On The Dead Cannot Consent

I adored the book, and I know I'll see the movie (I'll be hate-watching it), but I do think the Wallace estate had to make a statement of some sort, lest some weirdos think this is an Office David Foster Wallace Biography of some sort.

I think the book worked whether or not you knew anything or cared anything about Wallace, which is why the movie is sort of a no-brainer: it's a buddy story about smart neurotic people on the precipice of big things. Who wouldn't want to see a film like that?
