Just finished Stalker
and was thoroughly impressed. Although my eyes are really sore from staring at the screen without blinking for periods at a time. Damn you Tarkovsky and your cinematography!

, #3 The Big Fat Kill
, and #4 That Yellow Bastard
as well as a short story from #6 Booze, Broads, and Bullets
which is the short opening. As a whole I find it like Pulp Fiction
in that you have many stories that may have little to do with one another, yet they all inhabit the same world and entwine at a certain point. And before you ask why they omitted the second book, my guess would be that 2 is also about Dwight and actually precedes 3, that way making the film seem split unevenly in half rather than evenly in three. But anyways, you should check out the comics, they're pretty good.
