Subject: Southland Tales reviews

Following the Cannes premiere Southland Tales has been unfavourably reviewed.

Perhaps I shouldn't comment as yet but the prevailing criticism seems to be that the film is directionless. Or, to put it another way, it displays a lack of exposition. When I started reading the reviews I began thinking 'I bet it takes place over a short timespan' and with the exception of the initial scene which is set three years earlier this is apparently the case, the movie depicts some events which occur over three days.

Obviously there is the possibility that the film is as bad as the critics say it is but rather more likely I think is that critics don't like stuff they don't instantly understand. Me? I've got used to it, I had to see Serenity twelve times before I was happy I knew what was going on.

If you want to read the (spoilery) reviews they're here, the Levy one being the fullest and least critical


they don't mention whether SMG gets her kit off though, so I guess she doesn't.
