    This movie is coming back to me mostly in fragments: moments when I got aggravated with choices either on a script, direction, or acting level - but my biggest complaint is that I did not smile during this comedy. That should probably be a bare minimum requirement, and maybe the ol' funny bone just needed a little dusting off. Probably on me. Mileage will vary.


    Anyway, beyond that...


    There is the fact that the film opens…

  • Birth

    Birth

    A rare film that still leaves perfectly competent viewers debating what they just saw, and a rare film that uses a very shocking story component to tell a story that would've developed without it. Kidman is perfect, the score is perfect, Glazer's direction is perfect. One of a few '00s Kidman films that were wholly misunderstood and under-appreciated.
