Movies For Your Monday
Don’t get us wrong. We’re not undermining the quality of these books. We’re just expressing our immense joy over movies that are as nuanced as the authors’ writing: Loading Slideshow “There Will Be Blood” Paul Thomas Anderon’s film is a very loose adaptation of Upton Sinclair’s “Oil!” While the former is a satire about green and the oil industry, the movie skirts the line between literal and absurd, making for a shocking watch. “Jurassic Park” The novel was a bestseller when it was published in 1990, but gained more acclaim after the movie came out. Spielberg’s adaptation was groundbreaking for the industry, in an “Avatar” sort of way, as it was a revolutionary use of CGI and animatronics. “American Psycho” Oh, Bret Easton Ellis. His books, not to mention his tweets, can be gratuitously graphic. But director Mary Harron managed to morph his story into a terrifically transgressive story, lauded by both critics and academics. We think the casting may be to thank for this one. “The Shining” This is an incredible book, with an equally incredible sequel (you can read an excerpt from “Doctor Sleep” here). But Jack Nicholson’s performance, along with the eerie soundtrack and creepy-as-hell shots of identically-dressed children makes this film a classic. The book, on the other hand, is not King’s most critically acclaimed. “Precious” Sapphire’s book is inventive, to be sure: protagonist Precious begins writing when she’s semi-illiterate, and uses phonetic spellings.
