A reader sez:
This weekend I saw the French Film “Brotherhood of the Wolf” which takes place 30 years before the French Revolution. I do not know if you ever reviewed this as you comment on other movies but it contains what I think you refer to as a “Lidless Eye” plot which is foiled partly by secret agents of the Pope (one of whom poses as/is a murderous Italian courtesan). Seems like a lot of fodder for you. Like all French movies could have been edited about a half hour shorter.
Haven’t seen it, but sounds as Byzantine as “Dead Again” (a film I highly recommend, if you enjoy Byzantine plots as I do). I’ll try to catch it sometime.
