Agreed - a damn file film, true 'actors' performances if you know what I mean. Not a film for Mr Joe SP!
Funny, I'm a Joe SP, and I somehow managed to elevate myself out of my mainstream existence long enough to appreciate the true "actors'" performance--in spite of my ignorance and shortcomings. And to top it off, I didn't wet myself, babble incoherently, or vomit onto my neighbor during the process--in spite of the daunting complexity of this film.
Course, I din't understan' half them fancy words.
And goodness knows those sophisticated themes of aging, competitiveness, and self doubt are well beyond the ken of a Joe SP like me, but danged if I didn't like the movie anyway.
All those moving lights and big sounds and people talking on screen were so exciting for a rube like me.
