me, oh my. On one level this is a worthwhile story to be told, but
my, oh me, I have rarely felt so depressed!
they not have made this as a two minute public information film?
Or just have Edward Norton looking straight into camera saying:
"Just don't do it guys! Don't be racist. It's too much effort
to be intolerant." Now, how long did it take to say that? 15
the whispers I have heard, this movie had a lot of trouble in its
making. It is truly depressing on so many levels. OK the ending
is tragically acceptable on the karmic scale of things, but the
journey is quite hard work and I doubt I would have bothered watching
it all the way though had I not been reviewing it.
laughs, no spoonful of sugar anywhere here. Just grit, a little
gruel, and then a whole truck full of gruel you could never eat
even if you tried for the rest of your life.
may want to see Shrek as an antidote to
this movie, or at least to help you cheer yourself up afterwards.
