Watched tonite and was dazzled.
I was transported to another world and completely pulled into the movie.
This is not a "date movie," far far from it.
It is a peek at the darkness of the human condition...
Things are NOT fair, nor are they designed to be.
Happy endings, for the most part, only come true in GOOD fairy tales, not in a dark one such as this.
The entire point the filmmaker is trying to make only becomes clear in the last 15-20 minutes.
It is magical and devastating at the same time.
The actress in the main character is...well, words fail me here.
If she isn't recognized for this role, there truly is no justice.
If I have a complaint, it is the use of 16MM for principal photography.
Often the shortcomings can be VERY distracting.
But don't let that scare you away....
As much as I admire Zero Dark Thirty, this movie has more power and depth and will be much harder to forget.
