American cinema has stopped being memorable for a long while; yet, as it happens with dead stars that once shone greatly, it produces once in a while sparks that keep alive the illusion of its power. Many of the films that were nominated for the Oscars this year were but subproducts created to smooth the way for the social engineering designed by Globalism, according to the formula established by Rousseau: "Correct the opinions of men, and their customs will be purified by themselves."

Therefore, for example, among the nominated pictures we found apologias for homosexuality ("Carol") and transsexualism ("The Danish Girl"); but it is each time rarer to find (outside the cinema strictly made for popcorn accompaniment) films that do not provide, in rude or subtle form, a large ration of globalist swill.

Among the most acclaimed pictures of this year was, for instance, "Spotlight", a film lacking in artistic talent that claims to be an aseptic denunciation of the pedophile practices among the Catholic clergy, through the recreation of a journalistic investigation in the diocese of Boston. The picture has such a "neutral" feel that it has been praised by Zombie Catholicism; however, it is filled with malice, which includes the seraphic portrayal of characters (not a single one of the journalists professes not a single milligram of dislike for the Church!) and argumentative spins that are calculatedly malicious, such as the intervention of an "expert" who assures that one fourth of all priests are always, in statistical fatalism, pedophiles.

Moreover, "Spotlight" does not establish (what a surprise!) any connection between pedophilia and homosexuality, neither does it notice that, in many American dioceses, there were wicked bishops who, in order to form their own clique, systematically rejected every seminarian who showed the slightest sign of virility.
