They demanded the end of fines, stigma, police harassment, and the release of 10 sex workers who had been imprisoned a few days earlier for soliciting.

smoking was raised recently during a conference that focused on HIV in the U.S. and how we can increase awareness of the use of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis that prevents HIV infection in HIV-negative people. At the close of the conference, one of the speakers asked the audience, “What’s wrong with being a whore? ” What I found most shocking wasn’t the question, but the way the crowd erupted in thunderous applause in response.
Those confessions are largely avowals of traditional, even reactionary, values, decrying the new morality of the sixties and the democratic values of technocratic modernity. “The Mother and the Whore” advances ironically, by moving backward, not just in its aesthetic but in its substance. One of the prime entries in this year’s edition of the New York Film Festival is a movie that played there in 1973, “The Mother and the Whore” (October 5th-6th). Directed by Jean Eustache, it has been very hard to see in recent years; the film was released here on VHS, but not until late 2021 did the rights holder, Eustache’s son Boris, agree to its restoration, theatrical rerelease, and eventual DVD issue. The movie won the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes in 1973 and was widely hailed as an instant classic, but it’s an elusive one, in ways that have nothing to do with availability.
It’s overwhelming in its length and in its emotional intensity—it’s a self-consuming masterwork that seems to burn itself up as it passes through the projector. It’s a film of rage and self-punishment, of arrogance and humiliation and, ultimately, of ferocious irony about pleasure and power, desire and submission. (I won’t worry much about spoilers; the movie is so vast that, regardless of any description, it leaves whole worlds to be discovered in the viewing.) Yet, for a film that blazes with the spirit of youth, its sense of cinematic form is surprisingly traditional. What’s original in its style is the sheer profusion of dialogue, which exceeds in quantity, density, and tone even the talk in contemporaneous films by Éric Rohmer (eighteen years Eustache’s elder). Where Rohmer’s cinematic language is dialectical, Eustache’s is torrential. The characters in “The Mother and the Whore” don’t so much talk with each other or even at each other as bare their souls verbally and pour out confessions in soliloquies—especially the movie’s protagonist, Alexandre (Jean-Pierre Léaud).

I was amused to learn that the movie has recently been edited into a cleaned-up version for the airlines, in which Richard Gere and Roberts are basically just good friends who happen to meet when she gives him directions.
It could even be political, since Jerusalem was the center of political power in Canaan and, under the authority of the Romans, it ruled a considerable amount of territory and less powerful peoples. On this thesis “the kings of the earth” would be “the kings of theland” . Such local rulers of the land of Canaan would naturally resent Jerusalem and wish to cooperate with the Romans in its destruction—just as history records they did.
