Free time and Fay Grim
Monday is a day of free time for me, and I used it primarily for catching up with my writing. Ah, but in the evening it’s showtime: Carol and Sarah to Broken English starring Parker Posey, and I followed to Fay Grim, starring the same.
Fay Grim, USA/Germany 2006
Directed by Hal Hartley
Distributed by Magnolia Pictures
[best if read aloud in a monotone, to capture the spirit of the film]
Intrigue in Foreign lands
The lovely Parker Posey
In introducing the film, the director said, “It’s a sequel to Henry Fool, but it’s not necessary to have seen Henry Fool. You”ll be confused in any case. That’s about it.”
He was right.
I rode home on Pacific Avenue at nearly midnight. The street was deserted. I was able to leisurely coast from Octavia all the way to Polk, catching green lights at Gough, Franklin and Van Ness. I”ve always wanted to do that.
