirely apt phrase for this film- “gay Rumsfeldian surrealism.”
Which, after I wiped the tears of laughter and recognition from my eyes, set me to thinking of other adjective adjective noun forumlations.
There’s Voltaire on the Holy Roman Empire – “This agglomeration which was called and which still calls itself the Holy Roman Empire was neither holy, nor Roman, nor an empire.”
wait for it….
“Pompous Rock Esperanto.”
Genius. I wonder if he practiced that one in the mirror beforehand, a la Travis Bickle?
