Added DiffLines:

* MocksteryTale: The actual plot has little to do with the murder investigation, instead being more of a [[MindScrew Mind Screwy]] psychological drama. [[spoiler:Not to mention Bruce ''is'' the murderer himself.]]

to:

* HopeSpot: At his absolute lowest point, [[spoiler: Bruce once again meets the wife and child of the man he attempted to save. They exchange numbers and one would think, perhaps, that it's a ray of sunshine offering him hope of a new family and happiness. Ultimately, he hangs himself shortly thereafter.]]

* ArmorPiercingQuestion: "How did it make you feel?" again.



* BerserkButton: Bruce doesn't like being called filth. He ''really'' hates sympathy, though.
-->'''Bruce''': ''GET ON WITH YOUR FUCKIN JOB AND QUIT PLAYING THE AMATEUR FUCKIN PSYCHOLOGIST!''

* VillainProtagonist: Then there isn't really anyone good or heroic around. [[spoiler: Especially since Bruce is actually the one who murdered Efan Wurie.]]

* PragmaticAdaptation: The movie manages to stay relatively close to the source material and is faithful to the novel's spirit, however, it does cut several aspects of the book that wouldn't work in film in order to make a more cohesive work. Bruce's cruelty is (very slightly) toned down to make him less irredeemable (although he is far from sanitized) and [[spoiler: The Self/The Tapeworm]] is played down, with his role being given to Bruce's psychiatrist, Dr. Rossi. [[spoiler: It still makes a brief appearance in one of the film's most intense scenes and Dr. Rossi is represented in the credits as a tapeworm.]]
