Idle Thumbs 193: General Interest

Recommended Posts

In this episode Chris suggested that the movie doesn't hold up very well except as a supplement to the book. FWIW I haven't read Pynchon's novel, and saw the movie last night and loved it. I think the difficulty of following some of the plot sequences gives the opportunity for the audience to occupy a similar head space as Doc lost in his own weed haze. The New York Review of Books made a case for why the movie stands on its own, and provisionally at least, it strikes me as compelling.




I am very much looking forward to reading the book at some point... maybe after I've had a little bit of distance from seeing the film.
