child of god (movie)

It was a Cormac McCarthy kind of weekend. This was a better adaptation of the novel than the movie we watched on Thanksgiving, but was nowhere near the level of No Country for Old Men or The Road. A number of key scenes were left out, which was rather disappointing, but at least the movie came in under two hours (you know how I feel about long movies). My biggest complaint, though, was the way in which the main character spoke–I couldn’t understand a word he was saying.

My rating: 3.5/5
