Hacker's Diary

A rough account of what I did with Emacs recently.

November 1
I saw Chinatown a long time ago, long enough that about the only thing I could remember was Jake getting his nose adjusted with a switchblade... I dunno. It's a classic, sure, but (a) Roman Polanski and (b) it feels like the final scene just kinda throws everything away. Which is maybe the point, but it doesn't really feel like it fits. Maybe I just have poor expectations about how these things should work out.

Aha, and I learn that the screenwriter and the director disputed how it should end, and the director took over and wrote the final scene. Which explains why it feels like it doesn't fit regardless of whether it's the "right" ending or not.
