adlai almost wishes One Flew would've been a mediocre movie, then maybe more people would read the book
mircea_popescu: why ?
adlai: because it's excellent
adlai: the movie is good, very good. but as long as the book's around, it'll only be second best
adlai: the book is quite different from the movie, in that the movie merely tells a story, whereas the book takes the slightest baby step towards actually placing you inside the main character's head
adlai: and the main character is neither jack nicholson nor randall mcmurphy
mircea_popescu: imo this is one of those situations where the better movie makes the book its bitch. yes the book is longer and goes into more detail, as a book has space to do. but this is a twin edged sword
adlai: well i guess mcmurphy is the "main character", but the book has a narrator. i'm not sure i've seen a movie yet where narration didn't interfere with the story
mircea_popescu: the chief narrator device is mostly there to insulate the author from tyhe material, best i can tell.
mircea_popescu: anyway, stroke of luck mostly, god only knows what'd have happened if one of the douglas hack clan ended up with the role.
mircea_popescu: also mildly interesting, how that toothpaste-commercial-and-soap-opera extra got the nurse part.
mircea_popescu: forman blessfuly caught on eventually that the personification of evil has to be familiar, not visibly "evil".
adlai: what do you mean by "insulate the author"? ken kesey's writing process was a rather uninsulated anthropological investigation...
mircea_popescu: ha.
mircea_popescu: i suppose all the lsd and mental hospital moonlighting are there because he's all secure in his dominion, right.
thestringpuller: adlai: didn't that happen with fight club as well?
adlai hasn't read the book
mircea_popescu: thestringpuller i dunno if you did this deliberately or not, but really, it's too smooth to not credit you with it.
mircea_popescu: so yeah, palahniuk loved the movie adaptation ; kensey hated it.
mircea_popescu: notably, he didn't hate it for any reason, other than being a vocal leader in the "book was better" chorus ; and for the director very sensibly removing the chief narrator clingwrap.
mircea_popescu: he never actually saw it. but he hated it, because "o noes, can't touch radioactive without chief brand mask!11"
adlai: 'kensey' is the hybrid synthesis of ken kesey and... alf kinsey?
adlai: the One Flew movie is a great movie though, in its own right. it's orthogonal to the book
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: kesey, kesey.
mircea_popescu: so then why'd you mention the book.
ben_vulpes: unrelated: http://writing-c-unites-workers.shithouse.tv/
assbot: writing-c-unites-workers ... ( http://bit.ly/1T0QkPu )
adlai: the movie was good because it didn't try-and-fail to capture what the book does, which boils down to the power of humor
mircea_popescu: way i see it both try the same thing, in their own medium : describe the doomed situation of a society which has lost male force and is now going into castration mode at the hands of the decaying female biomass. it's a failure mode of human populations, well known, well understood, amply documented.
mircea_popescu: the film does a better job of this as a film than the book does a job of it as a book. arguably this is because film has less space to do it in ; countrariwise, film is more of a "tower of babel" sort of artifice, so it's harder to get anything done.
mircea_popescu: other than this mediated sort of approach, straight book-film comparisons are pretty meaningless anyway.
adlai: fight club's message, otoh, is a bit more in the "this is how you win" direction, rather than just "here's a problem, have fun dealing with it"
mircea_popescu: to me fight club is merely a coupla stages down. "we're lost - infantilism is always a refuge".
mircea_popescu: the notion that fight club is productive in any sense is pretty lulzy to me.
punkman: thestringpuller: adlai: didn't that happen with fight club as well? << I thought epilogue of the book was better than movie ending
adlai: i really disliked fight club because it lets the infantile 'rage' overshadow the parts that it shares with oneflew
mircea_popescu: which are those ?
mircea_popescu: all i see is disproportionate violence (note that mcmurphy doesn't set fire to the fucking hospital - heck he doesn't even LEAVE when he has the chance, because reasons.) and disavowal (really, the voices in your head told you to, maybe, who knows ? what are you, a dumbass us girl that has to get herself drunk to be able to have sex ?)
trinque: and then the act itself is futile.
adlai: they're both about identifying and responding to 'doomed situation'. palahniuk says, set fire to the hospital, while kesey just laughs all the way to the ECT
trinque: take a couple of buildings down and utopia!
mircea_popescu: in the book. in the film, nicholson OWNS the place.
mircea_popescu: so does the [resuscitated, through this] indian.
punkman: book ending: "With Tyler gone, the narrator waits for the bomb to explode and kill him. The bomb malfunctions because Tyler mixed paraffin into the explosives. Still alive and holding Tyler's gun, the narrator makes the first decision that is truly his own: he puts the gun in his mouth and shoots himself. Some time later, he awakens in a mental hospital, believing he is in Heaven, and
punkman: imagines an argument with God over human nature. The book ends with the narrator's being approached by hospital employees who reveal themselves to be Project members. They tell him their plans still continue, and that they are expecting Tyler to come back."
mircea_popescu: the fact that they can actually jointly own it just fine is a stronger indictment of the female-mitigated insanity than anything else could ever be.
mircea_popescu: punkman whadda you like about this ? the christic parallel ?
adlai: that's not the book ending, that's wikipedia :(
adlai: "but the territory doesn't fit in the blockchain"
mircea_popescu: which is why this is a good film./
mircea_popescu: if it fit i wouldn't have cared to review it.
mircea_popescu: anyway, that's a path less traveled that should be. WHY is it that redskins in the continental us HAD TO be massacred ? is it because they "couldn't fit" in its future, somehow, mysteriously ? is it perhaps because white guys wanted the depopulation to support higher wages and liberty [aka the fronteer lifestyle] ? is it perhaps because the wives of farmers "didn't feel safe" with them around ?
mircea_popescu: i don't have a straight answer, but i will say that having been in argentina for a while now and having observed the assorted insanities they sport here, grouped for convenience under the "inseguridad" thematic, i understand a lot more of the fate of the new world.

mircea_popescu: they'd have just abandoned europe like the whores that they are and under pressure they'd have stayed in a better state of preservation for longer.

phf: (experience of The Combine as a palpable thing for example, during his pranksters period turned into attempts at active manipulation of others, i.e. The Consensus, through Control, which pranksters called "putting them into our movie". if you can put them into our movie, you can make them read our lines. etc.)
