Self-plug – From Book to Screen: Bret Easton Ellis

26 Apr

I recently wrote a post for Flickchart: The Blog about the different film adaptations there have been of Bret Easton Ellis‘ books so far – Less Than Zero, American Psycho, The Rules of Attraction, and The Informers. It’s similar to a series called The Book and the Movie that I’ve done at this blog from time to time. I look at what has changed in the transition from page to screen, what works, and what doesn’t.

Please do give it a read. It can be found right here:

    This. Is. Awesome. Ellis is my favorite author and I’ve been wanting to do a similar post for quite some time. What an incredible article you’ve done there.

      Thank you kindly! Been meaning to write something like this for a long time, but it took me a while to get around to reading The Informers. Now I’ve read every book he has released, and yeah, he can be pretty great. I’m really looking forward to the Glamorama movie that’s in production. That might be my favorite novel of his. Except maybe American Psycho.

    I love Ellis so I’m off to check the post now. It’s a shame The Informers wasn’t a better movie.
