Norwegian Wood Mashes Beatles, Radiohead, Revolution
The adaptation of magical realist Haruki Murakami's meditation on love, loss and The Beatles arrives stateside Jan 3rd.

Beatles geeks, Occupy populists and postmodern fiction nerds should merge sweetly, and sourly, in Norwegian Wood, director Tran Anh Hung’s adaptation of Haruki Murakami’s 1987 novel.It’s a windswept tone poem to Japan’s turbulent but liberating ’60s, set to a hypnotic score from Radiohead’s innovative guitarist Jonny Greenwood, which meshes quite magically in the trailer below with John Lennon’s coded ode to desire and detachment.Inspired by the jangle of Bob Dylan, the Rubber Soul song “Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)” is a cinematic blessing in these days of faltering Beatles cover songs in film.

Life is what happens when your busy making other plans. John Lennon
