I know I saw the movie _Cutter's Way_ many years ago, but I had to move it to the top of my Netflix queue and compare it to the book. I have to say that, even though I know this film is well-regarded, it was a real disappointment after reading the book. So much of the story was changed, that the movie really bears little connection to the book and it was a really dissatisfying experience.

**************** Really intense book. Brilliant dialogue. So many writers far short on it. Did you notice how the movie copied some of the great lines almost verbatim? I thought the movie started out well, being fairly faithful to the book, and then progressively degraded into a ridiculous clusterfuck.
