James Bond 007: revisiting Octopussy

We've arrived at Roger Moore's penultimate Bond. But isn't it about time somebody fought Octopussy's corner?

After the comedown of For Your Eyes Only, the series is back on a high. A very good-natured, occasionally thrilling escapade that boasts an impressive roster of villains, a finely developed heroine, unusually meaty roles for series stalwarts General Gogol and Q, a nuclear bomb and a gloriously stupid title. Yes, Roger Moore has aged to the point where counting the wrinkles is a legitimate distraction. And many valid criticisms can be levelled about plot and credibility. But the good outweighs, or certainly overwhelms, the bad in Octopussy. Still, he really should have quit after this one.

The Villain: Kamal Khan got his break by winning the talent competition Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Singing Superstar - and that was just the beginning. 2012 hit Ishk Sufiana launched Khan into stardom and he bagged

The ‘Blue Velvet’ Project, #121

Second #5687, 94:47

Jeffrey approaches Sandy’s house, to pick her up for a date.

He wears a black shirt and a white tie.

Neither he nor the audience, at this point, know the meaning of the police car.

The lens flare cuts the screen in half horizontally.

In the fantasy, science fiction dimension of the film, the blue light is a laser beam, aimed at Jeffrey.

The car is Detective Gordon’s, the Man in Yellow.

He will enter the house, and will spook Jeffrey.

In response, Detective Williams will take him by the shoulders and tell him: “Easy does it, Jeffrey. Behave yourself. Don’t blow it.”

In a different context, he could be warning Jeffrey—who has just told Sandy that she “looks great”—to watch his behavior with her on their date.

What is Jeffrey a detective of, now?

“The idea was to eradicate it, not figure it out.
