Stephen King

(no subject)

The movie of Dolan's Cadillac has had a painful road to distribution -- it had not been released in the States, and premiered on DVD in Sweden and Finland, which does not strike me as a vote of confidence for a US/Canadian production. It has now turned up on R4 dvd as well, and turns out to be better than expected. It does has a feeling of disjointed set pieces, but it comes together.

Kyla spotted a print therein from our beautiful edition of Poe stories, illustrated by Harry Clarke, which was very appropriate. Less appreciated was the garish ad they inserted before the end credits, for some competition. This is art, you know! It has Stephen King's name on the front; how can it not be?
