Okay, I've watched about 1.5 hours of the movie so far - have to take a break for awhile to do some other things. There's about 45 minutes more to go.
Stanley Tucci was nominated for best supporting actor for this. I can see why. He is very good and creepy.
Unless the movie turns crappy in the next 45 minutes, I am glad I bought this, whether or not the book is that much better or not. It's a visually imaginative feast. I hope the rest of it plays out well.
But for Rach's comment above - yes, it's unsettling, though so far nothing really terrible onscreen. Our 2 granddaughters and their mom are presently living with us, and the thought of something like this happening to one of them is nightmarish.
Also: I think it's when the dad is in the mall looking for clues or persons who might have killed his daughter, but the out-of-focus man in the shop in the background playing with the home movie camera is undoubtedly Peter Jackson, IMO.
