This is a good film.
14 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite movies. It's funny and clever and surprising in a way that movies used to be in the good old days (the seventies?). It's not nearly as horrible as some of the reviews here spell out in excruciating detail. You'd think, from the negative reviews, that this was made by a self-indulgent director, with a no-talent cast, poorly edited and lacking any coherent plot.

Nothing could be further from the truth--which makes me wonder why such evil reviews were posted. This movie is very well made. The casting is perfect. The acting is first rate. The film as a whole comes together in a way that just "clicks." It's a very good little art film about Hollywood that has been very unfairly treated--not just ignored, but condemned. I would recommend that if you are a film buff and you liked, say, "Singing in the Rain" (not that I'm comparing them) or "Barton Fink" you should do yourself a favor and see this. If you hate it, well, you have your reasons. As for me, I will keep watching this classic over and over and over. And enjoying it.
