Tarnation part 2
Still thinking about this movie. I've decided now that maybe it's not a matter of narcissism or dishonesty, maybe it's a matter of creating his own version of what happened to his family - a form of myth-making. And myth-making doesn't have room for the term "dishonesty" in it - by definition, it's something created or invented.
So, in a very Wu-Li way, he's inventing himself and his story through the movie. And I'm cool with that (not that he cares!)
