Brilliant movie, Rian Johnson is actually worthy of the oft bandied about genius label. Mesmerizing script, striking visuals, and stellar performances all around; especially Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Wrote an article about the film for Hollywood.com. Check it!
One of the strangest films I think I've ever seen. The implications made by Korine's "Girls Gone Ridiculously Wild" conceit seem very straightforward, but the stylistic choices challenge knee-jerk assessments as to its true intentions. Franco's performance is spell-binding. I'm gonna need a second, if not also third, viewing to really make up my mind.
