The Rules of Attraction is a good movie

The Rules of Attraction is fun to watch and has some brilliant sequences, but as a movie it seems half-finished. It needs to be longer.

Maybe someday he'll be able to release Glitterati !

I ache for somebody to adapt Glamorama.  One of a handful of novels that I feel must be filmed.

Rules of Attraction is by far the best realized adaptation of any of BEE's books. American Psycho is a fun sort of "Greatest Hits" version of the book, and Bale's performance perfectly captures that character, but the film ultimately comes up short for me. Less Than Zero is bad, as is The Informers. I second the Glamorama hope, and pray that some kind, able-bodied (and moneyed) soul will come along and zap The Golden Suicides back to life.

What are the others?
If I could move the night I would
And I would turn the world around if I could
There's nothing wrong with loving something you can't hold in your hand
You're sitting on the edge of the bed, smoking and shaking your head
Well there's nothing wrong with loving things that cannot even stand
Well there goes your moony man
With his suitcase in his hand
Every road is lined with animals
That rise from their blood and walk
Well the moon won't get a wink of sleep
If I stay all night and talk

i think you could pull off Glamorama with like a handful of real actors and a waterfall of holograms. i'd watch it. sometimes france is better at combining the practical with the artistic

Ooo, possible thread idea... Could be interesting to read what novels others have in their heads as filmz.
