2020.09.26 23:25 Nalkarj Have any Christie fans here seen “The Last of Sheila”?

It was on TV where I am last night and I caught the last few minutes. Has long been one of my favorite movies—I was chuckling constantly throughout the 10 mins. or so that I watched.
It’s a hyper-complex murder-mystery, written by the wonderfully odd couple of Stephen Sondheim and Anthony Perkins, with an unbeatable cast (James Mason, Dyan Cannon, James Coburn, etc.) and an unmatchable setting (the French Riviera). The writing is entertainingly bitchy-witty throughout, with some of the best dialogue I’ve ever heard. The mystery itself is part-Christie and part-Ellery Queen, and even if you guess the murderer correctly Sondheim and Perkins have a bunch of surprises up their sleeve.
It’s just great. Why it isn’t better known is beyond me, especially when movie-whodunits are making a comeback (Murder on the Orient Express, Murder Mystery, Knives Out, Death on the Nile) and Clue is a cult-classic.

“You can choose your friends but you can't choose your family.
They're still kin to you no matter whether you acknowledge them or not,
and it makes you look right silly when you don't.”
-- Atticus Finch
Family and choice. These are the rocks upon which Investigations 2 builds its church. Woven throughout the narrative are the threads of these two concepts, stitched into the hearts of these characters and the bonds they form. “The bond between a parent and child” is a phrase mentioned several times in The Grand Turnabout and it’s a narrative device that is employed time and time again over the course of the story.
Right off the bat, we have the relationship between Miles and Gregory Edgeworth, our two protagonists. Gregory’s methodical, logic-based pursuit of the truth mirrors that of the new-and-improved Edgeworth, no longer shackled by the bonds of a von Karma-esque prosecutor. Whilst their fates do not allow their bond to be expressed directly, we have the avuncular Raymond Shields to bridge the gap between the two. In doing so, Ray’s sentimental influence rubs off on Miles, teaching him to forge a stronger connection with the people he fights to save. By the end of the story, Miles is no longer a carbon-copy of his father. He is a hybrid of Gregory’s logic and Raymond’s loyalty, making him a stronger champion in pursuit of justice and the truth.
Next, we have Kay Faraday and Dick Gumshoe. Bound to Miles through circumstance, they, along with Ray, form a tight familial unit through the events of the game. You have the stiff, uptight parental figure of Miles coupled with Raymond’s laidback, easygoing disposition as the two look over their scattershot foster children, Kay and Gumshoe. When one of their own is going through it, they unite to help her recover her memories. When Miles abandons his journey on the prosecutor’s path, Gumshoe takes it as an abandonment of their family, running away for the remainder of the case.
Then we have the characters with severed parental bonds: Katherine and Jeff, the Langs, Knightley and Dover, the von Karmas, Sebastian and Blaise. Through losing their father figures, these children all resolved to either defy or avenge their fathers. So tied up in the past are they that these characters can forget to live, to forge their own paths.
Toatali’s Ace Attorney blog makes some fascinating observations about the themes, which I will reference here: If there is any mission statement to be gleaned from Investigations 2, it seems to be “you cannot outrun your family”. Even after 18 years, Kate cannot stop herself from luring Gustavia into the open, so bound is she to Jeff. His honour tarnished and his glory stripped, Lang wallows in the failings of his father, crouched over the body of the “president” who brought down the House of Lang. Knightley, forever doomed to seek approval from his authority figures - kidnapping Simon to appease his father, planning the staged assassination to prove his worth to “Huang” - could never step out from the shadow of mediocrity. Franziska, swept up in the glory of her surname and the prestige it carries in the legal world, fights for honour and for pride, unable to come to terms with her father’s failings until the climax of The Forgotten Turnabout. Even then, she will always be known to the world as “Franziska von Karma, daughter of Manfred.”
Sebastian and Blaise is where this theme becomes unstuck, as the conclusion of the game seems to indicate that Sebastian successfully turns his back on his father’s legacy. While this works as a polar opposite to Franziska and a thematic complement to Miles, it doesn’t quite wash with the rest of the tale we’re being told. “You cannot outrun your family”, yet Sebastian does exactly this at the conclusion of his arc. So, if anything, this is less the “theme” of the game and more a recurring motif, albeit somewhat muddled by the resolution of Sebastian’s story. But that’s neither here nor there. “You cannot choose your family” is a prominent motif permeating the narrative of Investigations 2, as evidenced by the many familial bonds explored over the duration of the game.
At the center of all this is Simon Keyes.

