Day 247-- a few movie notes

-- A film adaptation of A Severe Mercy? What? What? Really? I know there is also an adaptation of the Screwtape Letters floating around as well. What? What? Why? (Clarification: some great books feel best left as books.)

-- Apparently, the Coen brothers' upcoming No Country For Old Men will be almost entirely without a score. That's a bold move. Carter Burwell--the composer they've used for 11 of their 12 films--is using an ultra-minimalist score that blends in with the movie's sound effects.

-- George Lucas calls Spider-Man 3 "silly." Pot-kettle-black?

-- Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, the great and imaginative novel I'm halfway through, is slated for a 2008 release on the silver screen. If they do it well, it'll (hopefully) be like the BBC version of Pride & Prejudice mixed with Sharpe's Company, a dash of magic.

I think I agree...really can't see A Severe Mercy as a film. Interesting.
