Its a wild ride
on 12 September 2008
I watched this film on the big screen at Cannes, and have to say loved it. It breaks all the tired old fomulaic films that one regularly gets to see and is a lot of fun. Very Monty Python meets Iron Maiden, and not at all boring.
The end has a wonderful twist, and it delightfully crosses genres. A brave film which will not be appreciated by Hollywood execs.
One point is that it is uncompromising, so viewers will either get it, or not - so some will love, some will hate, none will forget. I suspect thats what the filmmakers wanted. So dont expect a pretty nice picture, and enjoy the ride
