dilution

Posted to What Are You Reading?




he's had a bit of a resurrection recently, and rightly so, he could come out the 'popular obscure' bracket and be placed in the 'recognised genius' one...Although i still say that there hasn't been a movie yet that has conveyed the worlds of Phillip K Dick accurately. It seems that every adaptation has been co-opted and changed by the director or production company. (look at 'Bladerunner' then read 'Do Androids dream of Electric Sheep?' and you'll discover it takes an entirely different route, the same can be said of 'Total Recall' and the short 'We can remember it for you wholesale') Alas, Dick's vision is so often diluted by others.
