Review: The Immortal Circus – Act One

Review: The Immortal Circus – Act One

“Can’t they make their own damn show?” I say.

“Come on,” Kingston says. “Faeries are proud. The Summer King would never stoop to imitating his enemy.”

“Besides,” Mel says, “The name Cirque du Soleil was already taken.”

I’m a sucker for cinematic scenes in books. I love it when an author’s description makes me wonder just how cool something would look if it were made into a movie. The first book in the A.R. Kahler’s Cirque des Immortels series has plenty of just that sort of scene. You’ve got a circus run by Queen Mab herself, filled with shape-shifting carneys, magicians with tattoos that change position when you’re not looking, and circus trailers that open into rooms in a completely different part of the country, if they’re part of this world at all. A battle late in the book pitches two armies of otherworldly creatures against each other (naiads, dryads, satyrs, centaurs, elves, and whatever shadow-thing it is that lives under the trailers), and the whole conflict is centered around the possession of a secret demon and the lucrative trade in dreams. The book starts with a gruesome murder and ends with more secrets and lies, and I can only hope that the next two books in the series develop the characters better because the main character just hasn’t won me over at all.

Movie Issues: TUSK

In film these days the three act structure is law and modern audiences get confused when movies don’t go the way their sub-conscious minds are used to. Stories rarely surprise people these days; now the best we can get are moments in a movie that may trick us, but the story always remains the same. Writer, director, and podcaster Kevin Smith has squarely taken on the challenge of going against his comedy roots and the old film standards in his latest film, Tusk. Spun off from lark on one of his podcasts with BFF and long time collaborator (except this time), Scott Mosier, Smith took the concept that had him and listeners dying with laughter and turned it into the feature film out today.

The film is drastically dark and filled to the brim with treats for the podcast fans, but has the cult comedy icon made a movie too far out of his comfort zone and too inside Smodcast for audiences?
