Very kind of you to say that, Scott! Confess I'm a tad frustrated with this section. What? So short?! And, like you, I feel a bit short-changed when Iris is off the scene. Finding out what must have happened to her lover via the mirrored experience of the lovers in the story-within-the-story lessens the impact, I think.

Agree with Helen that the quality of writing continues to be tremendous.

Can't wait to see how Iris's own story rounds off. Still some loose ends. Does Richard get his come-uppance? What was the deal between him and Laura? Will Iris be reconciled with her granddaughter Sabrina?

  • : The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya

    The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya
    Unlike any animation I have seen. Quite stunning. (****)

  • : The Killer Inside Me

    The Killer Inside Me
    Odd movie. Doesn't really work. (***)

  • : Gone Girl

    Gone Girl
    Pretty good, I thought, but not amazing. I had already read the book so perhaps the lack of surprise hindered things a bit. (***)

  • : The Lunchbox

    The Lunchbox
    An absolute delight. Beautifully acted. Loved this. (****)

  • : Atomised

    So much better than the book. (****)

  • : 20,000 Days on Earth

    20,000 Days on Earth
    Watched this for a second time. Just as good. (****)

  • : Le Mepris

    Le Mepris
    Brigitte Bardot, Jack Palance, Michel Piccoli and Fritz Lang star in a beautifully shot but terribly pretentious movie. Palance is awful throughout. (**)

  • : Labor Day

    Labor Day
    Was this a box office flop? I think it might have been. Shame, it was very good. (****)
