Great Adaptations <p>With more than 50% of all films in release over the last century having been adapted from books, the journey that a creative property takes from page to screen is a unique and complicated one. In order to be a truly great adaptation how close must you follow the original material and how much can you stray and take off from the beaten path? Characters, timelines, locations, endings, everything is up for interpretation and those changes can be met with either chagrin or celebration.</p> <p>We're taking five different films, each considered one of the best adaptations of its source material and diving in to see what each did to set themselves apart. From the wild and abstract Adaptation. to the snappy The Thin Man, the shocking Manchurian Candidate, the expansive Blade Runner and the vivid and terrifying It.</p> 2510 E.

Great Adaptations: The Manchurian Candidate <p>Pre-film lecture "Political Nightmares In The Cold War Era" and post-film discussion led by Melinda Barlow, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Film Studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder.</p> <p>As eerily prescient at the moment of its release as it is for our own time, The Manchurian Candidate is a taut political thriller smartly directed by Golden Age of television veteran John Frankenheimer. “The last, most sophisticated film of the Cold War era,” as one critic put it, this early ‘60s tour de force adapted from the shocking novel by Richard Condon (1959) plays like mid-70s conspiracy theory cinema while leveling a serious critique against McCarthyism. Featuring gorgeous black and white cinematography and spectacular dream sequences, the film stars Laurence Harvey as Raymond Shaw, the son of a prominent political family who returns irrevocably changed by the Korean War; Angela Lansbury as his unforgettable mother; and Frank Sinatra as Major Bennett Marco, a man trying to understand his own recurring nightmares, and figure out why Shaw is suddenly acting so strangely.</p> 2510 E.

Eight Hours Don't Make A Day <p>Commissioned to make a working-class family drama, up-and-coming director Rainer Werner Fassbinder took the assignment and ran, upending expectations by depicting social realities in West Germany from a critical—yet far from cynical—perspective. Over the course of several hours, the sprawling story tracks the everyday triumphs and travails of the young toolmaker Jochen (Gottfried John) and many of the people populating his world, including the woman he loves (Hanna Schygulla), his eccentric nuclear family, and his fellow workers, with whom he bands together to improve conditions on the factory floor. Rarely screened since its popular but controversial initial broadcast, Eight Hours Don’t Make a Day rates as a true discovery, one of Fassbinder’s earliest and most tender experiments with the possibilities of melodrama. </p> 2510 E.
