    first half an hour is good

    characterisation of The French Wife as being captivated by yer man is a low point as is the ending's stupid apologia for the rambling man archetype, the wilderness as a place outside language for a man to discover himself rather than taken, more lies amerika tells itself about itself, laughs

    a bit too given to segmenting its characterisation on the basis of gender; it is men who are angry, political, intellectual and self-destructive. women want babies and marriage, they cry, it's unfortunate

    ending is a copout rather than a #tasteful elision. you'll show a suicide bombing in turkey but not an amerikan one
