I was struck by the Wallace Stevens stanza while perusing Real Hartford's latest photos of the Asylum Hill neighborhood.
O thin men of Haddam,
Why do you imagine golden birds?
Do you not see how the blackbird
Walks around the feet
Of the women about you?
The movie also seemed to imply that you could walk all of Hartford in a leisurely afternoon. I would be interested in seeing a route of the scenes on a Google map and with calculated mileage. There is a difference between suspending disbelief and believing in the absolutely ridiculous. I imagine that the local audience is supposed to take the exhaustive walking tour of Hartford as an inside joke.
Dario - I expect this will give you some inspiration. Perhaps a guest post?
