The Personal History of David Copperfield, aka the Latest Armando Iannucci

Holy cow, how did I not hear about this until now???

I heard an interview with Armando Iannucci on NPR last week about the movie, it really made me want to see it.

For once I wasn’t afraid of spoilers, since I read the book about 3 times over for class back in the mid 80s. But after listening to the interview, I realized, wait, I don’t remember what happens at all. I’m sure it will all come back to me when I watch the movie, but right now, it’s a complete blank.

Goddammit Armando Iannucci has to stop making stuff, because every time one gets a thread, I think it’s about me.

Here was that interview from last Saturday:

Streaming in the US tomorrow:

It was on Amazon Prime in the UK, but not sure what the US situation is. Fantastic film though, visually inventive and funny, some great performances as well.
