Inspired By Greek Literature: List For Week Ending October 29, 2017

Our films this week are all inspired by Greek literature. Some films are direct adaptations (Zorba The Greek), while others simply transplant elements from the source material into another story (O Brother, Where Art Thou?). Either way, Greek literature produces fine cinema.

This is not intended as an all-inclusive list. Reader suggestions are welcome. If you know an addition to this list, please write using the comments below.

I want to thank Ivan Walters for his list addition of Chi-Raq. The software would not allow me to add his name after the link to my review of the film, which is why this acknowledgement appears outside of the list. I appreciate your suggestion and hope to hear from you again.
