Ultimately, the film fails because of Silver's fears of offending the audience, the same fear that Wright himself faced and overcame.

The movie understands that the story really is about the killer's point of view. It is not the story of a crime, not a docudrama, not a sociological essay.

The film makers haven't listened to Wright. They appear to have been aiming at the same genteel audience that insists on seeing something sentimental and upbeat even in a television movie-of-the-week about AIDS.

Transforms the novel into an all-too-genteel crime story, denuded of rage, devoid of social and historic context.

Unfortunately, drama translates as melodrama and speechy, preachy dialogue tells us we're watching something that's good for us.
