James & Glass

About Last Night’s Our Girl in Chicago makes the case that Lost in Translation recalls the works of Henry James “in both narrative strategy and temperament.”

TMFTML points to The Antic Muse’s article about the Stephen Glass movie:

[A]ccording to the film’s writer-director, Billy Ray, Shattered Glass is “bigger than journalism”—it’s about “right and wrong.” Reviewers and critics have generally bought into this point of view, agreeing that Shattered Glass is, if not “bigger than journalism,” still about journalism’s big issues: It “puts journalistic ethics on trial,” according to blurb-whore repeat offender Peter Travers. Rex Reed raves (does he ever not?) that it “will teach you something about ethics gone awry.”
