The 1969 movie “Z” by Costa-Gavras depicts the assassination of a popular Greek politician at a campaign rally and the investigation that followed it. The investigating magistrate serially interrogates buffoonish military officers who describe the assassin jumping out of the crowd, “lithe and fierce, like a tiger.” The identical description provided by each of the officers is a key to the unravelling of the assassination conspiracy in which they were participants.
Yesterday a reader forwarded us a link to an extremely interesting photographic study at Obsidian Order of an apparent car bomb exploding outside a polling station in Iraq: ‘A very special effect.” My guess is that the photographers would describe the bomber running from the scene “lithe and fierce, like a tiger.”
