Writers on Film

What’s your favorite movie about writers or writing?

I’m watching End of the Tour about David Foster Wallace. I’m going to have to finally read Infinite Jest aren’t I? I’m on pace to exceed my 52 books in 2018 reading goal, so this seems like as good a time as any to tackle it.

One of my all time favorites is Midnight in Paris. It’s visually beautiful. I’ve had a lifelong love of Woody Allen movies (although now I know him to be a monster). I’m also obsessed with 1920s American expatriates in Paris.

A sort of campy and fun favorite, which I feel like no one has seen is My Alibi. It’s about a mystery writer with an extraordinarily vivid imagination and the enigmatic woman he meets. It stars Tom Selleck and Paulina Porizkova. If you can find it, watch it.
