  • Parker has honored the core of the work and in the process turned a great memoir into a memorable movie.

  • If Parker had aimed more at capturing the author's unique voice, and worried less about getting the details right, his movie might have been extraordinary as well.

  • Lacks the humor and charm that fills the book and makes it so much more than a catalog of suffering.
