Saw #ThePlaceBeyondthePines. Like Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, compounded, w’ characters out of Wm. Faulkner.

#ThePlaceBeyondthePines. Some switch! Contrived, but Fateful, and not merely manipulation or dire coincidence. Terrible/mercy.

#ThePlaceBeyondthePines. Also a lot like, exactly like Marcel Pagnol’s Jean de Florette/Manon des Sources. Sins of the fathers…

#ThePlaceBeyondthePines. Dear movies. I know I sound like a fuddy-duddy, but enough w’ the cursing! I know about …

… I’ll grant your JD Salinger, your R. Towne, your R. Pryor & D. Mamet & J. Kelman. But this is different. You just sound stupid!
