Also, are Goodis and Williford's heroes really psychotic?

************** Not all of them. Goodis's protagonist in SHOOT THE PIANO PLAYER doesn't appear crazy to me. He has simply chosen to withdraw from society. As far as Willeford, I don't think that the protagonist in WILD WIVES, COCKFIGHTER, and the one with the Miami cop or detective was crazy, but I think that THE BURNT ORANGE HERESY guy was over the edge.

And no, I don't like the idea of movies entering the study of literature.
