It gets better
17 February 2001 | by jtur88See all my reviews

I almost switched this picture off, because the stylish character of the delivery seemed a bit too pushed, and I did not feel that I was getting any sense that the plot was going anywhere. But stay with it, it turns out to be a satisfying, well-fashioned film. Later on, it seems to roll more comfortably, either because one gets accustomed to the stylish form, or because that aspect of it gets toned down somewhat.
