I’ve got a post up at Generation Bubble about online education disintermediating adjunct professors and superfluous graduate students. I was once one of those superfluous graduate students, accepted into a program at a state school basically to ease the teaching load on the professors—who were accordingly cynical for the most part about my potential for performing useful scholarship. I regard the whole experience as a trap that I fell into, so that may explain some of the bitterness in my tone. A lot of people have ended up in English departments who would have preferred to be doing social science of some sort, with perhaps more disciplinary rigor, but instead they ended up having to write dissertations in which half their energy was spent justifying the tortuous methodology that allowed them to do sociology via a few randomly chosen poets.

An adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel The Road will be released on October 16th in theaters. The film stars Viggo Mortenson, Robert Duvall, Charlize Theron, and Guy Pearce as survivors amidst a wasteland caused by an unknown natural disaster, and centers on the story of a man (Mortenson) and his young son (Kodi Smit-McPhee) as they trek the desolate landscape. Their journey is not devoid of hazard as they must escape the clutches of cannibalistic tribesmen. Monochromatic and dirty, The Road‘s barren visuals have a distinct numbing effect. Hillcoat gives The Road an undeniably haunting and biting realism.

"Mystery writer Arthur B. Reeve's influence in this film doesn't follow convention -- it follows his invention.
