Big Screen Text #013: Body Of Lies

What’s with bloated, self-regarding but ultimately hollow blockbusters, and the apparent belief that by throwing a bit of poetry at it some of the implied high art might stick?

Always with the bloody poetry quotations…

Anyway, here’s Ridley Scott having a crack with his paean to spookery, Body Of Lies:

I and the public know

What all schoolchildren learn,

Those to whom evil is done

Do evil in return.

W.H. Auden
