We screened the new Will Farrell movie tonight, and I think it's a keeper.
I've been looking forward to it for a few months now, and it was really good.
Very complex... multi-layered... intriguing...
It's like a Celtic knot... all twisted around in a seamless, everlasting circle... does the narrator dictate the coarse of Harold Crick's life, or is Harold Crick's life being narrated as he, himself lives and dictates it? Is he living a Comedy, (in which the girl starts off hating him, and will end up loving him) or a Tragedy, (in which, no matter what he does, he must die)... is the movie itself a Comedy or a Tragedy?
I'll be waiting for it to come out on DVD now, so I can watch it again for much less than the price of admission.
An amazing cast- I mean, Emma Thompson and Dustin Hoffman... and Will Farrell, who does an amazing job as the straight man (no underwear or naked running scenes in this one!).
I recommend it.
'Course, I'm not Siskel or Hiebert...
