Utterly moronic. Wincingly earnest and stupid at the same time. Phony, arbitrary - built on one dimensional, sadomasochistic hierarchies usually reserved for the worst sci-fi. Internal logic? How the **** can an internal logic be the critique of an external reality, when the author presumes ...Read more

Could not agree more. Just watched and after reading dumbfoundingly positive reviews from A.O. Scott and Ebert, it's refreshing that I'm not the only one who found this to be ham-handed hackery. Some nice moments, and great scenery, but overall fail.

One of my favorite movies of recent years. Yes, it is dark, but this film is one of the most creative, original films I've seen in a very long time. Incredible performances from the entire cast, and an amazing script.

I agree! No one else is making movies like this. Really great to see Colin Farrell in this role as well.

I thought it was a comedy. Boy was I wrong. Painful, dark and in these times, I wish I had chosen something more upbeat. Can't say I would recommend it.
