I'm starting to come around to this way of thinking too.

Only starting? ;)

Have you seen SILENCE?
What's the got to do with it? After your review of Dillinger you've lost all credibility.



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

Only after that review? ;)

Passion 3/5

Enjoyable thriller from De Palma and a major bummer I didn't get around to see it in theaters.

Summer of Sam - 4/5

New York sure looked like the place to be in '77.

The Killer Inside Me - 2/5

I enjoyed it when I first saw it in theaters. Then i got around to reading Thompson's novel and it's one of my favorites. Tragically, I re-watched the film and saw that I didn't care for it like when I first saw it.

The 2010 version with Affleck or the 1976 version with Stacey Keach?

The 2010. Haven't had a chance to see the other one.

Nocturnal Animals - Tom (not John) Ford

Visually and thematically rich film. 8,5/10

The best thing the 2010 did IMO was keep the story in the correct time period.

I agree. What about the 1976 version? Is that any good? From what I've been reading and from the glowing review in Barry Gifford's Out of the Past: Adventures in Film Noir, it seems as though the 1979 French film Serie Noire is the best adaptation of any of Jim Thompson's work. Shame that the Blu-ray doesn't have any english subtitles  :(

Don't forget Peckinpah's The Getaway

Its a good movie but with the film losing the last chapter of the book, I wouldn't say its the best adaptation.

The 1976 version is done in the present (70s) and it's not very film noir-ish.

My favorite Thompson adaptations are Hit Me (1996), This World Then The Fireworks (1997), The Grifters (1990), and The Kill-Off (1989) and Coup de torchon (1981)

Yes, but films should be only using the books, not trying to be faithful.

I read the novel once, and the film is much better than the novel.
