    "Good movie, but as always, book was way better."

    Not to get sidetracked, but there are many, many cases where the movie is better than the book (insofar as they can be compared.) In a lot of cases, in fact, a movie so overshadows its book version that most people don't even know that it was based on a book (see: "Rififi," "Vertigo," "Touch of Evil," "The Graduate," "Contempt," "The Manchurian Candidate," "Paths of Glory," "Nights of Cabiria," etc.) Most halfway objective viewers (ie, those who don't systematically prefer the novel form of storytelling over the cinematic form of storytelling) who have read the books and seen the films of those stories think that the film versions are significantly superior. Slightly more controversially, the films of "The Godfather," "The Shining," "Purple Noon," "The Postman Always Rings Twice," "The Silence of the Lambs," "Double Indemnity," "The Maltese Falcon," among others, are significantly better than their novel counterparts.

    3rd Sofia Coppola movie Iam watching. This one's not great as Somewhere or Lost in Translation, but definitely has traces of Sofia Coppola's filmmaking written all over it. I was surprised to see that bits of the film and its narrative style reminded me of Wes Anderson style storytelling. The movie keeps you engaged till the end. Good original score, cinematography makes this movie watchable. 7/10. 3 years 9 months ago
