Pulp Fiction Actress Maria de Medeiros On Pulp Fiction's Enduring Appeal

First I want to say I’m really super-proud to have been part of that film. I think it shows how free cinema is-and should be- because if we look at it, Quentin completely disobeyed all the standards of what a film should be! Hollywood’s films have standards which are very recognizable, and Quentin did something completely different. I mean, it’s a challenge, it’s a mind challenge to put the pieces of the puzzle together. And so, I think it’s formidable to see Quentin’s amazing intelligence being displayed in that film, with its completely unusual form. I mean, we in Europe are very used to this proximity between literature and cinema, but Quentin, because he’s so curious and cultured, and he absorbs, and he’s very interested, he’s got a literary quality about his films that is amazing. I think when actors work with Quentin, they don’t change a word because it’s perfect. Basically, I think it’s amazing that he proclaims his freedom as an auteur.

Argentine Vice President Cristina Kirchner Gets 6 Years in $1B Corruption Case

Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, Argentina’s current vice president and the country’s former president, was found guilty of fraud charges on Tuesday in a high-profile corruption case, with a three-judge panel ordering her to serve six years in prison. The sentence is considerably lower than the 12-year term that Argentine prosecutors sought, arguing that the alleged scheme, which was related to public construction contracts, had cost the government nearly $1 billion. The panel also handed Kirchner, a divisive figure who held presidential office twice between 2007 and 2015, a lifetime ban from public office. Both the prison term and the ban will effectively remain in limbo until Kirchner has exhausted her appeals, a process that is expected to take years. “This sentencing, my compatriots, is not one based on the laws of the constitution,” the politician said following the verdict. “This is a parallel state, a judicial mafia.” The 69-year-old, who was widely expected to explore another presidential bid next year, also swore fiercely that she planned to step back from politics, saying, “I won’t be a candidate for anything, not president, not senator. My name will not be on any ballot.”Read it at The Wall Street Journal
