The Kidnapping Of Michel Houellebecq
In 2011, acclaimed novelist Michel Houellebecq disappeared. Given his politically conservative leanings and his often argumentative and incendiary prose, theories circulated about his life being threatened and in jeopardy. Houellebecq eventually surfaced of his own volition, but there is now a film to fill in those blanks, “The Kidnapping Of Michel Houellebecq." What tickles most about this diverting new movie is that it appears no one was more amused by the theories than Houellebecq himself.
