Flannery O’Criterion

Weird. I bought Flannery O’Connor’s first novel, Wise Blood a few months ago and let it sit on my shelf collecting dust before finally picking it up a few days ago and burning through it. Now Criterion is releasing the John Huston directed adaptation on May 12. Weird.

Here’s the amazing art work for those of you interested in such things.

  1. A great novel and a great adaptation–glad to see it’s on Criterion. Huston’s adaptation of The Dead is pretty impressive too, he’s one of the few semi-famous movie directors who seems like he “gets” literature. Or maybe he’s just one of the few semi-famous movie directors who knows how to read.

  2. I think you may be right. I’ve only seen the trailer, but every scene included in it features dialogue pulled straight from the book. The last film I remember having done that was Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which basically used the book as a script.

  3. The film adaptation of Revolutionary Road was pretty much pulled straight from the novel as well. It left some things out, but the dialogue was almost entirely from the book.
