In a passage in The Reenactments, Nick Flynn recounts introducing Robert De Niro to his father. De Niro played Nick’s father Jonathan in a recent movie based on Nick’s 2004 memoir, Another Bullshit Night in Suck City. Jonathan doesn’t seem all that impressed by his movie double. He goes off into some of his own tales, then later asks De Niro, “So you do a little acting?” The first time Nick tries to show his father the finished movie, Jonathan falls asleep.
