Books vs. films|

It has been done in movies, by Kurosawa back in the 50s when he made Rashomon. This movie compares the testimonies of four characters about a rape and murder.
And another more modern example is The Usual Suspects, where the narrator deliberately mis-tells the story.

Haven't seen either, but will probably now have to.

The Usual Suspects is currently sitting on the DVD rack in the living room, as it's a favorite of mine. Rashomon is somewhere on my Netflix que, I think. If not, I can add it and bump it to the top if you're interested.
(Can we watch Usual Suspects together? I haven"t seen it in a bit.)

I request permission to be there in spirit, because Usual Suspects is a pretty great movie.

Oh, what the heck -- come visit! We live in the same state; you can't possibly be more than a 16-hour drive away ...

I think we live as far as possible away from you while still being in CA, and the drive from our place is no more than 10 hours. ;-)

Well, yes, but if the only given piece of information was that both parties lived in California, there would exist the possibility that they lived at opposite vertical ends of the state. ;-)
YAY! I *knew* you liked the movie; I seem to remember you talking about it once.
Definitely watch Rashomon together, because the conversation afterwards will be interesting.
