A Wilderness of Mirrors

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 11:00 AM

A link to a Nov. 22 post on Arcade Fire was added today
to yesterday's "Dating an OS" post. 

That Nov. 22 post suggests a review related to a new film —

"If the spy wars of the later 20th century were fought
in 'a wilderness of mirrors,' beset by paradox and
moral uncertainty— evil done in the name of good—
then John le Carré, or, rather, the narrative voice that
went by the name John le Carré, was the perfect
choice to polish those mirrors. It was the voice of the
urbane, upper-class Englishman: courteous, opaque
and chilly, with a ruthless, penetrative intellect and
razor wit for the delivery of its insights."
