I judged this one harshly and hastily. Before Tatum settled into his rhythm, I decided that the approach, which focuses on reflected scenes in what becomes almost a mirror of a novel, would yield little. And while there's still plenty here I'd quibble with, Tatum's explication of the novel as John Grady Cole's struggle to come to see the world "as it is" takes shape as he examines the third and fourth sections. Solid and occasionally revelatory stuff.
