Ulysses

The Oscar winning 1967 version of Joyce's book. A great way to get a handle on the basic idea of the plot and setting.

Bloom

A more recent version of Joyce's book. It's in color and gives much more attention to the raunchy episodes of the novel (e.g., compare Molly Bloom here to Molly Bloom in the earlier version).
