I quite like IN THE CUT
Fkn A top movie
I enjoyed reading this post. As I said via twitter, I enjoyed the book quite a bit, too. It's hyperbolic for a reason, and that bit of the satire is largely missing from Fincher's film vocabulary, which points to a good deal of my problems with the movie, which, basically, I find not funny enough. I may see it again, later, to watch not as an adaptation but as a film (it's of course soundly _made_), paying more attention to just how little air is in it, to see if that might inform the attitude the film has, which feels at this point rather suspiciously motivated, unlike the book, which is as grim a satire as I can imagine, however inelegant bits of its building blocks may be.
