Netflix does "Hold the Dark": William Giraldi's novel on the screen, directed by Jeremy Saulnier
I don't watch too many movies these days (kids and work and all) but I am hoping to catch the screen adaptation of William Giraldi's Hold the Dark, which was released on Netflix yesterday. The novel is outstanding, in my opinion, and betrays the author's deeply Catholic imagination, though he may not care to admit it.
What am I talking about? For those interested, I'll re-up two pieces I wrote when I first read the novel a few years back:
-My initial take for this blog
-My essay for Dappled Things, which won third place in their 2017 non-fiction contest
I have a few book reviews forthcoming--stay tuned! When they run I will post links here.
