This film is basically the litmus test for seeing if someone doesn't know about cinema. If you think this is a good film, you know nothing about cinema. It's heavy-handed, cinematic flailing. Tired garbage.
The movie that will be eternally known as "that one good movie that starred Adam Sandler." In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Sandler's gravestone gets "...well, he was pretty good in Punch Drunk Love." chiseled onto it.
I like this film because, besides the perfect PTA pacing and cinematography, it presents the real-life version of the yelling Adam Sandler character. You know, the same character we see in every other Sandler film.
It has an oneiric atmosphere. Everything offbeat…
