Terse Movie Review – Misery, dir. by Rob Reiner

As great a movie as Misery is, it’s overall quality seems to flow from two things:

  1. William Goldman’s adaptation of Stephen King’s novel; and,
  2. The performances.

The one thing it’s overall quality doesn’t flow from:

  1. Rob Reiner’s completely bland and uninteresting direction.

I mourn the loss of the movie this would have made had somebody with a flair for the material – i.e. Brian Depalma – directed it instead of wasting his time on crap like The Bonfire of the Vanities.
