I finally went to see House Of Sand And Fog last night and didn’t care for it much. In the book, you shift allegiances with each point of view and yet you can still feel for each character. In the movie you don’t. They all end up coming across as hateable, starting with Behrani. I like Ben Kingsley a lot, but in this movie Behrani was quite dry for a while then overly melodramatic at the end. Blah.
