Chapter 27

Rated R 100 minutes 2008

Such are the lengths to which an excessive admiration for J.D. Salinger can carry one. Jared Leto is simultaneously fascinating and monotonous –- like a voice from the bottom of a well -– as Mark David Chapman, the deranged loner who shot and killed former Beatle John Lennon in New York in 1980, after receiving “instructions” from Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye. At least he didn’t then go on to become a book reviewer. Writer-director Jarrett Schaefer’s screenplay suffers a bit in comparison to, say, that of I Shot Andy Warhol. Costarring Lindsay Lohan and Judah Friedlander (84 min.).
