I have seen the movie twice and I've started the book, but I'm having trouble getting through it. I feel bad because I know I should read the book, but I already know what happens story. Can anybody fill me in on the stuff that I may be missing by not reading the book?
Itís not so much missing storyline that you will find in the book.
Itís the vivid painting of a drunk, strung out and sleep deprived brain.
There is no way you can make that justice in a movie.
Although I have to admit the casting was phenomenal.
I canít see anyone else doing a better job.
I actually saw the trailer for the movie when it came out and went straight out and bought the book.
Loved it, but didnít go to see it. It wasnít until a year later that I finally saw it, but it couldnít quite capture the strangeness.
Not spoiling anything here, but the scene with the highway patrolman was perfect.
Casting Gary Busey was a stroke of genius.
