Quotes

James Joyce: This is never an eight iron. It's a fucking FIVE!
[to shop girl]
James Joyce: Do you think I'm fecking blind? Giving me a five, and I the cock of the land! You are no more than nothing. And give us a pencil as well... and a couple of those tees... and a Topic. No, not a Milky Way you arse, a Topic! All fecund in its nuttiness.

Excellent short film!
5 January 2002 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

I saw this directly before The Others in the Savoy in Dublin, & was pleasantly surprised. The short deals with a 'Waiting for Godot' type story, with James Joyce & Samuel Beckett waiting for WB Yeats to show up, so they can play pitch & putt. Joyce is a raving lunatic, while Beckett just looks at the golf ball, not uttering a single word 'til the very end, & even then in true Beckett fashion! Part of the 'Short Shorts' series, this is one of the better films to come out of Ireland in a long while (and that includes any feature stuff!).
