The Case for Baggage.
on 18 October 2016
Very disappointing, I had high hopes for this, but it's clumsily written, and even more clumsily dealt with as a subject. Every section begins the same way - a comparison is made to a legal/criminal case, then a ham-handed interview is conducted with a so-called expert. Endless questions seem to seek to say how earnest this all is, as if trying to convince us that a twee answer at the end of a mountain of questions will somehow prove the point - it doesn't.
The interviews are conducted in excruciating style, with constant interjections by the 'interviewer', giving pointless descriptions of how he and the other person looked, or movements each made, giving no relevance at all to the script other than to be annoying. It's almost as if this person has a screw loose which prevents him seeing everyday life as it really is. Very bad writing, which is a shame, as this is the most important subject there is, and he probably means well. But then, so did Hitler.