1. Chosen family

“If the family you came from sucked, make up a new one.
Look at all the people there are to choose from.
If the family you are in hurts, get on the bus.
Like now.”
-- Lidia Yuknavitch
Simon Keyes, as we first meet him in The Imprisoned Turnabout, is a straightforward defendant. Were it not for the fact that we aren’t playing a Phoenix Wright title, his would be like any other case for the titular defence attorney. We stumble across a murder, meet our defendant, investigate and then draw conclusions to prove their innocence. The difference between Simon and a defendant like Will Powers is that we barely spend any time with Simon. Compared to Phoenix’s multiple visits to the detention centecourtroom lobby conversations with his defendants, Simon gets about as much screen time in this case as Max Galactica. This wouldn’t be so much of a problem if the game didn’t insist that we’ve formed a unique bond with Simon and that we can’t let him down. To be honest, I don’t see Edgeworth form any more of a friendship with Simon than with Rhoda Teneiro. Instead, the game insists that we’ve established this connection through the 2 short chats we have with him and then call it a day.
What’s incredibly effective about Simon’s introduction, along with all his pre-reveal appearances, is the use of music. In his first scene alone, we hear 3 different themes - “Strange People”, “Restless People” and “Lamenting People.” Sure, they match his behaviour from mood-to-mood, but the game is saying much more than that. Not even the soundtrack can pin this guy’s personality down. Of course, he gets his own character theme at the end, “The Man Who Masterminds the Game”, which I’m decidedly not a huge fan of (it sounds like a dull interpretation of Layton villain Don Paolo), but that’s beside the point. Simon’s introduction is some terrific foreshadowing.
Next, we have the family he forms with Miles, Kay and Ray. Or rather, the family we’re told he forms. I never particularly felt that the relationship we formed with Simon was greater than other defendants and that’s a problem. If the eleventh-hour betrayal is to truly hit home, we need to love him the same way we love Bobby Fulbright pre-reveal. As it is, Simon is less lovable than defendant-Trucy, with a shade of Ron DeLite hysterics. Despite this fumble, we can still see that the game has given Simon a chosen family: our protagonists, welcoming yet another kooky character into their dysfunctional family.
I very much enjoy The Imprisoned Turnabout. It’s my second-favourite case. The setting, the story, the carry-over from Turnabout Target, the characters, it gets top marks for me. Simon is not a character that comes to mind when I think of this case. Oh he’s good, certainly, but this case shines because of Sirhan Dogen, Jay Elbird, Frank Sahwit, Patricia Roland and Sebastian Debeste. Whether they’re chewing the scenery or sowing the seeds for a larger plot, these guys give this cold prison its proudly beating heart.
Some cool sprite work put into Simon is his whole monkey persona. For one, there’s the pun: “SiMON KEYes.” Then you have the sprites where he covers his hands, mouth and eyes. Referencing the Japanese principle of the three wise monkeys, “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”, this is a cool bit of consistency to bring the monkey theme home. While this is a cool “woah, so deep” moment on a replay, I have to wonder “what’s the point?” Simon poses as “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” because - get this - he’s evil. I’m a little unsure of why a monkey theme is even his thing, but the game has chosen to roll with it and I’ll give them points for sticking to their guns.
The chosen family aspect of Simon’s role in Imprisoned is an error I can’t get past when discussing him, however. We see Simon maybe three times in the entire case and none of the interactions with him suggest that his ties to the heroes are any stronger than the average defendant. This plot point is clearly more interested in delving deeper into the “Edgeworth defence attorney” conflict than establishing any kind of meaningful kinship with Simon. Still, I won’t deny that using an innocent-turned-guilty defendant is some great stuff for Edgeworth’s defence attorney plot. While Edgeworth, at the end of the game, says that he will remain a prosecutor to fight for people like Simon Keyes, his decision has that whiff of “well I tried defending somebody and he turned out to be guilty, so fuck that defence attorney life” to it, which is perhaps not what the writers intended.
It all ties back to family and choice, though. Edgeworth adopts Simon into his ragtag “family” for Imprisoned as he faces the choice regarding which side of the law to pursue. It’s representative of the larger story being told here, which leads to my next point.

2. Too big to fail

“Bit by bit, putting it together.
Piece by piece - only way to make a work of art.
Every moment makes a contribution, every little detail plays a part.
Having just a vision's no solution, everything depends on execution:
Putting it together - that's what counts!”
-- Stephen Sondheim
One thing I’ve always admired about the Investigations spin-offs is their desire to tell a single story. Yes, they’re episodic and yes, not all characters are relevant, but both games lead to a single revelation: everything is connected. Trials & Tribulations got close. Dual Destinies got even closer. But it’s the Yamazaki spin-offs that achieve this grand tapestry. Sure, if you asked somebody if they prefer the smuggling conspiracy or the revenge plot, you’d likely have a decisive majority for the latter. Nevertheless, the games introduce their plots at the outset and work their way to their conclusions through each of the 5 cases. They swing big and they swing hard. I find it difficult to fault the games for their grand ambition. Whether they win big or lose big, the Investigations series has lofty goals and it is thrilling to see the writers aim high.
The issue that comes with this interconnected narrative is the end result of the “putting it together”: the vision of it all. No doubt, this game is filled with rich character moments, devilish twists and a nice dash of fan service. Taken in isolation, these events make for some compelling and fascinating moments. But they are exactly that: a moment. As The Grand Turnabout barrels towards its conclusion, you can start to feel the story tie itself in knots as it works to have everything linked together. Simon’s revenge plot is an incredibly impressive thing to look upon at face value, but I cannot deny that the journey we take has more than a few rotten contrivances. A last-minute revelation that an eight-year-old Simon somehow managed to “mistake” Dover for his father has the unmistakable scent of writer’s block. Not only does it utilise very selective amnesia in order to handwave the entire Gustavia case from his revenge plan, it also taints his scheme against Knightley as a result of contrived storytelling.
I must admit, I had not played the game in over 5 years until very recently. A replay was an enriching experience, reinforcing my beliefs of some characters, challenging them of others and approaching the storytelling with an older, keener eye. Critical thinking of your favourite game in the series can be challenging, but taking the time to think through the writer’s logic, I begin to see the cracks in the story’s tapestry. One such thought process went as follows:
The writers conceived this notion of Simon and Knightley, childhood friends. Later, Simon wants to take revenge on President “Huang.” However, Simon cannot be caught in case 1, so somebody else needs to be the culprit. Why not Knightley? But wait! Simon and Knightley are friends; there’s no way he would set up his friend. Well, what if they weren’t friends anymore? Great! How do you do that? Let’s have Simon think that his father was killed by Knightley’s. Hang on, how does Simon mix up his father and Knightley’s? Oh, so Knightley ties him up and he gets amnesia over the trauma. Wait a minute... so, Simon’s going to eventually remember that Knightley tied him up and that one of their fathers died, but he’s not going to be able to remember which of these two guys was his father? Well, the game has to have the father thing. Simon has to think his father’s dead, or else we have to incorporate case 3 into his revenge plot. Hmm, that’s a lot of work. Slap him with a selective amnesia sticker and call it a day.
Art isn’t easy, but it certainly doesn’t need to be made this hard. The notion that Simon couldn’t remember his name or his father, yet could recognise Dogen in an instant is laughable, but it’s just one of several contrivances required for this story to work in a gameplay context. My issue with a plot point such as this is that it reaches too hard to tie everything back to Simon. This is emblematic of a larger problem with the attempt to relate all the cases to the mastermind’s scheme. There is frequently a much simpler explanation available, but the storytelling gets too greedy in its desire to present this seamless story, exposing its midriff while doing so. In doing so, the narrative gets knotted up and we have issues like this.
This leads me to a very large gripe I have with Simon: his plan.

