I’ve been re-watching Alias, and it’s amazing how quickly one can forget story lines in television dramas. Even if you watched it consistently for a period of years. Besides some plots, I’ve forgotten how many of my favourite directors made appearances on the show; Tarantino and Cronenberg for instance. So that’s been a plus.
It’s funny though, I can reread books, but I’m never rereading because I cannot remember. I suppose this makes sense, as you help to create the world you read, whereas with a show you are merely watching it unfold.
What books have you loved that have been successfully (or unsuccessfully) turned into a films?
