     This month’s must see movie has a rather tenuous Middle-earth link and an intriguing take on fantasy and the nature of storytelling.  It also stars Lee Pace, an actor who has hovered on the brink of stardom for too long and may well steal Orlando Bloom’s “Hottest Elf” crown with his darkly enigmatic portrayal of Legolas’ father, King Thranduil of Mirkwood.

     There is still time to catch The Fall before the release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.  If you enjoy the trailer then watch the full movie right here!

     We could not allow Puppet Month to go by at The Arcade of Arts & Arcana without wishing a very Happy Birthday to Mr. Punch who is celebrating 350 years of terrifying minors with his anger-management issues.

 

     Here are a few Punch facts to peruse if the pictures haven’t made you run screaming from this post ~

*  Punch & Judy performers are known as “Professors” and are sometimes assisted by a “Bottler” who corrals the audience, collects money and provides musical accompaniment. 

*  Mr. Punch is a manifestation of the mythological Trickster archetype.  His current anglicized form was adapted from the sixteenth century Neapolitan character Pulcinella from the Italian Commedia Dell’ Arte. 

*  Diarist Samuel Pepys recorded Punch’s début in London’s Covent Garden in 1662.

*  Punch regularly beats the other characters with a wooden baton known as a “slapstick”, a name now used as a collective term for a genre of physical comedy.

*  The Punch & Judy Show was originally intended for adults.  Contentious characters such as The Devil and Punch’s mistress Pretty Polly were sidelined in the late Victorian era as the performances were adapted for children.

*  The device which creates Punch’s familiar rasp is called a swazzle.

There's No Room Back Here.

I know I’m late to the game here but this is amazing. I only discovered Street of Crocodiles after reading Bruno Schulz for the first time, embarrassingly only a few days ago. Gotta start somewhere.

EAT YOUR HEART OUT, DAVID LYNCH.

On a side note, Bruno Schulz is my new obsession. I will facebooklike him in my heart for ever and ever and ever. I’m aware that I’m a huge geek because I’m fangirling over a dead Polish author with a very small body of work, a man who was most likely a bit creepy.

Example A:

This is an old picture and the quality is compromised clearly, but LOOK AT HIS FACE. Stop staring at me like that, stop it. No.

In any case, the short novel The Street of Crocodiles / The Cinnamon Shops are online. Go read a book! (On a computer screen.) Even the cover…