3. Let’s talk about the mastermind’s plan

“The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.”
-- Robert Burns
Often, when I see a player who has recently finished Investigations 2 discuss the game, they give a compliment that is doled out a lot: “the mastermind’s plan was genius.”
Reading the entirety of his scheme in the context of the story, I’m utterly stumped. What on earth was so masterful?
The plan, at its heart, goes like this: resenting Horace Knightley for allowing Simon’s “father” to be killed, Keyes wanted revenge on Knightley. In addition to that, he wanted to take revenge on “President Huang”, Patricia Roland and Blaise Debeste for attempting to betray the man who saved his life, Sirhan Dogen.
The first part of his plan involved the assassination attempt on “Huang’s” life. He hired Shelly de Killer to take him out. Simon only planned to implicate Knightley in the assassination after de Killer’s first attempt failed. Thus, Simon convinced Knightley to stage a fake assassination to boost “Huang’s” poor reputation, while having de Killer take him out for real. This would allow Simon to get revenge on both “Huang” and Knightley.
So Simon’s original plan was only meant to get rid of “Huang”, without implicating Knightley. Knowing what we know about Turnabout Target, I of course understand why Simon’s plan wasn’t written to have Knightley take the fall in the first place - it was because de Killer’s first attempt had failed and he was going to try again during the speech. The problem is that de Killer’s first failed attempt only exists because the writers needed Simon to later get Knightley involved in his plot. It’s another case of the story overstretching itself, when a much simpler solution (have Simon plan to implicate Knightley from the get-go) is sitting right there. Investigations 2 has a thrilling minute-by-minute story, but contrivances like this undermine the greater story being told.
Let’s move on to the next case. Simon visits Knightley in prison to drop off a gift. The gift, of course, is Knightley’s chessboard containing a chisel. We get treated to the following final exchange between Simon and Knightley:
Simon: Oh yeah. I've left something special inside that chessboard for you. You should check it out later.
Knightley: Something special? I'm not quite sure what you mean, but thanks. I owe you one, Simon.
Simon: ......If only you hadn't stopped me 18 years ago... ...it wouldn't have had... to come to this.
Knightley: Huh? Did you say something?
Simon: Nope. Not a word. ......Goodbye, Horace.
This whole “aside, but not really an aside” is campy, melodramatic nonsense but the game plays it dead serious. If Simon were an over-the-top villain this would make sense, but he isn’t and it doesn’t. Knightley receiving the chessboard, the key to Simon’s plan, is hardly the moment to start monologuing, but it becomes one. The game thinks it can pull a fast one on us because the audience already knows Simon is evil by this point, but I see right through you, you sneaky devils!
A far bigger problem I have with this part of the plan is the method used to implicate Patricia Roland. After Dogen’s arrival in prison, he began threatening Roland and drove her to extreme paranoia. She believed that he planned to send henchmen to kill her. This makes sense because Dogen and Roland are both aware of their involvement in the SS-5 Incident. What doesn’t make sense is how Simon knows all of this. Simon’s only contact with Dogen is correspondence chess, where he pretends to be Knightley. There is no feasible reason for why he should even know that Dogen has been threatening Roland, let alone that she is specifically paranoid he will send somebody to kill her. Yet that is the entire crux of Simon’s plan in The Imprisoned Turnabout. Roland interrogates Knightley with the chessboard on him, she finds the chisel, panics and thinks he is one of Dogen’s agents and murders him. This whole section of the plot, as it’s explained in The Grand Turnabout, sees the game rewrite its own history to make Simon’s plan fit.
Simon is subsequently arrested, which he hadn’t anticipated. Lucky for him, Edgeworth is on the scene to save the day. Very lucky, in fact, because Simon’s mastermind plan would have fallen at the second hurdle had Miles not been around. It annoys me that Simon’s plan at this point only works because Edgeworth is on the scene. You know what I would’ve much preferred? I would’ve liked Simon to be in Nicole Swift’s role in Turnabout Target. Introduce him in the first case and just alter his history with Knightley so their relationship is more acrimonious. Knightley accuses Simon in case 1, Edgeworth is forced to clear his name. This leads into case 2, where Simon becomes an official defendant. By doing this, we have a whole extra case to get to know Simon and even like him. It would make the twist in The Grand Turnabout much more impactful if we’ve spent half the game protecting and defending Simon against all these murderers only to find out he plotted to get them all arrested.
Simon has no involvement with The Inherited Turnabout, aside from a periphery event. This is fine, because that story is far more focused on the Miles/Gregory dichotomy. In regards to the mastermind’s plot, I can’t help but feel that Simon’s selective amnesia regarding his father is employed purely so that the writers can gloss over Simon not incorporating Gustavia’s arrest into his scheme. That said, Inherited introduces the best part of Simon: the dynamic with his father and the introduction of his Dickensian backstory. Here, the game does a great job of introducing the “two children” plot point without drawing too much attention to it early. I can’t speak for others but I hadn’t expected that plot point to resurface in the final case, so it succeeds in my eyes.
Inherited also drives home this “family/choice” motif that permeates the narrative. Gustavia, in his selfish pursuit for success and glory, abandons everyone that had ever mattered to him. Unwittingly, Simon grows up to be the spitting image of his father, abandoning everyone that ever mattered to him in his selfish pursuit for revenge and retribution. The fact that half his motivation for revenge is misguided is a lovely bit of dramatic irony in the final confrontation. While attempting to outrun the fate that befell his “father”, Simon became his true father.
The Forgotten Turnabout, my all-time favourite case, is next and it is masterfully written. A common (and understandable) complaint of Investigations 2 is its pacing. Cases 5, 3 and (I hate to say it) 2 are all hampered by “here’s what you missed on Ace Attorney” section recap dialogue and stiff dialogue that turns characters into narrative mouthpieces.
That’s nowhere to be found in Forgotten. Packing series-spanning revelations, heel turns, fan service, series-wide references and fresh character beats into a tight 6 hours, this is the peak of modern Ace Attorney writing in my eyes. It really feels like a final case, so much so that if not for the post-credits stinger with Shelly de Killer, the story could have ended and I would have been satisfied with the game I got.
Simon Keyes’ plan retroactively threatens to ruin the murder of this case.
I let Jill in on Blaise’s secrets and I let Blaise in on Jill’s secrets,” he taunts. His choice to warn Blaise of Crane’s intent to murder him is quite baffling to me. If he doesn’t warn Blaise, she murders Blaise and is subsequently arrested for the murder. As it is, he warns Blaise and she is murdered, and Blaise is subsequently arrested. Simon’s choice to do this makes him a less interesting villain. If he had a “don’t get innocent people killed” mentality which led to Jill being the culprit of Forgotten, I would have been much more invested in taking him down for conspiring to lead an innocent woman to murder in her pursuit of justice.
As it is, Forgotten is a result of his scheme, which secretly features the murder of the following case: the president’s body double, “Huang.”
The plan goes like this: drawing Kay Faraday to Gourd Lake, Simon drugs her and transports her to the roof of the Grand Tower via his hot air balloon. Upon his arrival, he stumbles upon the body double. “Huang” recognises the adult Simon Keyes for some reason (?) and opens fire on the balloon (??). The balloon lowers and Simon crushes the double. So thanks to coincidence, Simon managed to take revenge on the final member of the SS-5 conspiracy. Simon then drops the unconscious Kay off at the roof and rides the balloon away with the body of “Huang.” Seconds (literally, seconds, since Lotta has a photo of the moment) after Simon flies off the roof, a wounded Jill Crane emerges from the storeroom and drops dead in front of Kay.
This “secret murder” that happens during the events of Forgotten pushes the credibility of Simon’s plan to the limit. The sheer number of characters who were in the area - “Huang”, Courtney, Kay, Crane, Lotta, Blaise - are all mere seconds away from coming across each other and it all feels too silly to me. The Grand Turnabout plays fast and loose with the continuity of Forgotten and it makes Simon’s plan weaker as a result.
Now we come to it: The Grand Turnabout. In this case, Simon kidnaps a child and practises for the circus.
The double kidnapping plot is very strange upon a replay. Essentially, both Simon and Blaise planned to kidnap John Marsh and blackmail Courtney into giving Patricia Roland a guilty and not guilty verdict, respectively. Simon successfully kidnapped John, while Blaise’s men mistakenly kidnapped Sebastian. Nevertheless, Courtney was only blackmailed by Blaise, since she was clearly delaying the trial to ensure she wouldn’t have to give Roland a not guilty. After learning about this, Simon chooses not to contact Courtney with proof that he has John to ensure a guilty verdict, because Simon is a mastermind, you guys! He’s so much of a mastermind that instead of doing that, he sits back and relies on Edgeworth to save the day at the last second, because that is what a mastermind does.
Anyway, after Edgeworth saves the day, Simon goes back to the circus until the final scene when we discover everything about his plot.
So that’s the mastermind’s plan. From what I gather of it, Simon Keyes’ plan was needlessly convoluted, luck-based and tremendously contrived, all in service of giving us a rollicking good story and a strong set-up for a final villain.

