    The professional reviewers are slap out of their heads. I am so tired of the professional critics and "The Academy" telling me that some endlessly long brooding dimly lit pointless drivel is high art and something that's actually entertaining isn't. I saw this film at a film festival when it first made its debut, and Chazz was there in person at the end, and it was what a movie is SUPPOSED to be - entertaining, easy to watch, and actually worth the price of a ticket, what a concept. The sleight of hand is lightning fast, real, impressive and fascinating and the storyline actually original for a change, and it's engrossing enough to take your mind off the bad news for a while - again, exactly what a film is SUPPOSED to do. If this film is showing in your city, go see it now while you have the chance, since if the critic reviews are any indication, some 3 hour long pointless but highly lauded introspective naval-gazing sepia-toned saga will soon take its place.
