“Pynchon: The Movie”? Eight writers who should have biopics
The potential J. D. Salinger documentary/biopic hybrid looks particularly bizarre. The film, a depiction of the hunt for Salinger and his purported late-in-life secret writing coming out this year, feels like a violation of Salinger's withdrawal from society and refusal to allow adaptation of "The Catcher in the Rye." (Let's leave entirely aside that this is a film by the co-writer of the Blake Lively vehicle "Savages").
