    Brideshead Revisited

    The Wackness

    I'm no nearer to understanding . . .

    Stephanie: (to Luke, at the Fire Island beach: ) "I see the dopeness in everything, and you just see the wackness."


    In 1994 I was totally away from the drug/sex scene: I was in teaching and doing TV 25's World Film Classics. That was it, so now I avidly watch retro films such as Wackness to bone up on that not-regrettably-blank part of my life. (The lack of cell phones alone is a pleasant recollection.)

    Brick Lane

    A story simply told . . .

    A story simply told, often told, can be an affirmation of our shared humanity. And so it is with Brick Lane, about a Muslim immigrant woman, Nazneen (Tannishtha Chatteriee), coming to East London in the early 1980's. Her repression as a housewife is the stuff of cultural clich? and also occasionally boring as we endure her silence in the face of a narrow minded businessman husband.
