The Conversations: True Grit
As many if not most of you already know, the latest edition of The Conversations has been posted to The House Next Door -- several days ago, actually. In this month's edition, Ed Howard and I discuss the Coens' True Grit, and also Henry Hathaway's 1969 version, famously starring John Wayne. Both films are based, to some degree or another, on a Clinton Portis novel that neither Ed nor I has read. Thankfully, some readers of our discussion have read the novel, and so the benefit of being tardy in posting this link is that I can tell you that the comments section is very much worth reading. Also, for what it's worth, if you ever avoid The Conversations due to their length, this edition is relatively short. You'll still kill a tree printing it out, but a smaller tree. Anyway, my delayed posting here isn't indicative of a lack of enthusiasm, so if you haven't yet, get on over to The House Next Door and dive into the discussion.
