And I realize it's meant to be, yes, but there you have it.
Parts of it are truly difficult to watch. Again, it's good sometimes to engage with art that disturbs you, but I wish I'd been warned.
Haven't read the books, so I can't comment on the adaptation itself.
It's a beautiful movie cinematically and has a brilliant score.
There's not much more I can say for it. I'd never watch it again, and I have no desire to read the book now either. ::shrug::
I guess on the whole this movie turned me off.
