      Glenn Fleshler should be the Judge but I'd take Chalamet as the Kid. He doesn't need to put some amazing performance in it, just be there and then get raped to death by the Judge in the end which his twink ass should be accustomed to by now.

          I'm aware but if they cast Chalamet, they'd have to go with the assrape-to-death ending. like that one gore anime scene I watched back in 2011.

          You were filtered. Firstly the ending is ambiguous for the kid, secondly everything written in the book up to that point suggests the kid is killed by the Judge.

          Child rape/murder is something that the Judge is linked to throughout, and then additionally the kid has a "showdown" with the Judge shortly before where he rejects his philosophy and belittles him.

          Don't even try saying the Judge was a metaphor. He is clearly a being with a physical body throughout the book.

      McCarthy never describes the protagonist doing any of the vile shit that is done by the gang.

      Which is easily translated to screen by just not showing the kid during any of the massacres etc.
      Iirc the kid takes active part in a few things, at least one time the gang are run out of a town, I think when one of them is knifed in a bar and several of them run out into the street firing on everybody

          Anonymous

          The entire story is the kid being member of the gang but not fully devoted to the cause
          In a metaphysical sense
          The judge wins the souls of every man but one
          Every man gives himself to the cause of war and death, but the kid doesn't
          That's why the kid is not mentioned in the first massacre of the indians except at one point iirc - a wounded gang member steps towards him and the kid goes to help him, but glanton shoots him instead
          Another time where the kid is charged with executing another wounded gang member, but lets him live
          I'm sure the kid was there and doing bad things, but the fact that he's left out of the descriptive narrative suggests that his heart is not in it the way the rest of the gang's are

    I read about production of a BM film earlier this year. I really doubt it will translate well, too many descriptions of landscapes and talks around campfires. The book does have a cinematic quality thanks to the detached perspective, but it's too prose heavy for a visual medium.

    If they ever do adapt it I hope they actually cast The Judge to look like he's described in the novel instead of how he's always depicted in art. People always draw him like some brawny, masculine guy who's plainly psychotic even though he's described as being fat and having innocent, childlike features in the novel. The depiction in the novel is a lot more striking and creates a better contrast with his actions than just having him be a bald, tall Joker with black eyes.

    The only time it could've been adapted was before it was even written. Pussy homosexuals would lose their shit at a fraction of the content in the book if they even had the attention span to read it. Even then it would probably get banned and labeled something on the level of the Turner Diaries.

    If it can't be done or portrayed properly to every detail then it's not even worth ideating about, given how desperate these studios are for more IP to adapt and ruin.

                Still the best McCarthy adaptation. McCarthy doesn't believe this unadaptable horseshit pedelled by fricking pseuds and trusted the guy with his work and him alone.

      I watched this movie. Amazing stuff. Hillcoat is the guy. He just needs to cast Glenn Fleshler as The Judge. The rest of the cast could be whatever but the Judge needs to be perfect. If done right and on a small enough budget, BD could be fricking massive. Zoomers already latched on to it, some stealth marketing and a good enough movie is possible for a success.

        The Glanton gang gets butchered by the Yuma Indians, the only ones who survive get hanged and then you have the Kid who gets raped and murdered by the Judge in an outhouse. The Judge himself is a supernatural being, likely an Archon, easily painted as literal white devil. It's just crazy enough to work.

I'm not saying nothing happened in the Jake's it's just possible to me that the man wasn't raped as most seem to think. I think the judge was in the outhouse with the girl that went missing and showed the man 1 last evil before parting ways.

              Depending on who you ask, The Judge could be the antichrist, the ubermensch, the physical manifestation of human evil, or an archon servant of the demiurge. There just isn't a universal consensus on what Blood Meridian is about. Personally, though, the most compelling reading of The Judge is that he represents the human tendency to intellectualize and control. When we, as human beings, speak about the world, we partition it arbitrarily. We take the noumenal and divide it into distinct regions, when, yes, there is unironically a universal oneness in creation. An apple tree is not necessarily distinct from an apple, and both the apple and the apple tree are not necessarily distinct from the earth, or the air around it, since the apple tree needed nutrients from the earth and the air to grow the apple. They are intrinsically inseparable parts of a whole, but yet through language, we say that they're separate implicity.

              The Judge represents the human tendency to describe the world through the arbitrary cladistics of language. It's why he's a scientist and a lawyer, as both are professions that attempt to shunt linguistic models onto reality. As The Judge tells Toadvine, he aims to become the "suzerain of the earth" and control it, allowing nothing to be "autonomous", mirroring the human tendency to be fearful of the unknown, and to want to subjugate it with logic and language.

This has been going on throughout history, with the violence on the western frontier, the "blood meridian", only being the latest iteration of this primordial cycle of violence and subjugation.

              The judge's path is impossible. The world is too chaotic and inherently disordered to allow humans to know the world and become the "suzerains of the earth." The judge seems to know this, and perhaps even knows the consequences of the ideology he espouses, but doesn't care. This is what he monologues in the Anasazi Ruins,
              >"The way of the world is to bloom and to flower and die but in the affairs of men there is no waning and the noon of his expression signals the onset of night. His spirit is exhausted at the peak of its achievement. His meridian is at once his darkening and the evening of his day."

              tl;dr (I know, I know, "r-REDDIT!" Shut up Black person) The Judge is the human capacity to classify and control.

    >but but how do you do the gore
    Not a problem
    The problem is how you adapt the descriptive passages that envelope the story
    I honestly don't think it would be that hard to do, provided you made it a miniseries
    It would have to be one of those pretentious artistic pieces, spend a lot of time with zero dialogue, men riding through austere landscapes that go from beautiful to terrible to altogether something else entirely

    the violence, the budget nor the run time would be the primary issue, it would be depicting Indians as the savages they were and the ambiguous ending which is a no go for any sizable budget

    The only reason why one would make a BM movie is because it's BM. The fact of it being itself is the meme. Dead on arrival. Let it remain vaporware.

    anyone read "my confession: recollections of a rogue" that BM was based on?

    >this book is LE EDGY

    Then you read it and the dark and edgy parts are just some ethnic cleansing and the judge is an implied pedophile. I swear this book must've been covered by some YouTube troony who's fed everyone lines to repeat ad nauseum

    The Man (aka The Kid) rapes and kill the little girl in the outhouse after he can't get it up with the prostitute.
    After he warns the other guy not to go inside.

    The Kid is responsible for the little girls disappearances throughout the book.
