I recall the pure evil of the child in this film. Henry constructed a dummy to throw over a bridge and kill drivers. He tortures his cousin Mark. The film disturbed me because I couldn't erase the notion that a child could be so malicious and tormenting. The movie is also very well done.
This book was okay, and in saying "okay" I mean that it didn't live up to "How To Kill a Rock Star" for me. It's a completely different story with completely different characters, but it went pretty sloooooooow. It took almost 3/4 of the book for something exciting to happen... and the ending made me angry. Read at your discretion...
Man, this book was terrific. It's a sort of collage of all different writings about Bee Thousand: some from fans, some from friends of the band, some from the likes of Bob Pollard and Tobin Sprout. There's an author who writes parts in between to connect everything as well. I know far too much about Guided by Voices for my own good (mostly from reading James Greer's book about the band and also obsessively trying to track down everything they've ever recorded), but I learned quite a bit from this book. It was fascinating to see what different people get out of a record that isn't really "about" anything but has still come to mean something to a whole lot of people. A lot of fans seem to project their own memories and shades of meaning into the lyrics, which absolutely convinced me that Bob "de de de de de de de/kicker of elves" Pollard is probably the most brilliant lyricist of our time. I can't listen to "Goldheart Mountaintop Queen Directory" anymore without picturing Pollard looking into a mirror while tripping on acid and seeing his son's face. I was very glad that the author didn't try to literally decode Pollard's lyrics but took a more imagistic approach to analyzing them.
