Nick Flynn: The Reenactments
Listen to/Watch entire show:
The Reenactments (W.W. Norton & Co.) recounts author Nick Flynn's strange days on the set of Being Flynn. His personal memoir, Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, was adapted into a film starring Robert De Niro and Paul Dano. The experience of watching De Niro and Julianne Moore playing his own parents became an occasion for Flynn to relive traumatic memories, and to reflect on the nature of consciousness, tragedy, poetry, and catharsis.
