Elegy

I wasn’t expecting that much from this
movie,
because The
Wackness
, also starring Ben
Kingsley
, which was
hyped with it,was quite disappointing.

But this one you should see if you like good writing and acting
and pictures of the life of rich New Yorkers. Ben Kingsley really
draws you into his character in a way that doesn’t often happen.

Minor irritations

One scene has the Ben Kingsley character playing the piano with
a metronome going. The beat of the metronome has no relationship
whatsover to the beat of the music.

Dennis
Hopper
‘s accent kept reminding me
of the fake American accents British actors always put on. He was
born in Kansas, so he presumably comes by whatever accent he has
honestly, and maybe his is just the one the British actors use,
and I don’t hear it often enough to think of it as real.
