- Win tickets to jazz age-epic The Great Gatsby!For me, it has to be either Fight Club, or American Psycho. Both are stylish, pacy, and remain pretty faithful to the original text, while bringing clarity to difficult narrative structure. Both deal with dissociation, both began as underground novels, but turned into enduringly popular films. On balance, I think I would have to pick Fight Club, because I just love it that little bit more. It has more pace, more empathy and the performances are more finely tuned. There is also more of a narrative arc in the story, and the comedy is more keen, less one-tone than AS. Also, any film with a cameo by Meatloaf is bound to be truly great. But shhhhhhhh! Remember rule one of Fight Club?
- Win tickets to jazz age-epic The Great Gatsby!Jim Thompson's The Getaway. The best 20th century crime fiction novel, perfectly brought to screen by Sam Peckinpah, Steve McQueen and Ali McGraw.
