I far prefer the original.

We had to read Rhinoceros in AP English in high school. So delightfully bizarre. Well, of all things! I don't know why I've never watched the film. Gene Wilder is amazing in that scene, as he was in most things.

Which reminds me.

Wilder and the ending are great for sure but unfortunately I found the movie pretty lacking. It was very much like a made-for-television play with little cinematic elements. The cinematic elements that were present were largely to frame the comedic aspects of the play, which makes it part of a trend of readings that take Ionesco's ironies and cheapen them into punchline format in a way that undermines the message. That's more of a personal contention really, I'm not sure how Ionesco viewed his work or what the original performances were like.

I can easily envision how that can happen in interpreting Ionesco's very complex work. Thanks for the warning. I'd love to see a good onstage performance of the play (as challenging as that might be to produce).
