Pirate Day

One day in a film theory class - and I've told this story too many times - an essay asserted that Jaws was best understood in the context of Watergate. At the time it pissed me off to no end, but given the state of current affairs from Brianna Lahara on down, I can't says I'm particularly surprised Pirates are the hot new thing. This should be the biggest Pirate Day in history, so I want non-stop arrghing, me maties, and stuff like that, ok everyone?

Yes - that's the best I got.

When I first read this I thought it said "Jews were best understood in the context of Watergate". That would be such a terrible but also awesome argument to bring up in a film theory class.
