I finally got around to watching the film version of the Pulitzer winning William Kennedy novel via requesting on DVD. While the acting is good, the film is ungodly long--like 2 and a half hrs long, and this is even more remarkable considering the novel is only like 70K words.

And while there are good moments, these moments are due to the novel, which is a great one. The film is merely ok and could have benefited by some serious editing.
