'Atlas Shrugged'

The book: Ayn Rand's novel is a touchstone for libertarians and remains wildly popular today. Why it's unfilmable: It's a novel of ideas -- characters deliver speeches that can run for 60 pages. The movie: "Let's say you know the novel, you agree with Ayn Rand, you're an objectivist or a libertarian, and you've been waiting eagerly for this movie. Man, are you going to get a letdown." -- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times "Ayn Rand's monumental 1,168-page, 1957 novel gets the low-budget, no-talent treatment and sits there flapping on screen like a bludgeoned seal." -- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone Twentieth Century Fox
