Mister Frost (1990) [Psychological, Occult, Religious]

2021.12.04 13:30 Y3808 Mister Frost (1990) [Psychological, Occult, Religious]

I stumbled across this film purely by accident when I was a kid, it was on premium cable randomly one day. It's from a French studio and was filmed in Paris, although the native audio track is English.
Plot:
A serial killer (Jeff Goldblum) is discovered, accidentally, living alone in a European country house / chateau by police investigating a car theft. No one knows anything of his past, but he readily admits to murdering the roughly two dozen people buried in his garden. He is committed to a psychological institution and refuses to speak to anyone for years until meeting the protagonist: a female psychiatrist played by Kathy Baker (who was also in The Cider House Rules, Edward Scissorhands, and many TV series over the years). To her, the serial killer reveals himself to be Satan in human form.
The entire film has been on youtube for a few years. Either no one bothers to take it down or the studio that owns it doesn't care about it? Not sure, but the link above is the full film.
This movie is interesting to me not because it's good as a whole (it really isn't), but due to the fact that it's one of the better representations of Satan in a film, I think, despite the fact that the whole of the film is rather low budget and weak. Goldblum is the perfect cast for this role and the writers / directors of this film understand better than most how to portray such a character. The horrible things that he did as a serial killer are eluded to but not shown, while what is shown is his clever, polite, and well mannered but vaguely intimidating / threatening demeanor.
What the film gets right, which so many other attempted depictions of angels and demons get wrong, is the delicate balance between the demon character's agency and physical limitations. Agency in that the presumably more-powerful-than-human demon character must want something that he can't get on his own, physical limitations in that the demon character has to be somehow subtly less powerful than his human counterparts, and balance in that these aspects of the characters have to be molded into a coherent narrative. Coherent in that the audience doesn't laugh and say "that's stupid, why doesn't the metaphysical being just magic the shit he wants into existence."
Biblical / Religious characters are difficult to write and depict well for the above reasons, and ultimately if you wrack your brain on them long enough trying to do so, it becomes apparent that you're not going to do a better job than John Milton did with Paradise Lost, so Milton's Satan becomes, over the centuries, the baseline upon which all future Satan characters are judged.
Mister Frost gets Satan right... sadly it doesn't get many other characters right or it would've been a very good film.

2021.12.04 13:30 danfromeuphoria Not all downloaded wrestlers appear as free agents in Fire Promoter

I downloaded about 14 wrestlers from the Workshop and then I began my new custom promotion in Fire Promoter. I chose six of these downloaded wrestlers to start with and then marked the rest of them as "Free Agents" but upon starting the game I only see some in the free agent pool. Is that normal?
I thought perhaps the wrestlers I downloaded were incomplete so I attempted to start once again but this time with the wrestlers who did not show up as "Free Agents" to see if the game would crash but it did not. When I started it seemed only a select few made it into the "Free Agents". Does anyone have any advice?

2021.12.04 13:30 BlG_Iron Google just lost a customer

I've been using google play for a number of years. Last month I bought my nephew a google play card. Kept the receipt and just gave it to him now. Even with the receipt he can't authorize it. He has both the original card and the receipt. Before we use to talk to a live person on the other end but now with their BS covid excuse they discontinued that. I'm honestly thinking of doing a class action lawsuit. They should have a disclaimer when you buy the card that you have to jump through hoops to authorize it.

2021.12.04 13:30 datalyzerwastaken Reach new audiences by cross posting blog content on Twitter

You want to grow your blog and reach new audiences. Twitter is a great way to do just that. But there is a right way and a wrong way of promoting on twitter
The Wrong way:
Tweet out a link to your blog post, with a couple of lines of description and hope for the best.
This will help drive traffic to your blog from your existing audience but will not help you reach new audiences.
A better way:
Create a thread summarizing your blog post.
Pack a piece of insight in every tweet in that thread.
According to research at UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business, information acts on the brain’s dopamine producing reward system in the same way as money or food.
This dopamine hit will help you reach more people and add to the top of your funnel
What are some of the ways you promote your blog and reach new audiences?
