Summary: It was always going to be a hard adaptation - this is frequently funny and consistently appalling; gradually affecting but ultimately not quite up with the book in redeeming the protagonist's humanity. McEvoy is excellent and the supporting characters colourful and entertaining.
Summary: Gritty and disturbing, With a story line kind of like reading a book from the back forwards. Kept me glued to the screen the whole way through so as not to miss anything. The ending brings an unexpected twist to the story
Summary: Even so well performed too many surreal and utterly depressing scenes for me to handle. I have no idea how that movie ended up in the category of comedies.
