Passages from James Joyce's Finnegans Wake 1965 16mm film 90mins。
This was the first attempt to cinematize the works of Irish author James Joyce. Based more on a stage adaptation by Mary Manning than the Joyce novel itself, the film concentrates on Dublin pubkeeper Finnegan (Martin J. Kelly), who while in the throes of inebriation has a vision of his own death. As the bemused Finnegan lies in his coffin, his friends gather for his wake. The "corpse" tries to cut through the keening and platitudes by probing the innermost thoughts of those closest to him. The surprising aspect of this film is that so much of its difficult text works on screen--a tribute to the loving care of scripter/director/ editor Mary Ellen Bute, who, while preparing this film spent her waking hours picking the brains and burrowing through the resource materials of the James Joyce Society.

陆支羽 (2013-01-23)： 4.0。1.导演为此作花十年，我想其中九年应该是在着力研究原著吧。2.纵天书又何畏，梦诗意述衷情。3.十二星座群像一瞥。4.乔伊斯原著中的旁征博引由此可见一斑。5.死者被聚会惊醒，模糊了生死界。6.婚纱神游与海滩奏乐一幕，甚美。7.芬尼根守灵夜亦如孤独狂欢夜。
