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.


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.)
