Vintage Saints and Sinners by Karen Wright Marsh, Free for CAPC Members
In Vintage Saints and Sinners, Karen Wright Marsh manages to emphasize the vast goodness of spiritual giants while also humanizing them.
Timur Bekmambetov, director of Wanted, will be directing an adaptation of Herman Melville’s novel Moby-Dick. A loose adaptation, it seems (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing–as much as I love the novel, I recognize that it’s hard to translate into the filmic medium a lengthy chapter about the characteristics of the sperm whale as opposed to the right whale). The recent Beowulf was a significant departure from its source, and, while it wasn’t a great movie on its own, it was a fascinating commentary on the original poem. However, given that Beowulf‘s screenplay was partially penned by Neil Gaiman, and that Moby-Dick is being written by guys whose only previous films are frat-boy fare Accepted and the Olsen twins’ New York Minute, I’m not holding my breath for a masterpiece.
