Cinecast #43: Fuzzy Math
Tuesday, 04 October 2005 01:00
Math is hard...  Let's listen to Cinecast #43

Proof: An intricately constructed story about math and madness adapted from the award-winning play by David Auburn, director John Madden's "Proof" has all the elements of great high-brow entertainment. The story is compelling enough, but Auburn (and co-screenwriter Rebecca Miller) seems more taken with the play's clever plotting than with the characters caught up within it. Auburn's story and Gwyneth Paltrow's lead performance were enough to keep Adam mildly interested; Sam was turned off by the play's exploitation of madness for entertainment's sake.

Also on the show, Listener Feedback, Massacre Theatre -- presented by Movies -- and a look ahead to Friday's Top 5 Actors.

Music by The Pale Pacific ... Cinecast theme music by Age of the Rifle.
