Mike Nichols' "Frustrated" Adaptation of Catch-22

Kelly Cozy has some interesting thoughts on turning an unfilmable book into a confused movie.

I read both the Heller novel (and the Monarch Notes) in high school, which from the vantage point of over 30 years later means I remember preciously little of it. Apparently I read enough of it (those notes must have helped) that I didn't find the movie hard to follow, but it did leave me rather cold.
