I tossed and turned through three chapters of an epic Russian novel last night. Or so it felt as a constant stream of characters made their way past the stringent casting couch and into the deepest reaches of my dreams. There was scandal, there was mystery, there was even a guest performance by Helen Mirren, who may well win an Oscar for her portrayal of a drug ravaged Geisha girl. Yes, it was a fitful night. Fitful. But it’s nothing that a double shot of expresso and a quick skim of the Post can’t fix. [illustration by Nathan Fox]
