A great movie if you take the time to appreciate it.
This movie is fantastic, although you probably have to have a certain comic sensibility to appreciate it. The best parts of this movie are so subtle that you might miss them the first time around. The director certainly doesn't hold your hand.
The soundtrack in particular was amazing. The montage set against Belle & Sebastian's "Stars of Track and Field" is one of the better uses of song in a movie I've encountered.
I rarely come across comedies that demonstrate any originality. It's mostly formulaic junk. Pumpkin is a beautiful, hilarious, and has a great deal of thematic and character depth.
