Review of 'The Good Night'
I sort of felt that there was something there that could have been developed in a better way - the artist coming to terms with not being great or successful, the relationship with a friend who is more successful, a fantasy about a woman who appears inaccessible because she only appears in dreams. It's really quite sad - the relationship that the artist has with his girlfriend is over but they both pretend it isn't, the dreamed-of woman turns out to be someone from a poster that is on the side of every bus (that is, not someone unique from his personal unconscious).
Watched via clever TV and Netflix...another not very good film from Netflix. Must get round to cancelling it.
