Here’s To You, Undergrad Who Slept Through Hannah Arendt’s Lectures

by evanmcmurry

Shorter Hannah Arendt biopic: if we don’t smoke cigarettes in every scene, the Nazis win.

Also, there’s a great shot, during Arendt’s climactic defense of herself, of a crowded New School lecture hall. The camera pans over about 100 undergraduate faces, one of which, center left, is asleep. College!
