From my review in Taki's Magazine:
Never Let Me Go: Tea Time for Organ Harvesters Although the movie industry is always accused of philistinism, filmmakers are often suckers for prestige novels. Richard Grenier, Commentary's renegade movie reviewer in the 1980s, pointed out a common type of bad classy movie: the credulous adaptation that inadvertently exposes a polished prose stylist's underlying silliness. Projecting an author's vision onto a 30-foot-high screen can expose his lack of realism. The most amusing recent example is Never Let Me Go, the dead-serious adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro's acclaimed 2005 novel. (It's now out on DVD in the US and in theaters in the UK.)
