RARA-AVIS: This World, Then the Fireworks

From: Dave ( davezelt@attbi.com)

A faithful but unsatisfying movie version of Jim Thompson's fierce novella, 'This World, Then the Fireworks' is on the Starz Mystery Channel tonight (9:30 EST).

BTW. I ended up buyying the newly released DVD 'Coup de torchon'
(adaptation of Pop. 1280). The alternative ending that Bertrand Tavernier wanted to use was bizarre to say the least. Fortunately he ran out of money and couldn't film it to his satisfaction. The ending he was forced to go with (IMHO) is much, much better.
