    MAKE A RESERVATION FOR 'MY DINNER WITH ANDRE''

    In MY DINNER WITH ANDRE (1981), directed by Louis Malle, two New York intellectuals (real life stage director André Gregory and actor Wallace Shawn, who together wrote the unscripted-sounding script) have a reunion in a chic restaurant and, over a fine and many-coursed meal, talk about their lives. Some people think the film is deadly boring; others (as I) love it. André and Wally could not be more different; yet I think of them as merely two sides of one person: dreamer, pragmatist. Over the course of the evening, with brief interruptions by an elderly, cadaverish waiter (whose tics and blinks suggest that he is bewildered by the oddity of the men he's serving), each diner does his best to explain how he’s coping with the world -- André talks to trees and Wally is happy if there’s not a dead fly in his cold cup of coffee. When they finally part, Wally treats himself to a taxi ride home. It’s night. Gazing out the window, he narrates that he remembers every block, every shopfront from his childhood; yet he stares as if he’s seeing the world for the very first time. It's as if, over his dinner with André, Wally had somehow been, in a tiny way, reborn.
