What if Marylin Monroe, Albert Einstein, Joe Dimaggio and Senator
McCarthy were to come together in a mind-bending evening of relativity?
This delightful roman à clef never uses the actual names of the
characters it so thinly veils and scathingly exposes not only for the
individuals they must have been, but also for what they came to
represent over time. If you are confused by allegory, or if you like
your movies served up predigested and mushy, you won't like this film.
It is a demanding opus that rewards on many levels the viewer with the
intelligence to appreciate it.
Dropping, for the time being, the rigorous avoidance of using the real
names of the characters, we see Einstein, about to deliver a pacifist
speech to a United Nations hell-bent for nukes, being visited by
Marylin Monroe, after filming the notorious Seven Year Itch scene that
some say led to the end of her marriage with Joe Dimaggio. They have a
lovely interplay in which Einstein stumbles with suitable professorial
clumsiness around the innocence of perhaps the greatest sex symbol of
Enter Senator McCarthy who thinks Einstein is a Red. He is determined
to extract Einstein's assurance that he will support the activities of
the House Unamerican Activities Committee while delivering the ultimate
weapon in the name of peace. Add Joe, a surprisingly fragile and
vulnerable person perhaps not perfectly cast as Gary Busey, who hates
Marylin's exhibitionism and believes Einstein has become her lover,
even though Marylin only wants to show Einstein that she understands
the Special Theory of Relativity.
But there's more.
Just like each of us, these characters have their deepest fears, which
they reveal one by one in haunting flashbacks. It is these weaknesses,
ultimately, that lend humanity to figures we cannot help but see almost
exclusively in the abstract today. Finally, we see the shocking terror
of Einstein's vision, and the statement of the movie becomes clear. It
is a powerful and memorable moment.
Insignificance is one of my top five movies of all time. It is utterly
