Edward Norton was just wrong as Will Graham…
Tom Noonan managed to make the monster a sympathetic character…
Lounds, although Hoffman is good, Lang edged ahead as the obnoxious journalist, the horrible sparkly suit helped!
Apparently, he was so immersed in the role, that playing Graham was something he had trouble shedding within himself.
I also feel though, that neither movie got into the aspects of the disturbance that created The Tooth Fairy well enough.
Red Dragon was a better overall adaptation of the story, but Manhunter got the characters down better.
That said, I'd rather rewatch Red Dragon.
King's Cujo took the bleak route, which wasn't exactly necessary and I don't think the film suffers much for the change it made.
From what I have seen the majority prefer Man to Red.
