2017 | Nominiert: Best European Film

This is one of Genius’s great flaws: The film, filled with literary heavyweights, is light on insight. So many montages, so many shots of a red pencil marking up typewritten pages, but so little depth when it comes to who these people were and what motivated them. And in the end, you leave thinking: If only Max Perkins had had a stab at this.

If you have any feel for writing, and I suppose if you particularly have any feel for Wolfe’s writing, you’ll find the exchanges between editor and author exhilarating. Logan’s script, based on A. Scott Berg’s biography of Perkins, is invested in the craft of words like few other movies nowadays, even those ostensibly about writers. And if you have no particular concern for writing, the emotional drama is not insignificant.

It’s jarring that Genius comes off like a tony British play. Staged by Michael Grandage, late of London’s Donmar Warehouse and new to film, this is a stately framing of the yin-yang symbiosis between a volatile, grandiose novelist and the quietly authoritative editor who brought out the best in him.
