What are people saying?

  • Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film Bloom

    I liked the opening passages of voiceover and the humor so much I think I'm going to read this... finally(!) However, film abandons the realism it set up losing it's footing as the tone becomes increasingly embarassing in trying to illustrate Joyce's unique humor. More than likely this can be attributed to the difficulty of put everything in a 2hr film ( like the unwieldy attempts at adapting Herbert's DUNE.)
