A man who gives a good account of himself is probably lying, since any life when viewed from the inside is simply a series of defeats." -George Orwell My name is Eric Arthur Blair, but many of you may know me as the author George Orwell.

As Brian McFarlane observes in “It Wasn't Like That in the Book...”, viewers are more likely to come out of a theater after viewing an adaptation griping about what was different or better in the book than by commenting about the film in its own right (McFarlane 6). It is rare for such films to be judged as films in their own right, and often viewers aren't looking for an adaptation inspired by the novel, but rather a completely faithful representation of the original work, in film form....   [tags: ]
