Gerald's Game ★★★½

Plays now more than the book did as a necessary exercise in our collective responsibility towards victims of trauma, and Flanagan is such a tight craftsman that the whole thing has the icky film of exploitation all over it, especially in the flashbacks. Shame he stuck with the source material's terrible coda, but the notorious finale is just as gross and awesome as you imagined when translated to the screen.
