the mysterious dichotomy of the JB
A Prarie Home Companion


>In what would cause a fantastic media frenzy, Clifford Irving (Gere) sells his bogus biography of Howard Hughes to a premiere publishing house in the early 1970s - says the plot outline. Hurrrrrrrrr.<br>Moderately entertaining - I just was convinced that there was enough of a story in the story - an interesting documentary I could understand, but I wasn't engaged by the emotional journey of the characters - maybe because (in at least as it was represented here) there was no learning, no spiritual development and therefore no redemption of the Irving character. I didn't really care about him, he seemed so thick and slow to cotton on. Gere played him as a rogue and a chancer, but not lovable. Give me Homer any day.<br>(They did have a lovely house in the country though, a wooden one, old with a studio/workspace across the drive. Which did excite my imagination).<br></p>
