Catch-22  Hulu Empty
PostSubject: Catch-22 Hulu   Catch-22  Hulu EmptyMon May 27, 2019 1:04 am

Just finished the 6 part mini-series produced George Clooney.  It's a very good adaption of the novel.   I don't know a lot of the actors, Clooney has a small role, but  Christopher Abbott who plays John Yossarian is really outstanding.  They even managed to find some surviving B-25's so thankfully they didn't have to totally rely on CGI.  

There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one's safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind.  If one is crazy, one does not have to fly missions; and one must be crazy to fly. But one has to apply to be excused, and applying demonstrates that one is not crazy. As a result, one must continue flying, either not applying to be excused, or applying and being refused.

Arkin was great in the film. There are echo's of him with the actor in the mini-series.

Some other good characters ..  General Scheisskopf (Clooney),   Major Major Major  (parental joke, but was promoted from Lt. to Major to avoid confusion; Milo Mindbender - Entrepreneur extraodinaire, wheeling and dealing not only with the Americans, but the Germans.  Great take on the absurd and  mentally surviving war with ever-increasing bombing missions.

Loved both the book and the film. The role put Arkin on the map.

I'm going to see what were talking about with the series. tv
