    excellent. pecan pie scene is one of the funniest and darkest comic setpieces of all time - the decision to stage it as an endless waffling monologue by grodin is perfect. like almost everything else he says in the film, he's not communicating so much as he's trying to ward off the possibility of becoming sincere, trying to keep himself clean of berlin's pain with a sustained stream of words. "what are these sounds? c'mon..." when the waiter asks if he wants whipped cream, he does like twelve different things in three seconds. not my favorite elaine may, but probably her closest to formal perfection.

    the greatest superhero film of the early-to-mid-2000s; a throwback to when superhero protags were just kind of dumb everymen who wanted their ex-girlfriends back and uhhh listened to the Black Keys. cannot overstate the bizarreness and beauty of tom hardy's performance, in which he appears to be doing an impression of adam sandler in Big Daddy if he was possessed by demons. michelle williams doing jennifer aniston, blinking a lot, hilariously wasted on this film. i can't believe people don't love this.
