It Doesn't Have To Be Right…

… it just has to sound plausible

DVD review online

My review of The Informers, an adaptation of the novel by Bret East Ellis, is now up at VideoVista – see here.

Having seen Less Than Zero, American Psycho, Rules Of Attraction and now The Informers (we won’t count American Psycho 2), I’ve yet to be convinced Ellis’ novels are capable of good film adaptation. All of them have been unsatisfactory in one way or another. Perhaps it’s his characters – they work over the length of a novel, where you at least have the prose; but in a movie they’re simply too unlikeable or affectless to carry a story in such a short period of time.
