Another Round

i feel like i've seen several versions of this film– the wish fulfillment/monkey's paw story as applied to average men whose averageness is their great crutch– but never so grounded, and never like this where it refuses the clean and obvious resolution you're expecting. i have mixed feelings about that, but damn if those final minutes aren't so delightful that you can't help but not care. nice to finally get to see mads as joyous and fun and charismatic on film as he is in the press! i can't imagine anyone watching this movie and leaving without a crush on him. not really the point of the movie, but it might as well be!
