almost as god as two previous King adaptations,The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile,
though it is a very different movie than both of those.still,i liked everything about it.it's suspenseful,thrilling and unpredictable.plus,Johnny Depp gives a masterful performance,in my opinion.the supporting cast is also great.John Turturro,Maria Bello,Timothy Hutton and Charles S.Dutton all put in great performances.i have only seen a handful of Stephen King adaptations,but probably half of those have been unimpressive to me.like most king movies,this one has its weirdness.nothing is straightforward or as it seems.but i felt this one had a bit more depth of character and story,which is refreshing.there are a few twists and turns and some red herrings to lead you in the wrong direction.i was kept guessing to the very end. i thought this movie was great,though like i said i didn't like it quite as much as two previous King adaptations,such as The Shawshank redemption and The Green Mile,which are masterpieces,in my opinion.still,Secret Window is a right up there.for me,Secret Window is a 9/10
