Why The Entire Third Act Of The Last Duel Was Written By Nicole Holofcener

Ridley Scott's "The Last Duel" has a script with a very distinct three-act structure. That script, written by Nicole Holofcener, Ben Affleck, and Matt Damon, follows in the footsteps of "Rashomon," telling a story from three different perspectives -- knight Jean de Carrouges (Damon), his wife Marguerite (Jodie Comer), and de Carrouges' one time friend turned enemy Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver). This approach allows the film to present alternate versions of certain moments, creating a richer stor...

The Last Duel Review: Prestige Period Filmmaking, Stunning Swordfights, And Piercing Performances [Venice 2021]

Prestige period filmmaking rarely sizzles like "The Last Duel." Ridley Scott, master of high-budget history, is mercifully in "Gladiator" form rather than "Kingdom of Heaven" with his latest medieval movie. All is as it should be here: stunning swordfights, dazzling duels, nimble narrativization, and psychologically piercing performances from the trio of leads.The film's accomplishments teeter precariously on the edge of sensitive gender politics given the subject matter.

Ray Bradbury Wrote the First Draft of Fahrenheit 451 on Coin-Operated Typewriters, for a Total of $9.80

Image by Alan Light, via Wikimedia Commons It sounds like a third grade math problem: “If Ray Bradbury wrote the first draft of Fahrenheit 451 (1953) on a coin-operated typewriter that charged 10 cents for every 30 minutes, and he spent a total of $9.80, how many hours did it take Ray to write his story?” (If you’re doing the math, that’s great, but you might be in the wrong class.) Bradbury’s composition of Fahrenheit 451 demonstrates two of the prolific writer’s most insistent demands among h...

Antique Love Letters

    French antique love letters are hard to come by. Love letters aren't just between two lovers, the one above was written to someone's grandfather.      The love letters that I found are on embossed paper (14 x 10 inches). Most have paper flowers and birds on them, often tied with a pastel ribbon.
