The only film I haven't seen

From what I've seen, in Spider the frame of mind makes subtle reference — especially through Peter Suschitzky's cinematography — to the style of Il deserto rosso. And just as in that film, it seems that every futile attempt to connect with the outside world indicates the inability to define a personal identity. Am I Spider?
from East End, a new story by Enrique Vila-Matas.