4. Sad clown

“You are not a clown. You are the entire circus.”
-- NOT Miles Edgeworth
When compared to the other final villains of the series, Simon Keyes comes off as a true underdog of a culprit. Having taken down a prosecution god, a police chief and a queen, “some poor sap from the circus” is a much humbler status for a Big Bad. In a clever subversion of the Ace Attorney formula, the scrappy underdog gets taken down by the powerful authority of the protagonist. Taking down Manfred von Karma was fun because we were a novice attorney up against the complete opposite. Watching Dahlia Hawthorne be exorcised into oblivion is satisfying because we’re doing it to save ourself and our friends from the pain she’s caused.
Breaking down Simon Keyes is not fun. He’s not some tyrannical evil that is hell-bent on destroying our friends. He has his one big scheme to get revenge for himself and that’s all. Less fun is the fact that his desire for retribution is somewhat warranted. The people he sought to destroy were some of the very worst humanity has to offer. I’m not trying to start an “is Simon actually a hero” debate here, though others are welcome to discuss that idea. What I mean to say is that we’re asked to take down this kid who has gone through the very worst in life and somehow have a happy ending all wrapped up with feel-good moments between our heroes. The tonal inconsistency here is off the charts, in stark comparison to the bittersweet, beautifully struck tone of the conclusion to Trials & Tribulations.
And Investigations 2 knows this. Going into the circus sequence, these writers are fully aware that we are going to run into this conflict of arresting a boy who did what he had to in order to survive. But there are ways around this, certainly. They could take a page from the Trials & Tribulations playbook and have a post-breakdown moment where the characters stop and ask themselves “was justice truly served today?” What a moment that is for Phoenix, for him to ask that in what was supposed to be his final outing as a lawyer. Surely the writers could take a moment to have us grapple with Simon’s actions versus his motivations.
Nope, that’s too challenging. Instead, we get treated to Simon Keyes, cackling villain, stripped of all the nuance that we’ve just spent the last 2 hours uncovering in his past. The clash between Simon Keyes the backstory and Simon Keyes the final villain is exactly what gave me that dissatisfied feeling when I first played The Grand Turnabout. Some players reach Simon’s reveal moment and think “No way… that guy?!” Myself, I am part of the “Why… that guy?” crowd. We’ve had this deplorable tale of a young boy who was utterly failed by every authority figure he met. Why, then, could the team not think of anything more to do with his final confrontation than turn him into a case 1-tier villain in terms of subtlety?

