This did not grab me, whereas the original did.

Gorgeous and brilliantly performed as it is, Mildred Pierce's languid pacing and strict adherence to James M. Cain's novel might have been an admirable concept, but doesn't necessarily make for good cinema and possibly even worse television.

Haynes's Mildred Pierce finally seems like the most elaborately produced critical close reading of a novel of all time.

What can you say about an HBO miniseries adapted from a 1941 novel that follows the rise and fall of an independent woman during the Great Depression? Let's try "perfection," which is what director Todd Haynes achieves in his loyal, lyrical adaptation.

[Haynes'] painstaking effort to restore every brushstroke of the author's original story paints over the ambiguities of class and social ambition that play out within the Pierce family dynamic.

The miniseries is far more faithful to the tawdry class shenanigans of Cain's novel than any of the author's characters are to each other.
