Premodern Help for Postmodern Times
Is Mark Wahlberg the real existential detective?
After reading, Matt Kirby’s insightful interpretation, I went back and saw Huckabee’s a second time. Like Eternal Sunshine, the second time was better than the first. What I liked most (besides Hoffman’s and Tomlin’s fabulous tonge-in cheek performances) was the marrying of modern French Philosophy (Isabelle H) and older French Philosophy (Hoffman and Tomlin). And, finally, a performance that Mark Wahlberg sank his teeth into!
Nicely written. Somehow both an easy read and a mental exercise at once. Mozart would be proud.
Lets hope there are more like Smitty.
