One thought on “Night Film

  1. Jesse (JesseTheReader)

    4.5 HOLY MOLY THIS BOOK WAS FANTASTIC F A N T A S T I C The only reason I m giving it a 4.5 is because it felt unnecessarily long Even though I flew through this sucker, I feel like it could have been condensed a bit Other than that this was SO SO SO GOOD AHHH.

    good lord, remember marisha pessl she of Special Topics in Calamity Physics fame remember the immense fawning hordes of fans and the praise surrounding that book you might not, it was 7 years ago and all but it was a Very Big Deal at the timed it was a book that i personally thought was just okay i am a tough judge of books that claim to be like The Secret History i might have said this once or twice or a dozen times on the internet and i thought special topics was fine, just a little too cheeki [...]

    A failure on nearly every level The characters are paper flat, they all speak in exactly the same preposterous voice, and none of them develop an inch But that s okay, you might argue Pessl s writing a thriller, and plot is her main concern Fine, but the plot of this novel is deeply, deeply boring Night Film reads like a would be thriller by someone who s never actually read a thriller or a mystery The protagonist stumps around from obvious clue to obvious clue, talking to a host of characters w [...]

    Has it happened yet Have the oh so annoying cover notations calling every new release the new Gone Girl ceased and the new Night Film labels taken over If so, the loud bang you will soon hear will be my head exploding If Kubrick, Polanski, Hitchock, and Tarantino had a twisted little baby, his name would most likely have been Stanislas Cordova A genius who gained fame immediately after his first horror film release Cordova has spent his life in exile on his private estate hmmmmm, maybe Marlon Br [...]

    599 I love to put my characters in the dark, it s only then that I can see exactly who they are Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves Everyone has a Cordova story, whether they like it or not I hate how the people who really get you are the ones you can never hold on to for very long And the ones who don t understand you at all stick around We re living longer, we social network alone with our screens, and our depth of feeling gets shallower With the iPiano, anyone can be an [...]

    Whatever the truth about Cordova, within fifteen horrifying films, he taught us how our eyes and minds perpetually deceive us that what we know to be certain never is In the shadows stood a girl in a red coat.Stanislas Cordova disappeared from public life thirty years ago Scott McGrath, an investigative reporter, made an attempt to uncover the truth about Cordova and his films McGrath paid a heavy price financially when Cordova sued him, and also professionally when some of his allegations prove [...]

    Either I m a lot dumber than I thought, or this book isn t as smart as it thinks it is Or maybe both Ambiguity It s a bitch Scott McGrath used to be a hotshot investigative journalist until he started looking into mysterious and reclusive film director Stanilas Cordova who has been holed up in his remote estate making underground masterpieces of suspense that seem to ruin the lives of almost everyone involved with them Think M Night Shyamalan before we all realized that he actually sucks McGrath [...]

    MY GOD THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING I absolutely ADORED Night Film I had been putting off this book for quite a while 1 because it s GIANT and 2 it s adult, and I am primarily a young adult reader The synopsis of the book really intrigued me because I am such a junkie for anything psychological, thrilling, investigative, and mysterious, so I felt that Night Film would be the perfect fit for me AND IT WAS Night Film was honestly SO gripping The visualization of this story was off the charts it was so e [...]

    It is often the roll your eye moments of books or movies that weaken the reading viewing experience for me, but I have to be honest in saying that I cannot always define what exactly triggers those eye rolls I think sometimes it is the predictability of the plot, other times the outrageousness of coincidence or lack of plausibility If I get the impression I am being manipulated to feel a certain way, I bristle and balk But what happens when a book commits one or of these grave errors and I don [...]

    This review is probably going to be on the controversial side, but I found Night Film very racist, transphobic, and sexist Some of the dialogue was so problematic for me that I had to take constant breaks I even had to use a reward system to just finish this book I know many of my friends, who I respect and love, gave this five stars Some even claimed it was their favorite read of 2015 I m happy for them, and I m happy a book brought them so much joy That s the beauty of reading everyone is goin [...]

    Back in high school English class, when the topic turned to themes or leitmotifs or metaphors that was my cue to zone out and explore my theoretical sex life consequently, a book that wears this kind of stuff on its sleeve has a tendency to leave me cold it all swirls around a creepy, reclusive film director whose work challenges his fans to rethink what the meaning of life is all about Whatever happened to Joel Schumacher Toss in the death of his daughter Did she jump or was she pushed , a disg [...]

