Well, the movie captures the book - but tones things down a bit. The characters in the movie are obnoxious, toxic people - but not so much as in the book. They are criminal - but not so much as in the book. I wouldn't want to know any of these people with their pretensions of being intellectuals, when they are really just a drain on society. Useless people, just as in the book. Not very enjoyable to watch.
