Musings on Infinite Jest

Ghost Town FTW! (“for the win!”)

I saw Ghost Town by myself last night, and I get the feeling whoever wrote it either has or should read Infinite Jest.  Ghost Town is a crude caricature of Jest’s paranormal premises.  Crude, caricaturish…but very funny and very moving.  I didn’t think it was possible, but it has surpassed Stepbrothers in my mind as The Best Movie of 2008.  It might have even earned an instant inclusion in my Top Three Favorite Movies of All Time, alongside The Jerk and Groundhog Day.  Ricky Gervais, Mrs. David Duchovny (David, my birthday buddy, read Infinite Jest if you haven’t!), and Greg Kinnear all deserve a role in whatever film version of Jest gets made.
