If you like your comedy fully explained and in-your-face, this one is
not for you. If you appreciate deeper levels of subtlety and are
prepared to suspend hard-nosed reality for the duration, you will love
this one. Reminds me of Cohen Bros movies. If you are prepared to relax
into it and let the movie take you where IT goes, you are in for a good
ride. For those that want to predict a movie and try and show some
perceived level of intellectual superiority by telling the person next
to them what is about to happen just before it happens (yes - we know
they exist), I would hazard a guess that you will not enjoy this movie.
Having said that, I found the movie beautiful in the detail. This is not about grandiose plot, high speed chases and super cool cunning people. This is accidental and bumbling happenstance where random events are delightfully used. Truck, garage door etc. I carried with me the finer and more easily lost details of each character and I found they surprised me and delighted me with often times whimsical twists and subtle growth/support. I didn't find any huge character surprises or character twists, just good solid development, the kind where you can leave your opinions open to the end. Times like the late night rendezvous at the juke box joint and what happens when Bob tries to dance. Perfect. I walked out with a smile on my face, well amused and very much liking the attention to detail in character, shots, lighting, soundtrack etc. Not edge of the seat, sit back and relax.
