French President Emmanuel Macron spoke to Russian President Vladimir Putin on the phone today and understandably, he needed to document his reaction with a post-call photo shoot. The French government released a few candids and Macron looks anguished.
Almost as anguished as a certain beautiful and enigmatic litigator raised in a monastery who suffers from excruciating physical pain from a childhood spinal injury. As a mysterious genius who takes up residence on Lispenard Street and tries to learn to love himself via his adoptive parents as an adult. As an accursed king almost worthy of a Man Booker Prize.
Macron is doing his best A Little Life (or its French title Un Vie Commes Les Autres). Melodrama transcends language and circumstance, as does this now-infamous David Hujar photograph of a man orgasming on the cover.
Je suis Jude!
