LATELY — 23 June 2004


I’ve been plan­ning to write about Monster for a while, but I never seem get the time or mo­ti­va­tion to do it properly, so I’ll do a quick jobbie on it now. I have two points:

  1. Monster is a very well-done film, and Char­l­ize Theron does a ex­cel­lent job.
  2. In every scene, one is suprised anew by how bad a beau­ti­ful movie star can be made to look. (Or, alternatively, how bad the di­rec­tor has allowed her char­ac­ter to look.)
