Mediocre adaptation of a great novel,
This review is from: Complicity [VHS] (VHS Tape)
While this film version of Iain Banks dark novel is true to the plot of the book it never captures the dark brooding intensity of the book.
Johnny Miller is good as the amoral journalist Cameron Colley but direction is too low key to have the impact the book had. It also struggles to cope with the multi layering of past and present which is central to the novel.
It a shame that such a great book has been turned in to such a mediocre film.
(re posted as for some reason it had popped under a completely different film!)
