An unfilmable (???) film, created by Himself. Said to be so entertaining that anyone who watches it will not be able to break away.
April 1, Year of the Depends Adult Undergarment
- the medical attaché receives The Entertainment
- it arrives in a plain padded mailer
- it bears a smiley face and envelope reads “HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!”
- return address points to Phoenix, AZ
- the cartridge is otherwise unmarked
What's it about?
- Marathe and Steeply discuss theories about it. (pp. 490-491)
- mostly around it being ultimately entertaining
- (and then there’s Marathe’s political screed about passivity)
- Molly Notkin’s description which (presumably) comes from
Joelle (pp. 788)
- that it otherwise sounds like a self-important (boring) art film with a technical trick that only an optics genius could love
- that it involves Joelle (naked and but veiled or otherwise facially distorted) talking (literally) down to the camera (again: fitted with some kind of crazy special lens) and going into some monologue about how death is always a woman, and how that woman is always your mother in your next life
- titled either Infinite Jest (V) or …(VI)
