One thought on “Sad Movies Rade

  1. Carri-ann

    It is the book that inspired everything that I have become as a writer It was honest and real in every detail It is written in a style I aspire towards Simple and easy to read but with an incredible message attached The message is not forced You slowly come to see how much it applies in just about everyone s life.The story is about a copy writer with no job satisfaction beyond the friends he meets at work, a girlfriend who wants to leave him, and a head full of suicidal thoughts A old friend the [...]

    With Sad Movies I m finally read up on the literary brat pack, a silly label from a silly article, but it helped me find literature of a similar groove after I fell in love with Less Than Zero and Bright Lights, Big City in my last year of school Our disaffected young man is named Zeke He s disappointed in life because, after spending some time partying abroad after college, he came to LA and wasn t a star screenwriter Instead he s a hack copywriter at a B film company He abandons his screenplay [...]

    This slim book was required reading for my group of friends in the early nineties, and something of an obsession of mine for several years I even wrote a screenplay, thinking I might one day try to option the book Probably a little dated now, but still a great entry in that list of books describing the ennui of being in your mid twenties in late capitalism America.

    I cared very little for privileged, good looking, suicidal Zeke, with the good looking, kind hearted actress girlfriend who he treats like shit.The novel is mostly made up of random occurrences where Zelenograd either a gets drunk b gets high c gets maudlin d quotes a song lyric from an 80s indie band e espouses fairly vacuous philosophical repartee with his boho friend f gets laid Usually it s a combination of all the above in quick succession It s clear to anyone he has a lot to live for and i [...]

    Life Is Just So Sad When Brett Easton Ellis says it s hilarious and affirmative, you know it s not

    Many, many flaws, such as IDEALISM and MELO DRAMA, but it was a good, quick read, and the first I ve read of Lindquist s, and his first book, so hopefully he got a little less sentimental with his other books I may read because he was at least fairly funny and did have a sort of B.E.E vibe going on except that his characters can t help but be sympathetic and empathetic and a lot less sociopathic.

    Debauchery Thoughts of suicide Sophomoric Ho effen hum There was some resolution in the end but otherwiserget it.

  8. Ricky

    Decent book for this debut from Lindquist I expected better after it was a recommendation from Easton Ellis Kind of juvinle in perspective to him, but a decent quick read nonetheless.
