Yet another Iron Man post

Yes - I know, but rozk points out an impressive little detail that even escaped the classical music buff sitting next to me.

(I still don't think it's a great film - but it's a clever film, and that's a rarity these days)

(and did anyone else notice the director playing the other member of the comic book Iron Man ensemble - Happy Hogan?)

Bloody hell. I missed that. Then again, I know very little Saleri. Nice touch, that.

I did get, and appreciate the Ninth Symphony reference.

Nice that a comic-book movie can actually have subtext! Even if it's one I'd never have caught*. Although I certainly understood the "Ninth Symphony" comment, even if mainly from context. It means someone thought about this a lot more than "let's have a lot of explosions!1!!!" I bet you won't find anything like that in, say, the Transformers movie.

*Actually, I'm more impressed that it has something subtle enough that I wouldn't catch it.
