Like in the Movies

Does the end of Book II scream “Made for the Big Screen!” to you?  Native Son movie

Bigger hearing the sirens and making his way to the roof top…

Bigger telling himself he wants to die without shame…

Bigger belting the man’s head with the barrel of his gun…

Bigger running across rooftops and climbing the water tank…

Bigger tossing the tear gas canister off the tank…

Bigger knocked off the water tank by the force of the fire house.

Bigger being dragged down the stairs…

Bigger passing out…

The last pages of the novel are just right for an action-packed movie sequence.

Have any of you watched a cinematic retelling of Wright’s story?
