Didn't like this. Given the presentation, I expected something considerably deeper - and possibly more fantastic. Something about identity. I didn't care whether it was a Philip K. Dick approach, or a Bourne riff, or something else. But what I got was considerably more prosaic.
And any interest I had was utterly destroyed by a near-rape scene two-thirds in. I just didn't buy either of the characters' behaviour at that point, and it struck me as gratuitous, too.
Definitely the best film of the night, by a long way. My hopes were up when I saw Shane Black's name on the credits, and he didn't disappoint. Lovely, lovely post-modern narration by Downey Jr, with cinematic flair to match. Quirky, sparkling dialogue, and a somewhat convoluted plot that I'm sure I'll figure out if I have a pen and paper. But a good story.
And Val Kilmer's still getting work. Coo.
I was planning to configure the colour printer. However, while sorting out some Milford stuff, I noticed that I apparently didn't have any user-level printer support installed. Certainly lpr and lp were missing. Okay, so maybe Linux uses different commands these days, but xdvi hadn't noticed...
Started doing a download and install of various CUPS packages. Which appears to have hung. Sigh. I'm hoping the package manager does all the downloading first, and then kicks off the installation. But I'll leave it chugging away for now, just in case.
