Is it unrealistic to even attempt to make a movie?

I, personally, think that the rape scene could be done in such a way that shows Covenant's "temporary insanity". It would be easier to stomach if there were a flash-foward of a Raver before hand - although that would mess with the timeline, but it would ease the shock of it.

Certainly there have been films made with Fouler protagonists, that I believe a Covenant movie or series would be possible, it just requires a director who understands how to portray mental illness in a suitable fashion - of which there are a few, and Covenant is definitely in the realms of mental illness for that short period.


I completely agree and I think the finer point on depicting appropriately mental illness is brilliant. It can be done .. Im thinking of that tv show Legion where this kid is diagnosed with schizophrenia .. well he turned out not to be schizophrenic .. but the interplay was well done. If a director depicts the interplay between TCs thoughts, memories (all relevant ones, life, marriage, kid, leprosy, 2 teenage girls in mini-skirts, self-loathing, everyone else loathing of him and especially him as a leper)... Legion did a good job of working in the conflux of all these conflicting thoughts, memories and emotions.

Cheers Forestal LOL

With the making of Band of Brothers.. The Pacific and of course
Game of Thrones a set of mini-series could bring all
the books to the small screen...

HBO anybody??