5. The final confrontation: lessons learned from Quercus Alba

“It's not where you start, it's where you finish;
It's not how you go, it's how you land.”
-- Dorothy Fields
In a strange overcorrection from Turnabout Ablaze, the final confrontation with Simon is remarkably short. Compared to Alba’s frankly overstuffed confrontation, complete with mid-testimony save point, Simon’s one-and-done segment feels almost anti-climactic. It’s a point of contention amongst discussion of The Grand Turnabout. Some feel that is perfectly fine and an appropriately grand setting with every main character inside the tent of the Berry Big Circus reaching the truth together. Others criticise the janky pacing, each testimony littered with exposition in between, for the sake of tying everything together neatly. This isn’t exactly new to the series. There have certainly been cases where the endless sea of exposition comes in crashing waves by the climax of a case (Bridge to the Turnabout commits this sin most famously, courtesy of a Godot monologue), but nowhere is it more egregious than the end segment of this case. To summarise, we get:
  • A “feels” sequence, complete with flashback to The Imprisoned Turnabout featuring Simon in his good-guy persona, to reinforce to the audience how manipulative Simon is
  • Simon’s first testimony
  • Ema and Regina interrupting to give us some crucial evidence at the eleventh hour
  • Simon’s extended monologue detailing his experience of the IS-7 Incident
  • Simon’s realisation that Gustavia is his father, not Dover
  • Simon’s extended monologue detailing his experience of the SS-5 Incident
  • Simon detailing his role in setting up Knightley for Turnabout Target
  • Simon’s second testimony
There are approximately 45 minutes of evidence-revealing and exposition that grinds the gameplay to a halt, because the story had a truckload of information to give to us that it couldn’t figure out how to deliver earlier. It’s less than 15 minutes between his second and third and then his final testimony comes 5 minutes later.
The thing to understand here is that without that 45-minute block of story, where we essentially catch Simon up on the same events we’ve only just solved, the final confrontation is woefully short. Were “the story of Simon” broken up into smaller segments, the storytelling would feel a lot less clunky.
You know what really suffers in the final confrontation? Simon’s presence in the game, built up to that point. The entire previous segment of the game was spent learning about his role in both the IS-7 and SS-5 Incident and it’s incredibly harrowing stuff. A child, locked up to die with his best friend, becomes an orphan. As a teenager, he helps the man who saved his life narrowly escape the law, resulting in a life of homelessness and hiding from the law. Thus, we learn that he has grown up to be a secret villain, having a hand in the cases we’ve been investigating all game. In fact, you even came across him earlier, having been manipulated into believing his “nice man” persona. Naturally, with a backstory this fleshed-out and nuanced, you’d expect this man to be a figure of immense complexity, clever manipulation and great difficulty to pin down.
No, he just lets his hair down and does a bunch of insane “evil guy” laughs to let you know that he’s really super evil and you’ve gotta beat him, guys!
There’s no other word for it: this is lame. It’s sloppy, childish and flat-out disappointing, but worst of all, it’s lame.
Simon Keyes is touted to be this master of manipulation and deceit. He is apparently able to manipulate people’s weak spots without them even realising it. Except we never actually see him do this. The game just tells us he’s this manipulative bastard. There’s this little moment in the circus tent where he tries to guilt-trip Kay and she starts doubting herself. This lasts about 5 seconds before Edgeworth objects and calls him out for it. Whoops, there goes his manipulative skills.
You know what would’ve been a much better final confrontation? Having a Logic Chess battle with Simon. The man who not only plays chess, but thought himself the chessmaster of the whole story never actually plays Logic Chess with Edgeworth. Begin the Logic Chess, have Edgeworth start chipping away at Simon’s weak spots through observing him. Get deep into the Logic Chess, then realise he’s been playing you this whole time and that you’re no closer to catching him. Then, have all Edgeworth’s allies start to lose faith in his conclusions. His logic’s been wrong before, he’s even admitted his conclusions were misled in the preceding cases. Why not have them lose their conviction in his conclusions, take it to the point where Ray challenges Miles about the path he’s walking? That would be a terrific tie-in to the game’s intended idea of Edgeworth deciding which path he wants to walk.
But instead, we get a short interaction of Simon gaslighting Kay before Edgeworth shuts it down and we get stupid clown man. His final breakdown where all the animals break loose and kick his ass is over-the-top stupid. It would be a funny breakdown if he wasn’t supposed to be portrayed as this serious evil mastermind. But he is, so the silly breakdown just comes off as a lack of restraint.
I like Simon Keyes, the complex character. I really like Simon Keyes, the tragic victim. I love Simon Keyes, the conceptual mastermind culprit. I do not like Simon Keyes, the cackling villain with a hamfisted plan.

