p.s. I didn't grant "equal time" to Nadia Costa in my review. Costa also went to Boalt and before becoming a lawyer was a social worker specializing in domestic violence. If I said less about her, it's because I actually met Safran and talked to him (Costa wasn't at the movie showing).
hah, I matched 4 of my California Numbers on http://www.californianumbers.com/ while watching this movie. It's great, gives you some kind of magical aura =D

I was basically shocked to see the state America's health care was in from his film. Although I too know for a fact that American medical stuff is way expensive. Even in my country, government health care focuses on the poor and the medicine and treatment cost only a dollar. Private practices are a different story altogether. I liked his film and I learned a lot from him about the medical health care situation in America.
I enjoyed this movie from start to finish. I read the book a long time ago but that didn't spoil it for me. It's a great ride, great suspense all the way, first-rate acting, lots of twists and turns, and a nice portrait of the seamy side of LA, my home town. There's nothing slick about the production. The color sometimes veers almost towards black and white, lending it a noir (not even nouveau noir) feel. One of the best movies I've seen in a long time...
I loved it! Please go see it.
On this one I'll have to agree to disagree with the critics but agree 100% with the Golden Globe nominating committee, who saw this movie for the gem it is and nominated it for best actor, best actress, and best picture (comedy or musical).
This movie is a pleasure to watch from start to finish, and I've now seen it twice, an I still go back and watch the trailer just to hear Johnny Depp say certain lines that NO ONE ELSE could say the way he does.
Go see this. That's all I have to say about it. :-)
love this film.
GhettoPhysics redefines the derogatory pimp n ho, into the very definition of being screwed over by: a corporation, a leader, a boss, bla bla. Now we can say, I've been Pimped, or been Ho'd! It works! See the film on the 20th October, but for now, see the trailer and get my drift at GhettoPhysics.com

Interesting movie that requires the viewer to use their head and be able to understand context, provides plenty of after-movie discussion fodder and in general, was totally worth going to see.
This 'professional' reviewer, while entitled to an opinion, should admit when he's just too old to give an accurate, impartial review.
It was perfectly clear to 80% of the other 15-year-olds I went to see it with, and the other fifth was just a little foggy on some of the details. You're a film critic, you should be able to understand it. And your review had absolutely no content at all, you just complained about Nolan.
Agreed. I believe the reviewer needs to be smart enough to understand the movie before judging it.
sad that this reviewer lacks the mental capacity to understand 'inception'. it's actually easy to follow for those who can walk and chew gum at the same time. also strange how each negative review i stumble on raves on and on about nolan. maybe you should take your head out of his a** and actually watch the movie instead.
The Reviewer is an idiot. He probably could not understand the movie because his brain is not capable of doing so and thats why he wants to come up with his own movie in his dreams. Probably something really simple like Mother Goose.
I thought it was great. The reviewer should take his own advice and come up with something better if he nonsensically thinks this was not a good movie. Saw it last night at a midnight shopw and loved it. So whatever.
By the way the film deserves 4-5 stars for a horror film. This review deserves 1.
At all costs, don't miss "What on Earth?" because you think it might be woo-woo. It is anything but. It deals intelligently, scientifically, and with a sweet sense of grandeur with the globe's most persistent and beautiful mystery, the phenomenon known as "crop circles." It easily dispenses with the preposterous notion that the vast majority of these beautiful formations in the world's fields are man-made, and it explores with depth and cunning just how and why they might be here. If you have an inkling of adventure and even a small opening of curiosity to other potentialities, or simply want to blow off limitations on your imagination, you will savor this lovely and pleasant voyage, guided by filmmaker Suzanne Taylor, into the realms of the magnificent and our human relationship with it. Beyond that, this is also a good, spellbinding story and flick, as Taylor documents the utterly entertaining real world that lies beyond the nonsense world of mass media.
