5.0 out of 5 stars
Best film in ages, 10 Nov 2006
As always Robert Downey Jnr makes the film, which is incidentally very witty, intelligent and above all entertaining. In this post modern approach to the dark, pulp fiction crime novels of the fifties the characters are very well defined and the film has a quirky air of unusualness about it. It is a black comedy of the blackest kind, but is oddly more emotionally realistic than the Tarantino films it is compared with.
A must see film for those who wish their films to be engaging and challenging.
