The End of The Tour and The Infinite Jest?⏰🀑

I bought the 2015 movie 'The End of the Tour' starring Jason Segel playing 'Infinite Jest' author David Foster Wallace, who was/is one of my favourite authors.
I could have rented it for $4.99 or buy it for $12.99, so I bought it.
And while I have owned and read a lot of Wallace's books and short stories, I have never gotten around to reading the book I have had sitting on my bookshelf for years and which he is most famous for writing, 'Infinite Jest':-)
1001 Books That You Must Read Before You Die?
I might not get to read it before I die either, the way things are going in my book reading, as 
'Infinite Jest' is right near the end of '1001 Books That You Must Read Before You Die' and I'm reading them (the ones that interest me that is) in chronological order:-(
I may have to bump 
'Infinite Jest' to the front of my reading list sooner, rather than later, if I'm to actually read it in my lifetime.
The End of the Tour
'The End of the Tour' wasn't as good as the reviews of the movie led me to believe it would be, but I still liked it and will probably watch it a few more times before I die ... hopefully.
I wouldn't even have known about this movie if I hadn't have looked up to see what movies and TV shows Jason Segel had starred in, after I had seen him in 'Dispatches from Elsewhere'.
