Notes from the Manager
Those of you read Stripped Books know how I like to shift up my art style now and then, and I’ve been meaning to do that in Multiplex for fake movies — or, like this, flashbacks — for some time. (I suppose I sort of did it in #235.) I’ve just never done any other flashbacks (besides #235), and on the few occasions I’ve done fake movies in the past, I haven’t had time to play around figuring out a different style.
So anyway, James’s flashback (and this three-parter) will conclude on Friday, with some more of the Regal Theater.
Since I added this late Monday, here it is again: The Playing in Peoria Podcast chatted with me about Multiplex, movies, and the greatest movie Robert Downey Jr. will never star in the other day, and you can check it out online now or download it directly from iTunes. Give their other shows a listen, too, because — being co-hosted by a bunch of comedians — the shit is hysterical. I highly recommend episodes 8 and 14.

There’s no telling how the film will turn out, but the trailer for The Theory of Everything impressed me by having a respectably balanced focus on both the life of Stephen Hawking (and relationship with his first wife) and the work he is so admired for, unlike so many other film biographies of so-called Great Men.
James Marsh (Man on Wire) directs Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in the November 7th release.
