Trivia

In the novel "The Castle", as in the film, the protagonist, struggles to gain access to the mysterious authorities of a castle who govern the village for unknown reasons. "The Castle" is about alienation, bureaucracy, the seemingly endless frustrations of man's attempts to stand against the system, and the futile and hopeless pursuit of an unobtainable goal.

excellent 1st hour,but the movie get's lost in a Frankenstein mode
26 March 2001 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

1st watched 10/3/1998 - 5 out of 10(Dir - Steven Sonderbergh): Despite it's excellent 1st hour with Jeromy Iron's playing a quirky insurance inspector investigating the strangeness surrounding his partner's disappearance, the movie get's lost in a Frankenstein mode and it never returns. The quest for the goings on in the castle do not lend to the humor of the 1st hour and seem to have needed to be in another movie.
