Favourite film based on a book/comic/etc
Everything Is Illuminated
And yet I would still argue that it is an entertaining and engaging film in its own right.
Unlike most adaptations where I would argue the book must be read first (The Beach is a great film but it makes so much more sense if you've read the novel), I think you can safely read Everything Is Illuminated after having seen the movie without denegrating the experience of enjoying the story on the page.
