Did anyone else not have a clue what they were talking about half the time?
you have to watch at least twice
And I wouldn't mind. It kept me more interested than most films I've seen lately, even if a fair few parts made me cringe ("Who's she eating lunch with now?" And when they played too heavily on his role as this maverick detective, throwing in a load of noir clichés which really didn't work in context). I'll just make sure to put it on subtitles next time.
I think it's done with enough irony to be ok. It's kind of a pastiche of old 1920s and 30s hard boiled detective novels.
The first time I watched it a fried of mine completely hated it and was continually screaming at me to turn it off. The second time was a lot more rewarding!
i had seen it before and didn't like it much, but i watched it again tonight and found it a lot more entertaining.
although the actor playing brenden REALLY gets on my tits for no real reason. i just don't like the way he looks

*Feels better. Hopes you're not gay.*
I'm going to watch it again at some point, with my notes about film noir from A-Level by my side.
all i can say is if you had trouble with that, don't watch deadwood...
all the speak is made pretty obvious i.e bulls being cops although i knew that from those old films that c4 stick on every now and then.
Watched half of one episode and gave up. Which made me feel sad because everyone says it's good.
Still not sure what to make of it even though I am fully aware what they were intending to do, etc.
directors intend to do?
thinking I would hate it, but found it rather enjoyable. As a homage to 40s Hollywood it was great, let down by the fact that I didn't actually care about any of the characters.
understood what they were talking about - it was easy to figure out....
I just completely lost track of what they were saying while I made sure I'd ingested the last thing.
But it's easy to grasp, in the same way as A Clockwork Orange, for example. I loved the dialogue, it made it more interesting.
One of my favourite films of recent years. 9/10
I think. I'm pretty sure. Laura set it up for Tug to think/know Emily was pregnant with Dode's baby so he would kill her, thus preventing the truth about the brick from coming out.
The thing that confused me was Laura saying to Brendan that she told Emily to tell Tug that it was his baby, to calm him down, but that could have been while she was still trying to convince Brendan that he'd got it wrong.
shame, the lost girl was fit
And all the girls were fit. Also, another thing I had a problem with: at the beginning, how did she get the cigarette to point the right way?
