"Duality" Watch

Sorry Christopher Coppola, but someone else is using that word to describe his film.

Background: Whenever I heard a director talk about the duality of something in his/her film - I have to turn it off. The word is often misused and always sounds prententious. To me. The guy writing. Maybe not you. We get that. But I do.

Location: BBC 4: Film Programme podcast
The Offender: Harmony Korine writer
of Kids
Reason: He was talking about using celebrity impersonators in his film as actors gave his characters "Duality."
Ugh. It's someone in a Charlie Chaplin outfit playing a plummer. Doule ugh.
