I wonder how that went over when he was filming The Unbearable Lightness of Being?
Lost in Criterion talks Philip Kaufman's 1988 adaptation of the 1985 Czech novel this week, an adaptation that likes to take its time with the sex bits and rush right through the rest. Pat left the movie wishing it had spend more time on the populist uprising that framed the tale of two lovers who really weren't that good for each other. I just wish we'd spent a little more time on characterization. But hey, there's a reason the novel was called unfilmable.
