Seemed so much more daring and dangerous when it first came out. Now, it just seems to be a sad story about a willfully delusional woman, and a cold-hearted man. I watched it with the sound turned off. Surprising how insipid the scenes appear without ominous music to clue you in on the scary parts; or swelling music to clue you in on the morose parts.
SPOILER ALERT: My recollection is that in the book the "heroine" doesn't walk away at the end, instead she has a nervous breakdown, and is carted off to an institution.
In fairness, the movie hasn't changed; I have.
