I recently read Norwegian Wood
by Haruki Murakami.( I once had a girl— )
It's strange to say this knowing that a film adaptation is in the works, but I think that Norwegian Wood
will work better as a film than as a book. It may have been the translation, but nothing about the prose itself really gripped me, and I think that a film narrative will bring out the complexities in the characters and their interactions in a more impressive way. I listened to Jonny Greenwood's new piece "Doghouse", which will be adapted into the score for the film, and I adored it — and I think that it will make Norwegian Wood
a better film than it would have been otherwise, even. It is precisely what I want from the score to this film.
