half good. you should watch that half.
rather runs out of steam t'wards the end.
anyone else seen it?
but u have made me want a fag soooo bad.
i totally agree - as soon as winslet and walken are off screen it loses all its life.
both of them are brilliant though, and the dance routines are inspired.
izzard irritated the fuck out of me in it as well though.
The Coens and Turturro should = a great movie...
Gotta say too that Mandy Moore = Teh fit.
but the drummer girl was fitter ;)
oh - the ending - did you think that it actually belonged in a different film? the tone just completely changed, left me feeling unsettled and dissatisfied.
the fight in the underwear shop was great though :D
was exactly why I wasn't THAT impressed with what would otherwise have been a great, odd film.
It wanted to be two movies and wound up being neither of 'em.
But... still well worth watching considering the dearth of inspiring movies at the mainstream flicks.
i watched the first half and gave up because it was so bad. i was expecting sooooo much better...
i thought it was right good. i just picked it at random off the listings at the cinema and wasn't really expecting much, but i thought it was great.
christopher walken's turn is hilarious, and despite her dodgy accent, kate winslet was good too.
i'm easily pleased though, and the sight of dancing dustbin men made me smile for about twenty minutes.
