intolerable creulty

for a coen brother film this movie was a let-down. george clooney plays the same character he always plays. only in this one instead of being obsessive about his hair as he was in o brother he was constantly messing with his teeth. kim told me that they were trying to copy some old-style movies and yeah, ok they sort of were, but (and this is the crucial but) they kind of updated too much and as an homage it wasn't all that compelling.

this movie was ok, but no gem.

I saw a screening of Intolerable Cruelty, like, 8 months ago and loved it. Hopefully they didn't change the film too much...
