    It’s rather interesting that Voyner writes, “I never felt Atlas was the right project for Perelman — he’s a very visual, artsy, poetic director, and Atlas Shrugged, for what literary merits it does have, is hardly poetic; it’s a rationale for and description of a philosophy within the form of a novel.”

    I’m rather bummed that Perelman isn’t on that ship any more precisely *because* he’s so “visual, artsy,” and “poetic,” qualities that would make the perfect counter-balance to a story that IS largely a “rationale for and description of a philosophy” (though that description is a little over simplified, IMO.) Who sez that philosophy can’t be be visual, artsy and poetic on the big screen?

    But I guess that’s that for a film adaptation, though Voyner seems to agree with your opinion that it would make a far better TV mini-series. (BTW, did you catch the comments beneath Voyner’s post?)

    Someone on Youtube has been turning John Galt’s speech into a movie of sorts, and so far its fantastic.
