The Pink Panther

Cyclists falling over: The Movie.

This film has a powerful cast.

Steve Martin is the protagonist, and he nails most of the skits. Emily Mortimer is completely unrecognisable, zat French accent iz wird. Beyoncé is just a cameo, even though she is prominent in all the ads.

Ironically, there are almost no French actors. Jean Reno tries hard to look like a foreigner playing a Frenchman.

Since I did not watch the Peter Sellers version (yet), I have no frame of reference. It seems like a middle of the road affair, instead of the criminal disgrace others have spoken about.


This is my place for ramblings about sequences of images that exploit the human visual limitation know as persistence of vision.
