    The characters absolutely ruined this. They are very unpleasant people to say the least. Early on in the film we should have been able to find out why the characters are the way that they are. This would create some empathy for the characters or at the very least it would have us care for them. We never find out why they are this way. The film has a dark comedy feel to it. The over the top acts of…

    Em momentos de excepção o cinema exemplifica como se pode ser espartanamente genial. E não vale a pena, nesses casos, tentar escrever coisas inteligentes sobre o assunto.

    I've been sick this week, but tonight I finally felt well enough to pay attention to a whole movie.

    The first time I saw this, it was in the mid-nineties, the same night I saw Clerks for the first time. It was a Blockbuster Video trip that ended up being my introduction to independent cinema.

    This film has a very 90s feel. Maybe it's the haircuts. Sometimes it feels like a nightmare episode of Friends.

    [Originally written on my blog.]

    One of the first films I reviewed on my site, back when I was just putting up one-sentence thoughts for a handful of friends and had zero expectation of launching a career. No point in even linking to it, here it is in full: "Flashy and all, but these characters were just too awful to no purpose." So to expand upon those trenchant observations: The problem isn't that all three leads are hateful, but…

    Fucking Oscars! I didn't sleep at all the night before and then it just happened to be the day before we watched this at college!

    Well, I don't know how much I slept the previous night, but I don't remember great big chunks of the story, so I'm borrowing the DVD and am gonna watch it again.

    All of this tiredness for NPH's shit hosting....

    Damn solid genre film with three excellent presences at its core (Eccleston is amazing in a role that at first seems a little out of his range). I like that it's not very plotty or twisty, just a handful of people slowly, predictably spiraling into fucking madness.

    This one deserves a place in the Midnight Movie Pantheon, but there it should stay, and those movies, for the most part, are not for me. This one wasn't. I was bored throughout.

    The last time I saw this film, I was still a "casual" movie lover, and had yet to come to the realization that a film can be about awful people and still be enjoyable or interesting.

    It was great to revisit this after seeing it in its theatrical release. It holds up well as a terrific thriller. I forgot that it was Danny Boyle directing which explains why I remember it's excellent visual style. Fun!
