I'll take your advice and wait until after the movie before reading the book. Shame that the movie was a lost opportunity but so many films-of-the-book are. I still plan on watching it all the same. Any major changes in the movie?

I don't think there's any major changes, and if I hadn't read the booked I'm sure I'd liked the movie better. And you really should see it - I will buy the DVD for sure, and it's money well spend especially if you like the genre. Only part that makes me feel dissapointed is the pictures I have inside my head of how it "should" have been.

Also - even though I like Nick Cave, I think his soundtrack was a bit dull, and not eerie enough.
Do not be quick to reveal judgment. Hidden judgment is often more potent. It can guide reaction whose effects are felt only when too late to divert them.
