Movie Mondays: Literary Adaptations, Indie Style

For every bestseller that makes it to the big screen, there are a number of novels whose adaptations can only be found in art house or independent theatres in major cities. These adaptions often fly under the radar and often receive mixed reviews from critics and audiences, but they’re worth a look. These six adaptations include works by major American and European authors as well as works co (more)

Movie Mondays: Doppelgänger Movies

Many people remember Philip Seymour Hoffman’s tour-de-force performance as Truman Capote in the biopic Capote, which earned him an Academy Award. Less well known is the fact that another movie was released shortly thereafter which covers almost exactly the same ground: Infamous.

Part science fiction, part horror story, part survival/adventure story. This is based on a famous book in German culture: what would you do if suddenly, you were glassed off from the rest of society, stuck in a self-sufficient homestead? The heroine writes a diary as she grapples with the new status of her life. It's never explained what happened--we see her adjust with the help of her animals and her own strength. Beautiful nature scenes (the Alps).

Thought it was a beautiful movie. yes it was depressing, but in reality, there is depressing situatios out there. in fiction, there is even more depressing possibilities. but if you are looking to escape into a world of joy, do not get this movie. if you want to learn about a mind blowing experience and what it means to really be alone then please watch. you are never as alone as this and you can watch the character find comfort in all that she is stuck with. boom.

I think this is a really beautiful movie. The premise is only absurd if you miss the point that is being made. This is a beautiful meditation on the place of human beings within nature. The acting is top notch, even by the animals that are in the film. Clearly not for everyone, and I respect the other opinions given but this is one of my favorite films. The book is something special too.
