The review I read for this movie could be summed up as “eh,” so I bypassed it when it was in theaters. But because I loved Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck’s* previous film** and because the movie was just sitting there at the library and because I really like both main actors I took it home and watched it. And I LOVED THIS MOVIE which was chock full of glamour and intrigue in that old Hollywood way without being slowly paced in that old Hollywood way.
Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home
*My favorite director name, ever.
**The Lives of Others, which you really must see if you haven’t already.
