i just finished this;
the novel, that is, and i loved it. i had mixed (overal negative) reactions towards the film itself, but after reading the novel i'd like to take a second look at it.
it brings up an interesting thing about how u change, and more specicially, how ur tastes change over time. i saw this film maybe, well, whenver it was out in the theaters-- over a year ago? and at the time i thought it was overstylized trite w/ muddled motives. now i'm interested in revisiting it to see if i feel the same way. it could just be that avary's adaptation doesn't compare to the novel. i dunno.
woody allen was quoted as to hating 2001 when it came out, only years later to embrace the film as a masterpiece. so i guess the question is-- what films/books did u used to hate but have come to enjoy or even really luv over time?
