The Week Ends
Some weeks have setbacks, stories of friends' relationships that struggle at the threshold, and multiple murders. About setbacks, all I can say is a few weeks before a conference deadline, we, the researchers, sift through the pile of papers and sometimes a gem emerges, other times one gets a paper cut. I can speak about the murders more. On Friday, I chose to watch the movie Before the Devil Knows You are Dead, a tale of murders, more or less projected on to family members, very disturbing! Then today, in a spur, I went to watch a lowkey adaptation (Wicked Tavern Tales; Welcome to Hell's Hound... where the Beer Flows Freely and the Tales are Tall... Or Are They? Written by Greg Oliver Bodine; Directed by Amber Estes) of three tales due to Edgar Allan Poe, of cats, wine connoisseurs and men with cat-like eyes, all murdered, bricked off into cellars, plaster walls or simply stifled, but their sounds exact revenge.