6. Q&A Time!

"Yeah, I have a lot of questions. Number one: how dare you?"
-- Kelly Kapoor
Q: Stop revive-baiting, Charlie; why else would you cut Simon?
A: A terrific question. Allow me to present my partial ranking of the remaining characters:
31: Uendo Toneido
32: The Judge
33: Jake Marshall
34: Katherine Hall
35: Simon Keyes
36: [Un-nominated character]
37: [Saved character]
38: Marlon Rimes
39: [Un-nominated character)
40: Tahrust Inmee [Unable to cut]
41: Aura Blackquill
Simply put, of the remaining choices in the cutting pool, Simon is my lowest. Whilst I think he is a good character, I don’t have any great desire to see him in the final round. The reality is he will likely be revived and coast to the finish line. Knowing this, I will at least be content with the fact that I made the effort sooner rather than later.
Q: So if you expect him to be revived, why are you putting any effort into this cut?
A: Another solid question. For one, if he isn’t revived (haha) this would be the first and last word on Simon Keyes in this rankdown. I think bigger fans of the clown would want a sizable writeup, one worthy of the venerable position he holds as “the mastermind”. Secondly, it’s only fair that I give a justifiable analysis of why I rate Keyes decidedly lower than the vast majority of Investigations 2 fans. If I am going to be doxxed, the user who does it will have to wade through about 25 minutes of reading beforehand.
Q: I’m out of questions. You’ve truly made an unimpeachable Simon Keyes cut. Bravo, Charlie.
A: Thank you, Q. I hope that the rest of the rankers see eye-to-eye with me on this (spoiler alert: they will not).

Conclusion

Simon is a good character saddled with a fascinating backstory, a jaw-dropping concept, a contrived plan, wishy-washy behaviour and a lamentable takedown. Not only is his plan one that requires the story to contort itself to fit, the details run counter to the events of the story. I wouldn’t have spent so much time harping on about his scheme if it weren’t such a huge part of his role. He was a generic defendant in his first appearance, a stock villain in his final scene and a masterful piece of storytelling when he’s offscreen.
I’d much rather focus on the positive aspects of Simon, namely his skills and backstory.
His ability to manipulate others around him in simple ways is good (until it isn’t). It makes him a fitting rival for the cerebral Edgeworth. The game’s undercurrent of fashioning the story into a game of chess that culminates in him being a “mastermind” player is a well-tailored piece of narrative framework. His unquenchable thirst for vengeance is an interesting parallel to Godot, where both characters get somewhat sympathetic treatment during their respective monologue sequences. Whether that revenge is justified, along with the route they took to get there, remains the great debate for fans. It’s somewhat blunted by John Marsh’s utterly rote “revenge bad” speech following Simon’s arrest, but the journey there is a scintillating one.
Conceptually, Simon is strong on paper. The impact of his twist reveal and sprawling influence has always been the surface appeal of the character. I credit the writers for their ambition and the sheer effort it must’ve taken to reach the end result we receive.
But the art of crafting a truly great persona is putting it together with care, subtlety and restraint. Simon on paper is much, much better than he is in execution. The “nice/laidback/helpful character turns out to be the culprit” aspect isn’t a novel one for Ace Attorney (see: Sahwit, Ini, Engarde, Dahlia, Kristoph, Alita, Means, Fulbright, Behleeb, Geiru, Cammy, Alba, Roland), but the real disappointment comes from seeing the manipulative Simon turn into this stock maniacal villain, missing all but the forked tongue in his cackling sprite. It just doesn’t jive with the type of villain he’s been up to this point, measured and calculating. Putting him in a clown getup and throwing in some ridiculous Amara-level animal harem for an overwrought “puppet masteanimal tamer” parallel is the writers not knowing when to stop. Have some restraint; there is no need for overkill. You’ve got a good character on your hands, for God’s sake!
His biggest strength comes from the familial bonds he forms. Starting from his father, Gustavia, who he would do anything for, to his childhood friend, Knightley. It culminates in his defendant role in The Imprisoned Turnabout, where he manipulates Edgeworth and Kay over to his side. The ties he makes with our heroes are severed in the final twist. This betrayal of trust is much more effective than any diabolical plot or mastermind moniker he can come up with, because it ties back to the key concepts of Investigations 2: family and choice.
Simon had a father: Dane Gustavia, a selfish, conniving man who abandoned everyone to reach his goals. Simon’s mistake was to turn his back on the concept of family, choosing to trust no one but himself. Therein lies his most fatal flaw as a mastermind and his greatest strength as a character. By turning his back on all familial bonds, Simon, just like his father, abandoned everyone to reach his goals. “You cannot outrun your family”, yet Simon tried, and he ended up looking right silly for it.

2020.09.11 10:44 Ccaves0127 I looked at every movie that's ever won Best Picture to see if they qualified for the Academy's new diversity rules.

