Trivia:
This was passed for cinema in March 1967 and thus became the first film in the UK to feature the word "fuck". Marianne Faithfull's single use of the word in the film I'll Never Forget What's'isname (1967) would follow 3 months later.See more »

I think this is the best they could do with the material, 21 February 2000
Author: Matthew Caverhill (writingy) from Canada

Ulysses as a film should in no way be compared with the novel, for they are two entirely different entities. However, that being said, the film still manages to maintain many of the elements that made the book work, but since it is a visual medium, it is more difficult to pull of stream-of-consciousness. I think this is the best film they could have made with the material... and this is from someone that routinely rants about films not being like their literary counterparts. I recommend the book, but the movie is still entertaining.
