The book is much, much better at showing a privileged WASP-y banker whose wrong turn with his tacky mistress (vapidly and perfectly played by Melanie Griffiths) leads him into a cascade of errors and adversarial relationships in his own tony world and the regular "Joe" one.

I had always avoided seeing this movie because I heard it was terrible. I watched it in 2016 and couldn't believe how relevant it is today, with the media always ginning up some controversy and stoking racial animus for political purposes. This is a movie that should be watched again in this Age of "Black Lives Matter," where various forces on the Left are forever looking to ignite a powder keg for one agenda or another.
