R.I.P.: Kurt Vonnegut (1922-2007)

From Variety: "[Kurt Vonnegut's] 14 novels included races he invented, impossible sci-fi phenomena and outlandish religions. While several were adapted for films, his vivid imagination sometimes proved difficult to translate to the screen, with George Roy Hill's Slaughterhouse-Five one of the more successful attempts."

Another was Keith Gordon's under-rated Mother Night. But then, alas, there was Breakfast of Champions...
