Film: Henry Fool
Sunday, February 10, 2008 - 3:00pm
The affectless precision of this filmmaker's previous work is absolutely no preparation for the brilliance and deep resonance of this contemporary parable. Without forsaking the clean, spare look and hyperreal clarity that are his trademarks, Mr. Hartley moves into a much larger realm with a meditation on, among other things, art, trust, loyalty, politics and popular culture. When Henry Fool (Thomas Jay Ryan) bursts mysteriously into the thankless life of Simon Grim (James Urbaniak) and urges this silent garbage man to start writing, the results are strange and sublime. Parker Posey plays Simon's slatternly sister with nonchalant wit in one of her best roles.
