Life, I'd heard someone say, is a comedy for those who think and a tragedy for those who feel. It seemed to me that it was both at once, even for those of us who don't do much of either.

T wo things that really stand out in the Scudder books, and that make them stand out: Scudder's philosophical musings, and the city of New York as a character in itself. I'm wondering how those will come across in the film, or whether they've been sacrificed for plot. I suspect that at least the first will be largely absent, but it would be a very different movie otherwise. Probably a lot longer and less popular and while I may enjoy it, they don't make movies just for me. Unfortunately.
