My brain has been on vacation this week, but I still managed to get a few movie viewings in!
It would be damn near impossible to say that there is anything wrong with this film. It is just as good every single time I watch it! Catchy songs, amazing dancing, great story - the only thing that put a dent in the whole affair was my later knowledge of the lead actress getting an assault charge with another female in an airport.
I had sort of heard about this film before, when all the buzz was surrounding Ellen Page for her role in Juno. I decided to watch this the other day, based purely on her star power name. She's fantastic, but this is a DARK movie. Do not approach unless watching pedophiles getting expertly tortured, from a young assaulted girl no less, is your cup of tea.
I had been putting off watching this movie for...at least the last 5 years! I think it was my fear of the length. I mean over 3 hours! Aimee Mann actually steals this movie with her hauntingly perfect soundtrack. A huge cast is involved and there really aren't any weak links. It is so hauntingly poetic. Mmm. I will be watching this again :).
What have you been watching this week? Anything you recommend?
