    ★★★½

    pretty unremarkable except for the lion scenes. pacino’s terrific as always, but depp’s character is so underdeveloped the film gets a bit boring.

    ★★★★

    decisive, committed, admittedly obscure work indifferent to mainstream approval and unafraid of confrontation with moral and aesthetic absolutes, this, more than you might imagine, is what keeps people from jumping out windows and under trains.

    this idea couldn’t be more true, and of course is the case of this film and all of hartley’s oeuvre as well. this one is for all the people saved from an untimely death in concrete pavements or crushed on the train tracks.

    8/10

    i believe éric rohmer is one of the few male directors who actually understands women.

    if a boy gave me the first record he ever pressed i would definitely fall for him but that’s because i’m a romantic and i love attention.
