A Joyful Cinematic Collage
28 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

Pure pleasure! A playful collage of ingredients, taking the viewer on a journey to places both familiar and unfamiliar but always delightful. The filmmaker talks to us about his story, gives up on it at a point, talks to his characters, even gives us two (count them) different endings....with existential musings from Groucho Marx and songs by Simon and Garfunkle along the way. The performers are all excellent, the humor is wonderfully performed with superb timing, and the citations from favorite films are more than homage...they are as delightful in themselves as the originals they honor. The black and white tribute to Manhattan during a piano solo is in itself a work of art! A surprise that will leave you both smiling and thinking and looking for new wonders around you!
