Steal Compass, Drive North, Disappear
Minimal and moving life awakening
This article is from 2011.
Against a minimalist background of black walls and a scattering of blank chalkboards, Rachel Blackman unravels the story of Martin Charon, philandering video artist, university professor and father of two. Through the four women in his life (each flawlessly portrayed by Blackman, as is Martin) we learn about a man so in love with himself that he has forgotten who and what are truly important to him. Witty, insightful and heartbreaking.
