  1. Brilliant dissection of Monk’s dueling superiority/inferiority complexes. Bravo for these razor-sharp insights.

  2. So Wiley switches from wanting to film Monk’s pseudonymously written
    “fake book” (which was his intent at their abbreviated lunch meeting, when he thought the book was real) to instead wanting to make a movie about the REAL Monk and his escapades in writing that fake book?

    Because clearly Wiley knows the book is “fake” by the time he’s meeting with Monk on the movie set at the end of the film.
