    I thought a couple of things with the kids in the movie were very disquieting--when the one son said h e used to bang their heads together as punishment--that is so abnormal for a parent to do that; kids' heads are fragile, you spend your life protecting them from head injury. did you notice that?
    Wow--killer owls everywhere! At least one of the sons comes across as creepy as his father.

    Alan - I loved the baroque cycle, and it took me a year to read them all. thatís very unusual for me - normally Iíd read a trilogy like that in 2 months or less. I think it was such dense reading with so many interconnecting but very disparate threads - I could only read it a little at a time.
