I have never read anybody who comes close to Thompson for his descriptions of violence, descriptions which in most books I skip for their tedium. He makes you feel like you are there, being buried alive, having your throat cut. He really is remarkable. But this is hard stuff to bring to the screen, the visual impact will never be the same as the written one. It isn’t the only problem with the movie version. The commentator introducing the movie to us, part of a crime noir weekend, said the Donald Westlake was not happy with the script. I don’t blame him, and I think that he showed better judgement of his own work than did those subsequently who think he did a fine job.

When you take Texas out of Jim Thompson's novels, somehow they just aren't the same. And so it is with The Grifters, a book set in Los Angeles that reflects the vapid, desolate landscape and cityscape of southern California. Not even the ocean or the beaches seem to have life. Instead, the settings are low rent hotel rooms, cheap bars, and a cocktail lounge.

Yes, Thompson's strong narrative storytelling still compels the reader to the next page and the next and the next and the next. But by the end, which true to Thompson form is terrifyingly shocking, the overall effect isn't quite as satisfying.

What this novel lacks is a sense of fullness in the characters. Essentially, Thompson returned to the "grifter" theme a few years later, when he wrote Texas By the Tail. And in that work, there is much more vivid imagery and a sense of authenticity in the dialogue and movement of the characters. ( )
