Well, I was gonna go see mum and Matt.
What are you talking about. You haven't seen them in 5 years.
Boats?… Making Boats?… Well that'd be alright, wouldn't it?
I remember catching this film on a C4 screening a year ago and I was
completely blown away by the whole thing. I thought the film managed to
represent such a diversity of genres; the supernatural, a love story, the
intrigue of crime, and so many more.
I was hooked on the whole thing after a minute or so and was really
concerned about the characters. It made me feel terrified at one second
Jimmy, and then had me laughing away at the gangsters in the next… and
the time I had my fingers crossed that things would work out for
Heath Ledger and Rose Bryne are superb, Bryan Brown is absolute quality
had me creasing up, along with David Field, who was funny as well as
an evil git.
Since I saw this film I managed to order it on DVD and as a result, every
person I show it to has been hooked in much the same way.
This film is perfect for a Sunday afternoon or a lazy evening, and it's
that you can really appreciate with your mates around.
