my new favorite movie
I'm no film expert.. but I loved this movie. It's an absolutely
brilliant, SUPERDARK comedy. Ignore any reality issues and just enjoy.
It's not brain-candy comedy, nor is it a deep social commentary (even
if it wants to be) but just a truly enjoyable film.
Evan Rachel Wood is going to be an extremely big deal. Actually, she
already is. Her character could have been really pointless, if played
by a lesser actress, but Wood gives brings an intelligence to the role
that makes her truly interesting.
My one problem? The ending. Kimberly needs to either be smart enough to
foresee the emotional consequences of what she does, or to be a total
sociopath and not care. I think they were going for her not knowing the
extent of what she had started, but I doubt she could be as smart and
successfully manipulative as she was without some people skills.
If nothing else, watch Kimberly's dad during the court scenes. Genius.
