Worthless piece of crap — 3 years ago
This movie seemed like a good candidate for 2 hours of my time: a 7+ rating on IMDB, a powerful cast (Bill Murray, whose Groundhog Day and Ghostbusters I loved; Sharon Stone; Julie Delpy from Before Sunrise/Sunset); a cool opening with the path of a letter though the United States Postal System… but that’s where it ended.
I thought there was a point to the slow, dragging, pace of the movie – perhaps like in The Sixth Sense? But no. It dragged, and dragged, showing us in painful detail how Don drove, looked at maps and traveled in airplanes…
Who the f*%k cares about that?! If I’m interested in a boring, mundane life, all I have to do is hit Twitter. As for the rendez-vous with his past flames, I found them almost completely uninteresting and worthless. The only exception was the comment Don made regarding Lolita’s showing up naked: “That was quite an outfit you weren’t wearing last night”.
There you have it, all that’s left for me from this utterly trite piece of pointless nihilistic junk with one hell of an annoying soundtrack.
