The Nobody by Jeff LemirePosted: June 26, 2017 Filed under: Books, Comic | Tags: Books, Comic, English, Jeff Lemire Leave a comment
A short small town story about a sad and lonely invisible man, a botched experiment, a typical mad scientist fiasco, a lineman roaming snowy streets and a local teenage girl growing up and becoming friends with the fellow.
Beautiful art by Jeff Lemire, as always – but overall, that's just a trifle, which lacks intensity and depth of Lemire's other graphic novels, especially Essex County.
30 minutes and done.
House of Games by David MametPosted: June 18, 2017 Filed under: Books, Theater / Drama | Tags: David Mamet, English, Screenplay Leave a comment
Reading the original script of David Mamet's debut 1987 movie is a delight. A brilliant playwright and a brilliant filmmaker, Mamet's con men story keeps you glued to the pages, on the tip of your toes, anxious to move forward. A short 60+ page masterpiece.
A perfect read on a bench in the park. I need to watch this movie again – and soon.
