For the three-day weekend, the TV ended up on the "Harry Potter Weekend" channel (I don't watch a lot of TV, but that's another story). During a moment of focus I noticed (again) Narcissa Malfoy and wondered (again), "Why?". Sometime later, during what I recall as the last movie in the series, there is a scene that does a close focus on her (forest, asking Harry if Draco still lives, he nods) as she turns toward the camera... Okay, that is full Random Access Memory (yeah, Daft Punk) and the overpowering demand to know those eyes and those cheekbones on the other end of wherever-I-know-them-from!

Ahem. Okay, Helen McCrory. Sure. No help. IMDB. Oh, no way! Hugo, "Mama Jeanne". Oh, heck. (also Skyfall and Penny Dreadful; I haven't seen either)

So, Hugo, you ask? I ran across the sound track on Spotify, thence to the opening scene (the first eight seconds!), and then to the movie itself.

Huh. Scorsese, Ben Kingsley, Christopher Lee (bit part), Sacha Baron Cohen, a couple of other familiar faces?

...and this evening, as I research spelling and links, I find out the storytelling that looked so like an overview of early film making was a Scorsese homage to Kingley's character.

Damn.
