Movie Natters: November 14, 2007 Archive

Kicking myself

I chatted with Joe Sacco the comics journalist yesterday but forgot to ask for his thoughts on the movie version of Marjane Satrapi's acclaimed graphic novel "Persepolis."

It's based on her experiences growing up in Iran. The film premiered at the New York Film Festival last month, and is due to go on limited release across the US in late December. Sounds like it will be in Minnesota in early Janulary.

Comic books are a little like radio in that the medium gets its power from the way readers have to conjure images to complete the narrative.

However sometimes when the images are animated for a film it ends up being a disappointment. But I wonder what Sacco thinks. Man! I really wish I had remembered.
