“While watching this movie I thought to myself that it was good I had already read the book. This was because the movie is agonizingly desperate and sad–often times it was just too much to absorb or handle in such a large dose. You canu0026#39;t put this movie down like you can with the book. Unlike the book being beautifully written, in an almost poetic prose, which distracted the reader from the subject, the movie is not beautifully shot. In your face is desperation, agony, and death.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI can understand why this movie was shelved for a year. Do not go into it looking to be entertained, at best look to be intellectually stimulated. This is no popcorn movie.”
