A very pretentious fuck
Very good, but I couldn't not see how much better it could have been if it was less condensed.
Had they taken the same direction as, say, the first half of The Pianist, and were more fluid with the progress of time, they could have hit that note about how things get normalized gradually but also very quickly.
I liked the change they did to the ending. I thought the book took a bit of a cowerdly shortcut and the show slightly improves on it (despite a still rushed third act)
