If you're interested in movies that are in part or whole about writers, here are some suggestions for the coming breaks (either Thanksgiving or the longer winter break). In many of these films, the writer is depicted as a rather comic, neurotic type, perhaps indeed a "tool" as it were. These all come with a Kudera guarantee of course, which for reasons of fiscal prudence in these unfortunate times cannot include any kind of "money back" statement. I'm betting you have watched some of these already.
Anyway, here goes:
The Daytrippers (also a Thanksgiving movie, possibly my favorite comic film)
Wonder Boys (based upon the novel by Michael Chabon)
State and Main (David Mamet; House of Games if you're more into the hustling life)
Henry Fool (Hal Hartley; the sequel, Fay Grim, is disappointing)
The Stone Reader (a documentary about a "one book" author)
Ask The Dust (based upon the novel by John Fante)
and three by Woody Allen:
Husbands and Wives
Crimes and Misdemeanors
Others whose titles escape me at the moment include one about the life of Janet Frame and at least one film by the Coen brothers. I'll add to and edit this when I can. If you happen upon this entry, feel free to "comment" on your own favorite "writing life" films.
