I respect how much of the movie is just Cusack in the room but to me it felt too long and stretched out to make a movie. The short story was good and had a neat history but was also pretty short so I thought that really showed. I liked the beginning stuff but the whole flashback/writing a whole book sequence got tired for me real quick. I was also waiting for my favorite "gag" in the story but, they changed the ending to be lame which is a shame (spoler parenthesis! my memory of the story was that he sets himself on fire and makes it out of the room and it turns out that he'd only been in the room like 6 minutes when it seemed like whole days). Compared to that, the ending they went with seemed familiar and blah to me.
oh well, i guess i am just a jaded guy who cant get scared in movies anymore.
