The Queen

by on October 24, 2006 at 7:24 am in Film | Permalink

One of the few must-see movies of the year.  In addition to its dramatic virtues and superb acting (read Matt’s review), it offers economics, public choice, and political philosophy.  The moviemakers appear to understand Thomas Schelling on focal points and convention, "showing that you care" theories of signaling, David Hume on public opinion, and Michael Oakeshott on tradition, among many other ideas.

You saw Nietzschean values in Devil Wears Prada, and now you’re seeing Michael Oakeshott in The Queen?

You got me to see Devil Wears Prada, and it really was surprisingly good. Now I’ll have to see this too. The preview looks good.
