the movie doesn't do the book justice
I just read the book and I have to say, Fincher didn't do all that great on the adaptation. I watched the cut movie on Spike TV (they had to cut like an hours worth of content out of it) and thought the movie was pretty hardcore. Then I saw the uncut movie on DVD and thought the movie was really hardcore. Then I read the book and thought OMG! This guy is effing insane!! I gotta tell ya, the book is my favorite. Sorry Dave.
