"Stay here with me, we'll start a jazz band"
I saw this on release and loved it, and that's part of the reason I put off watching it for so long.
But it's bloody brilliant!
Three actors giving three amazing and wildly different performances, it manages to be touching, violent and incredibly funny, funnier than the majority of comedies.
I'm not really sure how to do any kind of review here.
The theatrical cut was a monstrosity of un-epic proportions, something that should never have existed.
And arguably this shouldn't exist either. But it feels like it was willed into existence. And here we are. There are arguments to be made about how much of this cut ever existed in the first place but its hard to deny, despite the same basic plot, this is a very different film…
