The Sixth Sense (1999)

The color red is intentionally absent from most of the film, but is used prominently in a few isolated shots for “anything in the real world that has been tainted by the other world” and “to connote really explosively emotional moments and situations”.

June 21st 1527: Niccolò Machiavelli dies

On this day in 1527, the Italian thinker Niccolò Machiavelli died in Florence aged 58. He was born in Florence in 1469 and became a central figure of the Renaissance that coloured Florentine life during the 15th and 16th centuries. Machiavelli was involved in city politics, especially during the fourteen years when the powerful Medici family were exiled from power when he was a diplomat. Upon their return Machiavelli was dismissed for his opposition to their rule and thus occupied his time writing what has become considered his magnum opus: The Prince. This book is often considered a kind of handbook for ruthless politicians, as it detailed how one must be prepared to use any means to preserve political power. However some scholars have suggested that the work was more of a satire than prescriptive guide. Machiavelli died in 1527, and was buried in the Church of Santa Croce in Florence.
