    It's crazy how Wright would go along with his work being boiled-down to this..

    I saw this on late-night a month or so ago. Could only SMH at the bastardization of the novel that took Bigger's character in a totally different direction than Wright's vision.

    As for Wright, himself, he took the money and ran.

    Pretty bad rendition. But it can't take away from the book.
