I saw the film that was based on Elizabeth Gilbert’s book “Eat, Pray, Love” last week and I didn’t like it at all. I had approached it as mindless fluff which helped while viewing it but after seeing it I immediately thought of Mark Kermode’s short review – “Eat, Pray, Love. Vomit“.
But of course that doesn’t mean that the book itself has no worth and although I’ve not read it, what I have seen of Elizabeth Gilbert herself, I’ve liked. Including this talk on creativity that she gave to the Ted Conference a couple of years ago.
It’s very funny and insightful and I like the idea of trying to manage your creativity if it descends on you at an inconvenient time. Whether that actually works though, I don’t know. I’ll tell you when I try it!
