Photo: Courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis is a bit of a bait and switch. Despite being named after the King, this nearly three-hour musical is primarily told not from the perspective of the titular character (played by Austin Butler) but that of his manager: the oddly accented, smugly delusional Colonel Tom Parker (a very prosthetics-adorned Tom Hanks). It is through Parker’s self-serving narration that we see Elvis Presley’s celebrity explode and then eventually dim as Parker manipulates him into a long-term Las Vegas contract and surrounds him with doctors who keep him medicated and addicted. For as much as Elvis condemns the music-industry machine, though, it also catalogues and celebrates Presley’s myriad talents, interests, and influences.

We’re so accustomed to seeing flags, it’s easy to forget they have deep significance. Who isn’t able to bring to mind the indelible image of the U.S. Marines hoisting the American flag in victory at Iwo Jima. Or American astronauts planting it on the moon ? Or Colin Kaepernick kneeling in protest against the Stars and Stripes and the country for which it stands? Flags are partly why those images are seared into our collective minds. Essentially, flags are symbols that represent values and beliefs. More than that, they represent a claim on both the land and, in many ways, the mind. Flags represent jurisdiction. They say with quiet authority: this symbol, and its attendant beliefs and values, has preeminence here. Flags matter, in other words. We don’t erect them for nothing. Which is why the photo (above), from London’s kickoff of Pride month, has a menacing feeling. To me, it has an imperialist quality to it, like an occupation. All those beautiful rainbow … [Read more...] about The Many Colors Of Imperialism: Where This Flag Flies, Intimidation Reigns | The Daily Wire
