@macgenie I watched the first half (disc 1) on Thursday evening, and I’m about to start the second half in just a few minutes…

So far, it’s been mostly as I remember it, with just a few “wait, was that in the original?” moments. Also: in this version, I am even less confident that Eugene has the slightest grasp of Claire’s motivations than I thought so before. (That is, I think we learn more about Eugene’s “male gaze” than we do about Claire herself when we’re listening to his somewhat clueless bloviations. How different if, say, Winter, or “Trevor McPhee” — or even Claire herself! — had provided the voice-over…)

Gotta go! “Movie sign!”