The Academy just released it’s “diversity rules” which are getting everybody in a tizzy. Here they are:
At least one of the lead actors, or a significant supporting actor must be from a historically underrepresented racial or ethnic group.
OR
30% of all actors in secondary or more minor roles must come from one of the following groups:
Women
LGBTQ
An underrepresented racial or ethnic group
The cognitively or physically disabled
OR
The main storyline must focus on an underrepresented group.
Other standards:
Offering both paid internships and training opportunities to those in underrepresented groups
Hiring more than one senior executives from these underrepresented groups at the studio, or at the film company charged with marketing and distributing the film
At least six other crew members from underrepresented groups
OR
At least 30% of crew members from underrepresented groups
I’m also going to use the director as one of the requirements, even though it’s not explicitly mentioned in the Academy’s requirements.
I know some people are upset about this, but I thought that these were pretty generous and easy to meet standards. Please note that I didn’t really read the premises of the films unless I couldn’t find the other requirements first. How do the historical Best Picture winners fare with the new diversity requirements?
Also, because I know chuds in the comments are going to talk about how Jewish people aren’t marginalized, 2019 was the third highest year on record for hate crimes against Jews, according to the Anti-Defamation League.
In the 1st Academy Awards, there were two different categories for the top film:
Outstanding Picture - Wings Clara Bow is billed as a main character, so I’m going to say it meets that one
Unique and Interesting Picture - Sunrise Directed by F.W. Murnau, who was gay. So it meets that requirement.
2nd Academy Awards - The Broadway Melody: Two of the three leads are women, so it meets that requirement.
3rd Academy Awards - All Quiet on the Western Front: Directed by Lewis Milestone, who was Jewish, so it meets that requirement.
4th Academy Awards - Cimarron: Has several lead/significant roles filled by women, so it meets that requirement.
5th Academy Awards - Grand Hotel: Of the five stars on the poster, two are women, so I’d guess it meets that requirement.
6th Academy Awards - Cavalcade: One of the two leads, as well as one of the screenwriters, is a woman, so it meets that requirement.
7th Academy Awards - It Happened One Night: One of the two leads is a woman, so it meets that requirement.
8th Academy Awards - Mutiny on the Bounty: Doesn’t meet any requirement.
9th Academy Awards - The Great Ziegfield: Two of the three leads are women.
10th Academy Awards - The Life of Emile Zola: The star, Paul Muni, was Jewish, so it meets that requirement.
11th Academy Awards - You Can’t Take It With You: One of the leads is a woman, so that requirement is met.
12th Academy Awards - Gone With The Wind: Two of the four leads are women, so that requirement is met.
13th Academy Awards - Rebecca: One of the leads is a woman.
14th Academy Awards - How Green Was My Valley: Two of the leads are women.
15th Academy Awards - Mrs. Miniver: One of the two leads is a woman.
16th Academy Awards - Casablanca: The director, Michael Curtiz, is Jewish, so it meets that requirement. While he isn’t a super big part of the film, Dooley Wilson, who plays Sam (“Play it again, Sam”) is one of the few American actors in this movie, and the only African American to act in any of the Best Pictures so far, unless there’s some smaller role somewhere I missed. Thought I’d mention that.
17th Academy Awards - Going My Way: Does not meet any of the requirements.
18th Academy Awards - The Lost Weekend: One of the leads is a woman.
19th Academy Awards - The Best Years of Our Life: Three of the five leads are women.
20th Academy Awards - Gentleman’s Agreement: This film was controversial at it’s release for it’s subject matter, which is about anti-Semitism in the United States, so it meets that requirement about the storyline focusing on a marganilized group.
21st Academy Awards - Hamlet: This one is tricky. I’d say it barely meets the requirement by having a female supporting character, Gertrude.
22nd Academy Awards - All the King’s Men: The director, Robert Rossen, was Jewish (and a Communist. Fun fact.) and a significant female role, which the actress won an Oscar for.
23rd Academy Awards - All About Eve: Three of the four leads are women.
24th Academy Awards - An American in Paris: Two of the five major characters are women. The director, Liza Minelli’s father, was also perhaps ⅛ Anishinaabe Native American, but I would say he’s still excluded from that group.
25th Academy Awards - The Greatest Show on Earth: Of the seven major characters, four are women.
26th Academy Awards - From Here to Eternity: Director Fred Zinneman was Jewish.
27th Academy Awards - On the Waterfront: Producer Sam Spiegel was Jewish.
28th Academy Awards - Marty: While not explicitly stated, some could say that the eponymous character, who is socially awkward and unmarried at 34, could be seen as cognitively disabled somehow.
29th Academy Awards - Around the World in 80 Days: Lead actor Cantinflas is Mexican. This is the first time a film has won best picture with a lead actor of color.
30th Academy Awards - The Bridge on the River Kwai: One of the lead four actors is Sessue Hayakawa, who was Japanese. This is the first time a film has won best picture with a major character of Asian descent.
31st Academy Awards - Gigi: Four of the eight major characters are women.
32nd Academy Awards - Ben-Hur: Director William Wyler was Jewish.
33rd Academy Awards - The Apartment: One of the two main leads is a woman.
34th Academy Awards - West Side Story: Director Jerome Robbins was Jewish; Screenwriter Ernest Lehman was Jewish; Originators of the stage show Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim, and Arthur Laurents are all gay Jews; actress Rita Morena is Puerto Rican.
35th Academy Awards - Lawrence of Arabia: Producer Sam Spiegel, mentioned above, was Jewish; Actor Anthony Quinn was Mexican-American; Actor Jose Ferrer was Puerto Rican; Actor Omar Sharif was Egyptian; Additionally, T.E.Lawrence was probably gay.
36th Academy Awards - Tom Jones: Of the major characters, many are women.
37th Academy Awards - My Fair Lady: Two of the lead characters are women.
38th Academy Awards - The Sound of Music: Julie Andrews is a woman, and she plays the lead character.
39th Academy Awards - A Man for All Seasons: Director Fred Zinneman was Jewish.
40th Academy Awards - In the Heat of the Night: Lead actor Sidney Poitier is a black Bahamian American. This is the first time a film starring a black man has won Best Picture. This film is actually pretty relevant - it’s about a black police detective from Philadelphia investigating murders in rural Mississippi, so I suspect it would meet that requirement for marginalized people aswell.
41st Academy Awards - Oliver! Okay so this one is a bit more nuanced. The film is an adaptation of Oliver Twist, and is thus about orphans living in an orphanage. I don’t think anybody would argue that they haven’t lived a life of near universal oppression, but do they meet the requirements? I don’t know. I’ll say that it doesn’t meet those requirements.
42nd Academy Awards - Midnight Cowboy: The film has a lot of gay themes, so I think it qualifies.
