Ah, that time I decided to review the Montreal Casino’s tribute to the art of film, which coincidentally became my two-hundredth comic strip for The Montreal Mirror. “What better way to celebrate my two-hundredth Motion Picture Purgatory,” I opine in my longwinded missive, “than by seeing the whole history of film encapsulated into a song & dance routine adjusted for feel-good familiarity, reaffirming my belief that there’s about as much chance at getting the general public to genuinely give a rat’s ass about ‘the cinema,’ let alone this strip, than there is of me winning big at the slots!” The heading for this Motion Picture Purgatory which originally appeared in a 2002 issue of The Montreal Mirror was “If you think you can control the outcome, you’re putting yourself at risk! -Loto-Québec brochure.” As always; the original art’s for sale @ 100 bucks.
