And it was incredible. Grossly disturbing to the point of me muting the tv and turning away during a couple of scenes (those who've seen it know which ones I am talking about), it was nontheless a stunningly well-made movie. Watched the second one, which was as well-made but wasn't as riveting. I haven't read the books, nor do I really want to, after the knowledge of just how graphic things get. I've heard they're good, and that's enough for me.
