“The Shock Doctrine” Adaptation Divided

shock23.jpgAn intellectual match made in heaven has divided as Naomi Klein appears to have distanced herself from Michael Winterbottom‘s adaptation of her nonfiction book, “The Shock Doctrine.”

“[W]e had different ideas about how to tell this story and build the argument,” Klein explained in an interview with the Independent. The documentary will air on September 1 in the U.K., on the More4 channel. Winterbottom has directed many films, including “24 Hour Party People” and “The Road to Guantanamo.” In 2010, he will release an adaptation of Jim Thompson‘s dark novel, “The Killer Inside Me.”

Here’s more from the article: “Winterbottom’s work … has led to such insurmountable creative tensions that Klein, who originally came on board to narrate the film and act as a consultant, does not appear in the credits as a writer or consultant, or act as its narrator. A source at Channel 4 said the writer was so disappointed with Winterbottom’s vision of her book.” (Via NY Times)
