HBO’s Game of Thrones – As Good As The Book?

I’ll be honest. I’m a proponent of the tenet that the book is always better than the movie. Only in the cases where the book was written first, that is. If it says “The novelization based on the film” on the cover, then it’s kindling. I’m snooty that way.

The best documentaries transcend the subject matter and touch another place altogether – that spiritual place. And so it is with Bill Cunningham New York, a delightful documentary directed by Richard Press about the octogenarian New York Times photojournalist who comes across as a monastic figure whose sanctuary is couture.
