House of Derrida

Bookninja alerts us to the new Derrida film:

An action-packed new blockbuster in which our hero Jack, a secret CIA agent, infiltrates the French intellectual terrorist scene and starts a campaign of covert assassinations before finally staging his own death.


Apparently, it's actually "An odd portrait of Jacques Derrida, one of the most polemical and influential theorists of the end of the 20th century. The filmmakers 'deconstruct' the French thinker's private and professional life, in an attempt to capture the processes of an inquisitive and iconoclastic mind which has greatly influenced our way of understanding the limits of language."

Sounds fascinating.

Reading further, I found that Mark Z. Danielewski is listed under assistant editor, sound, and additional camera. I wonder if is this the same Danielewski of House of Leaves? Could be...
