Finally finished watching Mystic River tonight. Call me moderately impressed. Didn't like it as much as Million Dollar Baby (which totally deserved to win the Oscar over that bloated crud called The Aviator.) Very dark, very brooding--also very quiet. I swear I had to have the volume turned up so loud that when you turned it off and it went back to regular TV, you about blew yourself out of the room. All in all, I'm glad I chose to watch the movie rather than read the book. Of course, the 60 page prologue didn't make things sound too promising on the reading end.
