The Barbarians Prepare to Invade Britain

The Barbarian Invasions, Denys Arcand's sorta-sequel to The Decline of the American Empire, opens in London on Friday. Here's The Guardian and The Telegraph.

Here's an interesting quote from The Telegraph article:

"I think we're at the end of the European civilisation that started with the Renaissance, of which the USA was the last bastion," [Arcand] says. "Where do you go in theatre after Samuel Beckett? Where do you go with painting after Warhol? You can't go further.
Discuss.

Post-script

Remember that time that Paul Wells and Terence Corcoran discussed The Barbarian Invasions on my blog? Those were good times. (Also, the only time I've seen Wells make a mistake. About anything. Ever. Sort of.)
