All things Joyce
27 February 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

John Huston's final film as director was the elegiac adaptation of Joyce's short story, The Dead. It starred his daughter Angelica Huston who also presents this documentary on Irish writer James Joyce.

Huston looks into his life and also examines his writings which can be difficult to comprehend. There are contributions from fans and other Irish writers such as Edna O'Brien.

Joyce might be regarded as one of Ireland's finest writers, yet as I discovered his books were out of place in the independent Ireland. Too mucky in what was a conservative Catholic country.

Joyce came from a poor background, his father was an alcoholic yet he went to a top school. He discovered sex, visiting the red light area of Dublin. He rejected religion and found passion with Nora Barnacle, a chambermaid from Galway.

In his final years he had to flee the Nazis and ended up in Switzerland.

Huston is a fan of Joyce. She grew up in Ireland and enjoyed being involved in the making of The Dead.

If you know nothing about Joyce then this documentary is a good start.
