We watched the 1959 movie Les Yeux Sans Visage. It was just about as unsettling as I expected it to be. I really liked it, despite some fairly serious pacing issues. Highly recommended to fans of gothic literature. It's a bit reminiscent of the 20th Century works we've been reading in Spooky Book Club of late.
I am doubting the casting of Charlize Theron as Aeon Flux. I have this sinking feeling that the movie is not going to be particularly faithful to the tone of the original show. I'm not confident that it's even possible to capture that dizzyingly weird, creepy atmosphere that made the show so great in the medium of a live action film. Wish they'd just done an animated feature.
On a completely unrelated note, I've decided that in order to make work more interesting, I'm going to insist on referring to the Institute's business continuity suite as "the alpha site". I may also start referring to SEC officers as System Lords.
Also, you should A.) decide to come to Beltane, at least for Saturday evening, and then B.) email me to let me know. Do it now! Avoid the rush!
