  • Stumbles and sometimes falls on its top-heavy ambitions. But there are also flashes of visual brilliance and performances, especially from Haley and Crudup, that drill deep into the novel's haunted soul. show more

  • Part conscious and part unconscious, Watchmen tells us of a world without hope and then makes us wonder if we're already living in it. show more
