           Appears they did change the period, from 90s to 50s. Interesting.

Read the book ages ago, wasn't expecting an adaptation (kind of like Inherent Vice), not sure what to expect but I think I don't want to go back to the book until after.

My memory of it is a bit hazy at this point. I feel like most of his New York setting novels back then were more specifically about the place while open ended on the time, though they probably favor a certain period.

Maybe a little disappointing. Maybe I'm tainted by knowledge of Norton's compulsion to rewrite everything he touches.

could be a symptom of terrible trailer, great movie,...or bad trailer, worse movie...THOUGH Thom Yorke seems attached to it on an original level, so that's not nothing

Definitely a bit long, Frank's wife and the plotline with Cannavale's character doesn't really need exist, and it was a bit more convoluted than it needed to be, but otherwise very good.

Saw it yesterday and agree. Liked the Chinatown vibe of it. 7/10

Great cast. Dug the music. Even the Thom Yorke song flows nicely and i normally hate modern music in period pieces.

Felt kinda indulgent though. Norton clearly gave alot of himself to this project and it shows. He's pretty much trying to make his version of Chinatown, but this never quite pops.
