Good adaptation of an excellent book.,

This review is from: After Dark My Sweet [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Foley's adaptation of Thompson's classic is one the best adaptations of the late great writers books out of Hollywood (and much better than any of the ones from France).
It's faithful to the book and not an especially creative adaptaion. It greatest strenght come from the original. Jason Patric and Bruce Dern put on excellent performaces. The movie also features one of the most stagely filmed sex scenes I've even seen in a mainstream flick.
