Wow, I really fell in love with this movie. I was trying to think of adjectives to describe this film and too many popped up: strange, trippy, wonderful, bizzare, funny, heart warming, sad. What an emotional roller coaster ride. This is one of those small independent films that come along that you must see. You may not like it but you have to give them credit for putting together a very enter... read more

Like many actors before him, Liev Schreiber decided to make his directing début and I must admit, it was actually pretty good. The directing was indeed really interesting and the first half was just hilarious with some great dialogs and excentric characters. And then, suddenly, in the second half, it all became really deep and serious and the end was eventually rather heartbreaking. It was a litt... read more

Movies the giraffe watched: November 2012 (23 movies items)

"First viewing - Nov. 25th/26th I haven't read the book this is adapted from, so you won't get any comparison between the two. I dug the film, quirks & all, and found myself highly enjoying Eugene Hutz's character & overall performance. I know he's an excellent frontman from having seen his band Gogol Bordello in concert, but had no idea what to expect from his acting abilities & was thus pleasantly surprised (often those who perform music and act only possess the talents for one but not both).

"A beautiful movie about family matters allied with road trip. Quite quirky and way more funny than I expected."

A good movie

“Like many actors before him, Liev Schreiber decided to make his directing début and I must admit, it was actually pretty good. The directing was indeed really interesting and the first half was just hilarious with some great dialogs and excentric characters. And then, suddenly, in the second half, it all became really deep and serious and the end was eventually rather heartbreaking. It was a little bit hard to digest since you first get into a warm bath but then they give you an icy cold shower... Still, the story was really intriguing and the actors delivered some very good performances (of course, by Elijah Wood but also by 2 unknowns Eugene Hutz and Boris Leskin). It is rather interesting that even though Elijah Wood has reached stardom with the Lord of the Rings trilogy since then he” read more
