- Jan 2, 2006Greetings John:
Hope your New Year is beginning well--Prior to Xmas we caught a
documentary entitled: "C.S. Lewis: Beyond Narnia," which, if this is
the one your friends refer to, had Brian Sibley doing commentary work
about Lewis, and an actor on a set aka the Kilns telling of Lewis'
life. As the actor spoke of Lewis' life in 1st person, there would be
a scene detailing that specific period being spoken of, i.e. an
Inklings meeting w/ Tolkien telling Lewis that "this just won't do"
re: Narnia, other actors there played Williams, Warnie et al. After
each scene Sibley would speak more on his life.
Its ok, pretty basic stuff one can read out of a biography, ala
Sayer's "Jack"--the acting and depictions of the Inklings are a
bit "hokey" and "cheesy" if my clumsy words make sense ---(have not
finished 1st cup o tea yet--still not awake :-)
