Βασιλιάς Ληρ με τον Τόνι

Ο Τόνι κάνει δικό του το ρόλο, και το κάνει παρέα με φανταστικούς ηθοποιούς και υπό τη μαεστρία του Richard Eyre που υπέγραψε και την επίσης definitive εκδοχή της Henriad με τη σειρά “The Hollow Crown“.
Συγκλονιστικό θέαμα, ακόμα και μετά την 6η θέαση, και αντίθετα με την ταινία “Weekend at Bernie’s II” σε κάνει να σκέφτεσαι μετά…

King Lear (Anthony Hopkins): Is there any cause in nature that makes these hard hearts?

King Lear (Anthony Hopkins):
Thou must be patient. We came crying hither.
Thou know’st the first time that we smell the air
We wawl and cry.
I will preach to thee. Mark me.
When we are born, we cry that we are come
To this great stage of fools.

Weeping willow

Weeping willow with your tears running down
Why do you always weep and frown?

Is it because he left you one day?
Is it because he could not stay?
On your branches he would swing
Do you long for the happiness that day would bring?
He found shelter in your shade.
You thought his laughter would never fade.

Weeping willow, stop your tears.
There is something to calm you fears.
You think death has ripped you forever apart.
But I know he’ll always be in your heart.

** SPOILER ALERT **

Σε αυτή την σκηνή, της απόκοσμης σειράς “Twin Peaks”, ο Agent Cooper έχει αγκαλίτσα τον ετοιμοθάνατο Leland και του λέει:

“Leland, the time has come for you to seek the path. Your soul has set you face-to-face with the clear light, and you are now about to experience it in all its reality, wherein all things are like the void and cloudless sky, and the naked, spotless intellect is like a transparent vacuum, without circumference or center. Leland, in this moment, know yourself, and abide in that state… Look to the light, Leland. Find the light.”

Τα απόκοσμα λόγια του Agent Cooper δεν είναι πραγματικά δικά του, δηλαδή τελείως από το μυαλό του απόκοσμου David Lynch. Βασίζονται σε απόσπασμα του Bardo Thodol (γνωστό και ως Tibetan Book of the Dead), το οποίο υποτίθεται πρέπει να διαβάζεται στους ετοιμοθάνατους καθώς περιμένουν να περάσουν στην επόμενη κατάσταση:

“O, nobly-born [so-and-so by name], the time hath now come for thee to seek the Path [in reality]. Thy breathing is about to cease. Thy guru hath set thee face to face before with the Clear Light; and now thou art about to experience in its Reality in the Bardo state, wherein all things are like the void and cloudless sky, and the naked, spotless intellect is like unto a transparent vacuum without circumference or centre. At this moment, know thou thyself, and abide in that state.”
