and coming off In Bruges, which was a singular film, I'm definitely in for this one.

Just saw it. The trailer doesn't do it justice. It gives it a wacky comedy vibe. I mean yes it is also a wacky comedy in it's own right but the trailer doesn't come anywhere near expressing how much heart this movie has. Solid cast, easily Sam Rockwell's best since Moon and I see shades of wild bill in this character. Don't wait, go fucking see it today.

In Bruges was incredible--a delightfully weird mix of violence, humor, melancholy, and heart. It is honestly my favorite of Ralph Fiennes roles. If this is half as good, it will still be amazing. Oh, and Tom fucking Waits. He's been in some shit films, but I love the man. And I agree--Farrell is much better in comedy. I'm definitely looking forward to this one. Did anyone see "The Guard," from McDonagh's brother (I think)? Is it worthwhile?

I am concerned about it being too self aware. This reminds me of Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. Which was a fun flick, but a little too caught up in its own "quirkiness" to be a truly satisfying experience.

I had the fortune of seeing two of his plays produced on Broadway (including The Pillowman with Ivanek, Jeff Goldblum, and Billy Crudup) and fell in love with his style. The guy has wit and fearlessness and a genuine sense of feeling for the predicaments and bad decisions of his characters. After the strength of In Bruges, I'm glad he's got another movie out. Really looking forward to this.

I left my thoughts on his thread if anyone cares. I'm just glad that Capone gave this film a just review. It was a breathe of fresh air in an industry that wants to sell us shit like Hangover Goes Hawaiin or Taken 6.

I loved it, and though there is a wee bit of muddling in the middle, overall I think it hangs well with In Bruges if not exceeds it. It really IS about writers block. But the way it's about it a damn fun ride. (I would expand, but it would be so easy to spoil so many of the little treats that i will just leave you with this: SEE IT!!)

The movie was kind of schizophrenic, but I think that was part of the story telling. A crazy movie told like a crazy person might tell it.

at Capone's Chicago screening. Fantastic film. Glad for a very original and well told story that wasn't a sequel, reboot or remake.

There were only 8 people at our showing, and 3 of them got up and walked out... I spoke with the other couple who stuck around, and while they claimed they enjoyed it, they admitted they were expecting something more along the line of The Hangover. My wife and I fucking loved it, though.
