Dialectic in the Film “Ladyhawke” -- ‘The Dialectic of Night and Day’.
Pasted-in below is an E.D. ‘dialectogram’ describing ‘The Dialectic of Night and Day’ in general, and the subtle and specific use of that dialectic presented -- advertently or not -- in a classic but little-known American film of 1985, entitled “Ladyhawke”.
Apart from the instructive aspect of this film as an instantiation of breakthrough dialectical thinking in discovering a solution to a terrible conundrum, this movie also ends in a way which I, for one, have seldom seen portrayed in American cinema.
It ends with an ecstatic, sustained, and even communal celebration of the triumph of the fallible, errant, but still ethical human -- of human love, human courage, and human decency -- over the parasitism, sadism, and utter viciousness of self-de-humanized [in]human evil.
This is something that the ‘Rocke-Nazi’ ruling-class ruling-faction hope that you will never, ever know anything about -- and they are flooding the cinema and the television with ‘psychotic drivel’ with a view to enforcing that unknowingness.
