    Hardcover ¶ The Flick PDF º flick mobile, The Flick ePUBWhen will I ever learn I should know by now that the Pulitzer Prize for Drama might as well be a Razzie Award for really dumb plays Proof won the Pulitzer a play in which the protagonist learns that whereas a mathematical conjecture reuires proof love reuires trust Wow Hallmark cards have the same level of wisdom at a cheaper price August Osage County won a Pulitzer That had a real shocking incest revelation Well fine it's heartening to know that playwrights still think their jaded audiences in this age of sexual anarchy will be shocked by incest but in the history of drama incest revelations are a hackneyed trope and in the 2500 years since Sophocles have long since b

    Hardcover ¶ The Flick PDF º flick mobile, The Flick ePUBNothing much happens in this Pulitzer price awarded play Of course I liked the cinema setting and the name dropping of many famous and not so famous films Usually I'd love to see a play on stage but here I'm not sure I fear the many pauses would annoy me over time But reading was a nice experience A uick but somehow deep glimpse into the lives of three people and what effects digital changes bring to themall of our lives

    Hardcover ¶ The Flick PDF º flick mobile, The Flick ePUBWow okay I'm still trying to formulate my thoughts about this play because I enjoyed it so much It's incredibly thought provoking and harrowing in its representation of mental illness and race even though the mentions are subtle I absolutely adored Avery as a character in fact I loved all of the characters Each one was carefully crafted and incredibly diverse even if I didn't necessarily like them as people Annie Baker really understands the nuances of how people talk and act with one another which I really enjoyed I do wish that a few details

    Hardcover ¶ The Flick PDF º flick mobile, The Flick ePUBSaw this play this weekend At first I was highly concerned with the director's choice to incorporate prolonged silences into the work But upon reading excerpts of the play it seems these were all prescribed by the playwright turning the work into three hours of tedium The characters were disjointed and not compelling Also if the theme was to preserve authenticity in our modern age and to put a magnifying glass on the boredom of every day menial labor there are elegant ways to present these themes without putting the audience through that boredom Regarding the theme of authenticity look to Birdman as an example of how to explore the theme in a much compelling way On a positive note the actors' performances were spot on But this was not enough to carry an audience through a

    Hardcover ¶ The Flick PDF º flick mobile, The Flick ePUBThis play is amazing I didn't realize Baker also wrote The Aliens which I loved the first act of and which the second act seemed like a long drawn out denouement The Flick delivers and seems to have learned from this as it is simply great from start to finishThe Flick takes place in a single screen movie theater in a small town inside the theater The three characters are employees here Sam 35; Avery 20; and Rose 24 Sam has worked at the theater the longest has been passed over for a promotion to the projection booth and is given the task of training Avery in cleaning the theater after every show Their conversations they have while cleaning make up the bulk of the dialog in the play Rose mostly works in the projection booth but she comes down from time to time to interact with the two men It is never clear why Sam works there or Ros
