Soapdish

If you haven’t figured this out by now, let me just throw it all out there: I rather enjoy meta-textual works. I recently completed At Swim-Two-Birds, and found that novels strange layers of self-reference and literalizing the concept of characters hijacking the plot to meet their own desires to be a witty and strange read. So a film like Soapdish is right up my alley. It’s a delicate balanci... read more

Celeste Talbert has been the queen of the soaps for over two decades. Montana Moorehead needs to get her out of her way before she can move on and begins her program to get her to leave. She hires an old boyfriend of Celeste to be on the show and has Celeste become a murderer in the script, but each attempt has unforseen consequences.

"32 as David Seton Barnes David: You're fired. costume designer: Oh god.
