6:42 pm
of reaction to chelsea beating spurs at wembley, for now that's all from us. at wembley, for now that's all from us. next it's the film review. the film directed by stanley tucci. and let's start with final portrait. i'm a massive stanley tucci fan as an actor. i know he's directed a few films before. i must confess i don't think i've seen any of them looking at the list. how does this work—out? there was a one called big night where he played a restaurant owner with his brother played by tony shalhoub. stanley tucci doesn't pop up in this film, although tony shalhoub, who played his brother, does, again playing a brother interestingly, of alberto giacometti, playing diego giacometti. this is a story that i didn't know and a story that stanley tucci, strolling along in paris 25 years ago in one of the bouquinistes along the seine, and picked up this memoir of this american writer called james lord, who'd sat for giacometti in his final days in paris. this is what the story is based on. james lord himself, it's his memoir, and played by actor armie hammer, who is the very patient subject of giacometti, who, if you know his work,

and there is an exhibition currently at the tate, i do urge you to see that, it does feature a lot of the work. he got very famous for the whittled—down sculptures, trying to get to the essence of humanity in an absurd world. stanley tucci being the impish character actor that he is doesn't really concentrate on the dark heart of the work, more the struggle of the artist and the pain that it is to sit for that artist because he can't make up his mind when his work is finished, if ever. so here is armie hammer playing james lord trying to work out how long he should book his vacation for. the end of the week. yeah. 0h, isee. i could change it again. i would like to know, you know, how many days do you need? oh, i don't know, i think it would be great to work for another week. a week? a week, yes, i think a week would be good. a week is fine. i canjust move my flight next wednesday. would that...