43rd Academy Awards - Patton: Does not meet any requirement.
44th Academy Awards - The French Connection: Does not meet any requirement.
45th Academy Awards - The Godfather: Does not meet any requirement. Unless you count the experience of Italian Americans as marginalized.
46th Academy Awards - The Sting: African American actor Robert Earl Jones plays one of the major roles.
47th Academy Awards - The Godfather Part II: Does not meet any requirement. Again, unless you count Italian experience in America.
48th Academy Awards - One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest: Besides dealing with mental health as a major plotline, Native American actor Will Sampson plays a major role in the film. This is the first time a Native American actor has been a lead in a film that won Best Picture.
49th Academy Awards - Rocky: African American actor Carl Weathers plays the film’s antagonist, Apollo Creed.
50th Academy Awards - Annie Hall: Director Woody Allen is Jewish.
51st Academy Awards - The Deer Hunter: Meryl Streep, a woman, plays one of the major roles.
52nd Academy Awards - Kramer vs. Kramer: Meryl Streep, again, meets the requirement.
53rd Academy Awards - Ordinary People: Deals with themes of mental illness.
54th Academy Awards - Chariots of Fire: A major storyline of the film concerns someone running to fight against prejudice, so it meets the requirement of the story of the marginalized.
55th Academy Awards - Ghandi: Lead actor Ben Kingsley, birth name Krishna Banjit, is of Indian descent. This is the first time a film with a lead actor of South Asian descent has won Best Picture.
56th Academy Awards - Terms of Endearment: Both lead actors are women.
57th Academy Awards - Amadeus: Lead actor F. Murray Abraham is of Syrian descent.
58th Academy Awards - Out of Africa: Meryl Streep, for the third time.
59th Academy Awards - Platoon: Supporting characters Keith David and Forest Whittaker are both African American.
60th Academy Awards - The Last Emperor: Other than Peter O’Toole, who plays a supporting character, every actor in this film is of East Asian descent. This is - unless I’m mistaken - the first time a film with a predominantly nonwhite cast has won for Best Picture.
61st Academy Awards - Rain Man: obviously, deals with the mentally impaired.
62nd Academy Awards - Driving Miss Daisy: Lead actor Morgan Freeman is African American; the other lead actor is Jessica Tandy, who is a woman. And it also deals with civil rights issues and racism.
63rd Academy Awards - Dances with Wolves: Other than Kevin Costner and Mary McDonnell, every actor in the film is of Native American descent. Fun fact: Although a recent Salon article railed against this film as “A white savior trope” (can you guess what ethnicity it’s author was?) The Sioux adopted Kevin Costner as an honorary member of their tribe for their portrayal in this movie, and other Native Americans at the time said “There's a lot of good feeling about the film in the Native community, especially among the tribes. I think it's going to be very hard to top this one.”
64th Academy Awards - The Silence of the Lambs: stars Jodie Foster and deals with LGBT themes.
65th Academy Awards - Unforgiven: Does not meet any of the requirements.
66th Academy Awards - Schindler’s List: Deals with the story of a marginalized group, Jewish people. Obviously racism and antisemitism as well.
67th Academy Awards - Forrest Gump: Deals with cognitive impairment.
68th Academy Awards - Braveheart: A few major characters are women.
69th Academy Awards - The English Patient: One of the lead characters, played by Juliette Binoche, is a woman. Naveen Andrews, who is a British actor of South Asian descent, also plays a major role in the film.
70th Academy Awards - Titanic: One of the leads, Kate Winslet, is a woman.
71st Academy Awards - Shakespeare in Love: Gwyneth Paltrow is a woman...but she plays a woman playing a man?
72nd Academy Awards - American Beauty: deals with LGBTQ Themes. This movie sure aged like milk, huh?
73rd Academy Awards - Gladiator: Djimon Hounso, who is of African descent, plays a major character in this film. It also deals with slavery?
74th Academy Awards - A Beautiful Mind: deals with mental illness.
75th Academy Awards - Chicago: both leads are women, and there are many supporting female characters.
76th Academy Awards - The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King: The Nazgul is killed by a woman..does that make her a major character? If so then this film meets a requirement, if not, it doesn’t. Can you believe this film only cost $90 million?
77th Academy Awards - Million Dollar Baby: Hillary Swank plays the main character, a woman, and Morgan Freeman plays a major supporting role. Also deals with cognitive impairment, and racism.
78th Academy Awards - Crash: Features (LUDA!) Chris Bridges, Terrence Howard, and Thandie Newton, who are all African American or of African descent; Also deals with racial issues. Also, by the way, fun fact: TERRIBLE movie.
79th Academy Awards - The Departed: Does not meet any requirements.
80th Academy Awards - No Country for Old Men: Does not meet any requirements.
81st Academy Awards - Slumdog Millionaire: Every actor is of South Asian descent; This is the first time a film with an all South Asian cast has won for Best Picture.
82nd Academy Awards - The Hurt Locker: Anthony Mackie, who is African American, plays a major role. The film also deals with the consequences of the Iraq War and American military actions; This is the first time a film directed by a woman has won for Best Picture.
83rd Academy Awards - The King’s Speech: Helena Bonham Carter plays Queen Elizabeth, a major role in the film.
84th Academy Awards - The Artist: One of the lead characters is a woman, played by Argentinian actress Berenice Bejo. Argentina is 97% white, does an Argentinian count as a person of color? I don’t know, honestly.
85th Academy Awards - Argo: Does not meet any of the requirements.
86th Academy Awards - 12 Years a Slave: Main character played by Chiwetel Ejiofor, a British actor of African descent, and Lupita Nyongo, a Mexican-American actress of African descent, plays a major role in the film as well.
87th Academy Awards - Birdman: Director Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu, as well as the Director of Photography, Emmanuel Lubezski, is Mexican.
88th Academy Awards - Spotlight: Deals with the Catholic church’s cover-up of their child abuse, so it meets the marginalized people requirement, I think.
89th Academy Awards - Moonlight: Deals with LGBT themes, features an all black cast. Fun fact: This is the lowest budgeted film to ever win for Best Picture, at $1.5 million. The CG that was added to the end of Men In Black, to put over the cockroach practical effect cost, in comparison, $4 million.
90th Academy Awards - The Shape of Water: Director Guillermo Del Toro is Mexican, and Octavia, who is African American, has a supporting role in the film.
91st Academy Awards - Green Book: One of the lead roles is played by Mahershala Ali, who is African American; The film also deals with racism issues, so it fulfills that requirement as well.
92nd Academy Awards - Parasite: Features an all East Asian cast. While I’ve seen it argued that Koreans who live in Korea today were not affected by the “Chinese” Exclusion Act in the United States, Korea was occupied by Japan during World War 2, so I would argue that they probably still feel the effects from that.
