Secret History adaptations not waiting for Hollywood

The film rights to Donna Tartt’s The Secret History have passed through at least two hands, and the project seems to have stalled in yet another circle of Hollywood hell for the past few years. Meanwhile, it looks like some Belgian kids with a camcorder have filmed an homage (above) to the novel’s climax and set it to a Sufjan Stevens song.

Also, I’ve mentioned it before, but don’t miss this clip from a (slightly ridiculous) German mini-documentary about Tartt.
