I love the novel and the movie. Sadly, I did not get to see it theatrically as it had a one week run in my town.
Is it the book? No. No movie will ever be the book and vice versa. It is silly to think like that. It conveys the same story of bleakness in a bold, unforgiving way. Hurt is stunning in this film.
I was looking to capture a rough fatalism. He is complicit outwardly but that inner rage against the machine is burning within.
