Classic novels often translate poorly to the screen. And then there are the disasters…Sun Also Rises, Great Gatsby, Brothers Karamazov (Cringe !). But, my least favorite was an adaptation of my favorite novel, The Stranger by Albert Camus. Great novel, but film was such a yawner! Oh, the ennui! But, the best adaptation of a novel was The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Just kidding, Em! There was no novel, of course, and anyway without a soundtrack what good would it be? Ah, The Ecstasy of Gold! 🙂 🙂
I had to go with ‘Alice’. Nobody can do that justice in a film.
As ever, Pete XXX.
