Well, she is a perfect Gorgon now in London Spy--very scary!









She looks like Lillian Hellman when I saw her on Merv Griffin's talk show when I was just a lad.  ::)

Believe me, in London Spy, Charlotte Rampling is MUCH MUCH SCARIER than Lillian Hellman--"including 'and' and 'the' "!   ::) ::)  :laugh: :laugh:

London Spy
Episode 4
"I Know"










This 4th episode, "I Know", is tragically sad and bleak. It is also, with some of the mystery revealed, extremely interesting, even electrifying. The horror of the first episode, though, how it happened, is still largely hidden. I'm afraid that the 5th and last episode next week--might be hard to take.

However: Whishaw, Broadbent, Rampling, Holcroft--everyone--are amazing, Whishaw and Broadbent especially, and the story--and the love story (both love stories??)--is hugely affecting, heartbreaking. Someone in the UK, during the initial release, cleverly renamed the story "London Cry". Very clever--considering I've been crying in the shower in the morning for days. Awfully Brokeback, circa November-December 2005!

Sob!  :'(





Oh, thank goodness all three of them are ok (if only in real life  ::) )--
Well, if they can, maybe I guess I can survive London Spy after all!




See how easy that is?  :D

(Mobile phone rings)

Distorted voice: You're looking for answers. But are you ready for them?
Get in the hotel. Room 116.








Distorted voice: The bathroom. Get in. Clothes on.







Distorted voice: Now you're clean, we can talk a little freer.
Get changed.
Outside.


Danny: Where are we going?

Distorted voice: Do you want to know who Alex was or not?

Distorted voice: The doors are locked, Danny.
No way out.
No way back.
I want to take you on a journey... into Alex's past.


Distorted voice: Remember this place?
Are you sure you know what really happened in there?
Walk. (Distant laughter)








Distorted voice: A reservation. For two. (Phone beeps)

Waitress: There you go. Menu.

Doppelganger: Here I am. Alex's past.
(Separate from the surreal shock of the situation, it becomes apparent that,
in person, the accented, foreign voice of the Doppelganger is quite different
than the distorted voice on the phone--or on both phones?
)
