superb film, one of the very best of last year for me, close to a masterpiece. powerful drama but mature and nicely restrained, never lets up, exceptional work. for me it is just below true grit and black swan but just above the social network and the kings speech
inconsistent but overall it was very well done, i had issues with several scenes and it had some middle act issues(im still not sold on mathew vaughn- kick ass was largely awful). the ****ing fairy girl was just painful, terribly misjudged and her scenes were horrible. but aside from that i enjoyed it alot. mccavoy was good but what can you say about fassbender- the guy is absolutely a future pilar of hollywood, im talking daniel day lewis level of mastery. every moment he was on screen elevates this film and every moment he wasnt it suffers. he was the best thing in this film and the film itself was pretty good. he has deniro level screen presence already.
Unfortunately. It had to stick to the Hollywood agenda, but in reality you know she wants more of Ruffalo's sausage.
lol actually I might agree that SPOILER
the film's reconcillation of Moore's relationship with Ruffalo as just being lonely was too cookie cutter and conservative. But beneath that queer setup is a very well acted family drama. I liked it a lot but I can see y others wouldn't.

Really excited for "A Dangerous Method". Viggo, Fassbender and Cassel in the same movie
I downloaded and watched the movie after reading the below average to so-so sci fiction novel of michael crichton. The book had a promising start and it went downhill after page 50 or 60. Worst crichton book ive read so far. And i thought the movie could be better but sadly it was even more ridiculous.
The Science of Sleep: 7/10- Visually this is quite a treat. It has portions where the setting and stuff is like stop motion animation made with just like household stuff. Very cool.
But guys I can't lie... I do not understand this film. I got the overarching theme and everything and the general plot but this thing gets crazy and fast and I lost track of where I was which is maybe the point. (I don't want to say too much so you can discover for it yourself and be as prepared as I was I think it's a good experiecne.)
A Micheal Gondry film... a good one. But not his top effort.
