3 February 2015 | by jdarnold-230-805014See all my reviews

Seeing this movie and then worrying about the plot is like assessing a chain of pearls and commenting on the twine. This movie is a series of set pieces loosely strung together by the slightest of connections. Many are movie homages (spoofs or otherwise), others are song and dance numbers of Berkleyesqe proportions (there is a great 20's tap number) and still others lovingly imitate movie-maker styles - Tarantino and the Coen brothers are obvious sources of inspiration. There are holes and weak moments, but in all its a wonder. There are also soaring heights of inspired lunacy - the General and his Daughter (Six) belting out an operatic aria at his wedding. Graduate students will write essays about the sources used and mocked in this movie. (I thought I saw Dark City in the scene where Ma meets Six, and what is the nature of the use of audiences in the movie?) Open your mind and let it all seep in.
