nice film images, but it's a tease
on 20 December 2009
As much as I love the original novel by Roald Dahl and want to see the new film, this book is a bit deceiving. It is filled with lovely scenes from the new movie. But as anyone who has read the screenplay by Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach knows, the film is quite a departure from Roald Dahl's book. This book is put together in such a way that it appears to follow Dahl's book instead of the screenplay. I suppose this book was intended as a compromise- to show scenes from the new film, but only those which appear to follow the original story.
