- GFT Blog: Our Favourite AdaptationsA Scanner Darkly - Richard Linklater There have been tones of films based on the work of Philip K. Dick [most of them are pretty rubbish] & everyone always cites Blade Runner as the grand-daddy of them all. As great as that film is, I'd like to draw attention to Richard Linklater's adaptation of Dick's 1977 novel about a drug user living with other addicts who's doubling as a narcotics agent investigating the members of the household, including himself. Perfecting the rotoscope animation technique he experimented with in Waking Life, I think Linklater manages to convey the paranoia that runs through the novel rather brilliantly. He also gets excellent performances from an ensemble cast that includes Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey Jr. and Winona Ryder. It's unlike Linklater's other films because of its atmosphere whilst simultaneously being right within his wheelhouse because it retains his sympathetic, humanist approach to his characters. Highly recommend it! I also love the film adaptation of Fight Club. Jackie Brown [which is based on Elmore Leonard's Rum Punch] is awesome too as is the Coen Bros. True Grit - could type paragraphs about those films too but I'll just pick one.
- GFT Blog: Our Favourite AdaptationsFar too many great book to film adaptations. One of the best Jaws. Read the book one night saw film next week. Wanted my mummy both times
- GFT Blog: Our Favourite AdaptationsNever Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro is one of my favourite film adaptations. The book deals with so many complex issues that I didn't believe it would transfer to film well. Andrew Garfield, however, is phenomenal in his portrayal of the emotions he feels in his dire situation. They deal with very uncomfortable and delicate themes in a very careful way. Combined with the great cast it creates a heart-wrenching movie that I save for when I need to have a wee cry.
