Charon’s Advent calendar: Day Twelve

It is always a pleasure to see student law societies taking their law studies seriously by looking at law in different ways and it gives me pleasure to give some modest publicity to law students at Birkbeck College, University of London for inviting a film director over to talk to them about The Specialist.

“The Specialist” comes at an interesting time in the culture. The producer and director, Eyal Sivan, has compiled and assembled black-and-white footage of the trial of the SS officer and war criminal Adolf Eichmann, and his film is the grimmest possible precursor to the occasionally frivolous “Court TV,” which plays on the current fascination with watching the judicial process grind exceedingly slow, and exceedingly fine. {The New York Times, April 12, 2000}

  1. films??? oh per-lease.

    call themselves students? then surely they should be swinging from the union flag and attempting to commit criminal damage – young people today are rubbish aren’t they? when i was a student i didn’t attempt to cause criminal damage, i made bloody sure i damaged stuff.

    it’s sociology i blame.
