Mock Squid Soup: August's Three Clues
Today, for this month's edition of Mock Squid Soup, all society members are invited to post three hints about their film choice for the month. All are welcome to guess, of course. My three clues:
1. This film is one of a very popular series. The original book series essentially saved the print media industry. No, I'm not exaggerating.
2. It is the first film in the series to address the pain of romantic love. Not mere jealousy. Pain.
3. One of the actors in the film passed away early this year. Universally revered as a supremely talented actor, he had impressive stage credentials in addition to his varied screen roles. In this movie, in particular, I was struck by how beautifully he moves.
Any guesses? Society reviews will be posted next Friday, August 12th. See you then. Meanwhile, please visit my fellow cinephiles today:
