Frank and Carlos meet on the train tracks of the world.
Carlos has escaped from prison...France?
Two old classmates from Patrice Lumumba catch up.
What is with these groups? Terrorist groups?
After Mustang Ranch, Frank and Tony continue driving through the night three time zones to Scarsdale, NY.
Red eyed, they crash at Billy's pad...then off to the Yonkers Trot.
The boys cash in, enough for two tickets to London.
Mr. Blue gives Mr. Green a gift - a jar of pennies numbered 1 to 31.
Mr. Green must "solve the jar" - or else.
"Find Texas Red - don't plan, don't think - just find him."
In London, Tony invites Frank to a party in Highgate.
A mansion, a seance, a ballroom, and an arboretum.
That is where Frank meets Ilich - again.
Spooning rounds of Stilton cheese on their posh buckled shoes,
Then drunk, singing The Internationale around the gravestone of Karl Marx.
Lawrence Johns and Paul Flum combine to present the Western Way Institute "manifesto" to the future...to the future successor of Homo Sapiens, named "Homo Sagax" after Cicero.
The manifesto presents five points:
This is the sequel to I'M CARLOS NOW.
Will is Reality!
The series opens with Carlos on the phone "Can't be bothered now, I have banks to blow up, Governments to topple" etc...a very important man, says he. We next see a young lady working for the FBI who warns her field agent Mr. Blue ' watch yourself...there is a lot of magic in this operation"
Then things go sideways. We see shots of what appears to be engine, motor, brakes, etc...various parts of a car, perhaps at a chop shop? Perhaps being wired with explosives? Unsure the make or model or where in the timeline this fits....
The conversation over this is between Mr. Blue (aforementioned) and Mr. Green who has been hired to find Texas Red, a reclusive artist. Mr. Blue is very condescending, but Mr. Green assures that he will find Texas Red within a week and will update Mr. Blue on his progress within 24 hours.
The two voices sound suspiciously "high pitch" - as if the identity is being hid to the viewers. These two seem to be talking over the din of a restaurant, and is there first face-to-face meeting - for what that is worth.
I'M CARLOS NOW is loosely based on The Prisoner, James Bond, with a dose of David Lynch and theological references to Nietzsche and Schopenhauer. A drama, a comedy, it is a high art - an absurdity.
"An idea within chaos" - Plato
"You degenerate in exile. You collapse into barbaric superstitions of self" - Socrates
"I bet those nails are a couple hundred years old" - Texas Red
