The Road

Nice piece in today's NYT from Charles McGrath on the filming of Cormac McCarthy's The Road.

The book was a masterpiece; I've read other McCarthy stuff, but this one just kind of throws you down and stomps on you with its elegance and devastation. I knew they were making a movie, and I wondered how much would be lost. While the proof is in the pudding, as my mother would have said, the link makes me think I'll actually plunk down in a theatre for this one. And Viggo Mortensen? How's that for casting? Okay, I'll be quiet now.

Speaking of movies, I'm kicking myself for waiting for the video of There Will Be Blood. Amazing movie I should have seen in the theatre.
