A story about this — 5 years ago
its funny, ive read some reviews of this movie, and it seems a lot of people hate it! well, netflix users anyway.
i really enjoyed this movie. wait, i’ll bet im supposed to call it a film, arent i.
i really enjoyed this film. john c. reilly is a fantastic actor, able to pull off the nuanced humor of this film, and philip baker hall..just…wow. the ending was a bit anti-climatic, but supposed to be that way, i know. samuel l. jackson only really seems to know how to play one character, but its amazing how well it works all the time. and gwyneth paltrow was actually very good.
i didnt really know what to expect from this film, but i was pleasantly surprised. yea, the plot twists werent very crazy or anything, but..but i think that was almost the point. the whole story is told from sidney’s perspective, a world-weary guy, and everything just seems to be..pale to him. anyway, this is a good movie, just watch it.
