Eight years have passed since the infamous Henry Fool fled the country, abandoning his wife, Fay Grim, and their son, Ned. Fay's brother, Simon, the reviled garbageman/poet, is serving a 10-year sentence for aiding Henry's escape. Simon now believes that Henry's eight-volume opus, «Confession», is not the self-indulgent, literary drivel he supposed but a coded report on the clandestine activities of several spy organizations. Hal Hartley's smartest, funniest film in many years, Fay Grim picks up where Henry Fool leaves off. Littered with Hartley's characteristic cadences and signature tone, Fay Grim simply asks, can a neurotic mom from Queens elude spy agencies and Afghan terrorists before her ex-husband, who isn't dead, gets killed? (John Nein)
