Delilah's Brief Review Of
The Da Vinci Code

I liked it. But then, I'm a big fan of histo-archetypal psycho-linguistic symbols and people speaking Latin on cell phones. (The English subtitles were a bit distracting, of course.)

I also enjoyed Ron Howard's homage to early 20th century film directors' depictions of historical recreation (like the flashbacks in Karl Freund's 1932 film, The Mummy).

My hope for those who see this film: If even one person leaves the theater wondering about the Councils of Nicea, I will deem this film adaptation a success.

Just my snarky opinion after eating way too much popcorn.

So you think you know Delilah?
