An excellent adaptation of Iain Banks' novel,
By A Customer
This review is from: Complicity [DVD] (DVD)
This is a top notch adaptation of one of Iain Banks' "dark" novels. Given the graphic nature of some the sex and violence in the novel, which would have been very difficult to present in a film, the makers have kept very true to the spirit of the book.
Several of the cast were in the adaptation of The Crow Road, another Banks novel, and overall the cast is well balanced.
The sound problem experienced by VHS users is much less noticeable with the DVD when using a suitable Dolby Pro-logic TV system.
This is a tight well fashioned drama that is gripping throughout. It is a production of the highest quality, achieved on a tight budget, which will appeal both to fans of Banks' work and to lovers of compelling psychological dramas. As with much of Banks' work, it does not pull its punches. Highly recommended.
