Monday night I went to the Colony
to see Roman de Gare
. This film has enough twists and contrivances that I find it difficult to discuss it without giving away major plot points - in my opinion sometimes "it's the journey, not the destination" when applied to narratives is not completely true. So this film involves a murder, a serial killer who uses magic tricks, the craft and profession of writing, and boats. Along the way there is a slaughtered pig, a loudly faked orgasm, a farce, class collision, and wine. Hard to talk of this film without spoilers, meaning there are twists. Very meta story within a story kind of stuff, much clever fun. ( paging David Mamet to the white courtesy phone.... )
Probably back to the Colony tonight for the 9:15 show of the French spy farce _OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies!_ if nothing else arises. Ping if interested.
