i'm doing it on my own, i'm takin' the world by storm...
21 September 2002 | by piltdown70See all my reviews

little noises is a beautiful film. it's all about running long in the sand til the crabs take your toes and the full sky escaping empty. my favorite part is in the cosmetic department when wayne tells glover's character "why don't you highlight her face!!", and tatum can be seen losing it in the background. it's real and not as far-fetched as you might think. "you are my disciple"-wrong, wake up. a few hundred bucks gives no redemption. this film actually turned me on Hart Crane's cool style and strange life. the only thing is the tagline: a little comedy in the big apple kind of cheesy. but still, it's my favorite film of all time!!!
