"In a time of such free-floating anxiety and bad political hair, with everything running on empty, it’s hard to think of anything in terms of show or no show . . . I find myself thinking about an image of an entertainer, dead now, but with perfect hair . . . This man with perfect hair, turning his back on the world, face to the wall. And maybe also the fact that the image is not original but a copy of a copy of a copy, and though it is obviously him (or pretty obviously), there is always a chance it is not.” - Chris Petit
