I didn't see it until a few years ago and wasn't really wild about it. It was okay. I dunno, I just didn't get into that story as much as most critics seemed to. It was considered a strong feat of screenwriting, having been based on a supposedly very-difficult-to-adapt book (and Minghella, who adapted it, was not too thrilled to lose his screenwriting Oscar to Billy Bob Thornton that year!) but upon closer look, the book isn't exactly Gravity's Rainbow either.
