brief interviews

The Office's John Krasinski has written and directed a film adaptation of David Foster Wallace's Brief Interviews With Hideous Men. I had no idea.

Two quick notes:

  • Actually, I had no idea until learned about it via the always helpful Ezra Cooper, who writes that it "can maybe best be described as a scarifying experience. Not redeptive, or cathartic, certainly, but more of a bracing shove."
  • If you Google the title, the page for the film now outranks the page for the book. Hooray for Hollywood! (And for AMZN, obviously.)
