Saw the midnight showing at the Landmark with Joe, Laura, Elissa, and Keith. It was a mixed bag. The movie is butt-numbingly long, and it was already late. It was, as expected, very visual and very true to the comic's style. They monkeyed with the ending so it would work as a movie. The B-List stars did a good job and gave it an almost indy feel. It would be hard for this movie to translate to mainstream sucess though. It was brutal in some of its noir and unflinchingly rated R. I found it a compelling story though and well worth it.
