Share via Email Hollywood so routinely butchers everyone's favourite books that when it manages to get things even half right, it should be cause for universal celebration, perhaps even wild rejoicing in the streets. This thought is occasioned by the release of High Fidelitya movie that isn't quite as good as the book, but is still very, very entertaining.
Get out the noisemakers now. Unlike last year's The End Of The Affair, which inexplicably sabotaged the Catholic under-pinnings of Graham Greene's great novel, or The Talented Mr Ripley, which foolishly jettisoned Patricia Highsmith's calculating psychopath in favour of Matt Damon's petulant nerd, High Fidelity is religiously faithful to the spirit of Nick Hornby's wonderful novel, even though the setting has shifted from London to Chicago. Nothing in the entertainment industry is more miraculous than a great book that does not get turned into an unwatchable movie.
It is almost enough to restore one's faith in a caring, loving God.

For people who are not familiar with Hornby's novel - and you should all be ashamed of yourselves - High Fidelity tells the story of a loveable London loser who is having trouble letting go of his fading youth. The owner of an unprofitable record shop that specialises in rarities, bootlegs and the types of little-known recordings whose ownership identifies one as a high priest of the counter-cultural elect, Rob is the sort of ageing adolescent who can never forgive his girlfriend for deliberately, pre-meditatedly listening to Art Garfunkel records, and worse, actually professing to like them.
While it is true that listening to Art Garfunkel records is one of the worst cultural transgressions for which a human being can be held accountable, it's not on a par with murdering innocent women or children or putting cats in the microwave or even listening to Billy Joel records, so gradually Rob has to face up to the fact that his endless list-making and star-ranking and trotting out of rock arcana is a tad juvenile. Moreover, he has to realise that his determination to remain a ranking member of a microscopic cabal of male rock cognoscenti his employees, a few pathetic customers is severely hampering his social life.
Seeking to come to terms with his myriad personality disorders, Rob sets out to reconstruct all of the relationships he has had in his adult life, hoping to pinpoint why each of them went wrong. Ultimately he must come to accept that it is possible to fall in love with a woman who cannot tell Neil Young from Neil Sedaka, and to recognise that endlessly dreaming up new ways to organise his record collection is not the most direct route to developing human potential.
In short, while it's nice to know when Nick Drake died, and even who Nick Drake was, it's better to have a girlfriend. High Fidelity is faithful to the twin strands that run through Hornby's novel. As in the book, the funniest parts of the movie deal with music, the least funny parts with women.
