Wakefield, Pellington and company have much to be proud of here. Hopefully, their work will show other filmmakers that classic books can become winning films, when talented artists respect the integrity of the source.
The camera dances through the imaginations of our heroes with MTV-ish images, and the soundtrack calls up lingering post-World War II tunes mixed with emerging rock 'n' roll to create a bizarre atmosphere that suits Wakefield's material well.
