Comment:        RE: SHK 13.0335 Scotland P.A.

In Sunday's Arts and Leisure section of the New York Times there was a
feature about Scotland, PA, which opens on Friday.  I had the pleasure
of being mentioned by the director though, unfortunately, not by name.
Now my colleagues are referring to me as the anonymous "great guy" after
seeing me described thusly: "We just had a screening hosted by a
Shakespeare scholar, a great guy."  This goes beyond Warhol's idea of
everyone being famous for fifteen minutes.  Now it's everyone will be
anonymously famous for fifteen minutes.

Fame ain't even fleeting!

I saw a trailer for this movie (before seeing "The Royal Tenenbaums").
It's a version of _Macbeth_  set in Scotland, PA. The setting is less
than royal--Macbeth and Lady Macbeth (Maura Tierney) play cook/wait
staff at a fast-food restaurant called "Duncan's."  Andy Dick plays one
of the witches.  M and LM take over Duncan's after offing the
owner-king, and you know the outcome.  It may be another attempt, like
"Ten Things I Hate about You,"  and "Romeo+Juliet" to appeal to younger
filmgoers.
