A fat Lawyer finds himself growing "Thinner" when an old gypsy man places a hex on him. Now the lawyer must call upon his friends in organized crime to help him persuade the gypsy to lift the curse. Time is running out for the desperate lawyer as he draws closer to his own death, and grows ever thinner. Written by
Good adaptation of a Stephen King's novel, this movie is almost a exception, along with "The Shining" by Kubrick, in an effort to turn out the grim and uncanny world of Mr. King in images. The cast is perfect, especially Burke who gives a convincent and not far-fetched perform in the leading role of the lawyer cursed by a group of gipsies. Mantegna is excellent, too, as a mafia's boss who helps the lawyer to find a way out of his troubles. I give a 6 (six) to this.