    When the daughter of a legendary reclusive film director commits suicide, disgraced investigative reporter Scott McGrath sees his chance for redemption, for he crossed paths with the director, Stanislas Cordova, years before, costing him his family and his career What will McGrath find when he begins tugging at the strands of Cordova s web When I interviewed Edward Lorn for my book blog, he mentioned this among his favorite books At the time, I saw that it had some post modern aspects and dismis [...]

    3.5Night Film opens with one hell of a prologue easily the best I have ever come across Those opening pages exude such authentic creepiness that it becomes impossible to not keep turning the pages, to not want to know about the enigma of the reclusive legendary Hollywood director, Stanislas Cordova This, I believe, is Pessl s greatest achievement here With multimedia inclusions and some tight writing, she manages to do in a handful of pages what so many authors spend entire books trying she man [...]

    Oh la, I have the greatest friends Karen Queen of and Greg King of BN conspired to help me get my hot little hands on an ARC of this a bunch of months before it s published But of course, I now find myself in a very precarious position I mean, I want to jump and shout and tell you all about this crazy amazing book and how brilliant and sprawling and incredible it is But that would be irresponsible and cruel, because this book is just loaded with spoiler traps, and it would be awful of me to ruin [...]

    If in Vegas there were futures bets available on authors I would have imagine that Marisha Pessl would have been a pretty sure thing on hitting the sopho slump I could picture the odds being something like 1400, or somewhere around 1200 for surpassing her first book She was the it writer for a season Some people loved her book I would be in that camp Some thought it was overly derivative I m in that camp, too and some turned their noses up at it, but it got a lot of attention It sold quite a few [...]

    I started this book Friday and my whole weekend involved it I m a nosy bit so I kept leaving it to Google things that come up in the story The author did an amazing job of her research She was spot on everything that I had questions about This book is so very dark though I had several times that I had to leave it alone because I honestly felt so creeped out that I felt like I was being watched.I m not going to go into the story line because really you should read this book Dark magic, witchcraft [...]

    Disappointing The woo woo spookiness was captivating for about 200 pages, but then it just went on and on and my eyes began to roll with boredom Wasn t intrigued by Cordova never fully believed McGrath would team up with two amateurs thought it was oh so convenient how one clue always seemed to lead directly to another scoffed when I learned who now runs The Peak and McGrath never discovered that when he apparently could discover what someone ate for breakfast and double scoffed when massive ele [...]

    Night Film received a lot of hype even before its publication, being the sopho effort of Marisha Pessl, who came to fame with her 2006 debut Special Topics in Calamity Physics I haven t read it but remember it being well received by the critics and gaining some popularity with the readers, which wasn t bad for a first try Ms Pessl s second book was surrounded by quite a lot of hype even before its publication, with readers impatiently awaiting the day of its release Well, now the book is out and [...]

    I m not one to look a gift ARC in the mouth particularly one that I was REALLY looking forward to reading but, sadly, I just can t embrace the lumbering, sprawling, epic in length though hardly in content thriller , Marisha Pessl s Night Film I d heard so many good things about Ms Pessl s first novel, Special Topics In Calamity Physics, and the premise for this novel sounded can t miss, but ultimately I was pretty disappointed, wondering why the hell the book was 600 pages long and felt twice as [...]

    I have absolutely no idea why this has so many FIVE STAR reviews Y all are tripping And all that ranting about OMG SPOILERS SUCH AN INTRICATE STRUCTURE SPOILERS Bullshit I will lay this book out for you view spoiler Remember on the X Files how the show really went off the rails when Chris Carter wanted to make it an absolutely balanced choice that everything was ALIENS magic or the GOV T CONSPIRACY science That everything could be explained by either one of those two interpretations and they wer [...]

    Night Film is Marisha Pessl s second novel and, in a nutshell, it is stunning I hope I still have plenty of excellent reads to come in 2013, but they re going to have a hell of a hard time living up to this.The protagonist of this epic, ambitious tale is Scott McGrath, formerly an extremely successful investigative journalist, whose professional reputation was destroyed when he was found to have made false allegations against Stanislas Cordova, an infamously reclusive film director He lost his j [...]
