Rian Johnson's directorial style resembles Wes Anderson's, but with more of a penchant for sweetness. THE BROTHERS BLOOM is littered with sentimental twists, moments, and visuals. Johnson's craft is still developing, with his this, his sophomore effort, falling slightly short of his wonderful first film Brick.Read more ›
For some reason movie critics tanked this gem, but the people who went to see it tend toward rave review. Perhaps the critics weren't paid for a positive opinion in a timely manner, or maybe they just can't let themselves enjoy a piece of cinema that isn't some crappy Hollywood remake. See with friends, and I hope you enjoy it as I did.
(No spoilers). As stated in the summary, the movie follows two of the greatest con artists on their last con....and, the entire movie sets them up as amazing professionals who are capable of such storytelling and insight into others' psyche that they can make any scenario successful (and, as with other great movies involving heart-warming thieves, even when everything looks problematic, there is a great twist at the end to make the con work out). Ok, great. The majority of the movie is very enjoyable and different and then...disaster.
Characters who seemed to play a major role in the beginning disappeared without explanation. Minor characters (who were not really explained) became major ones without reason or logic. Some really interesting events hinting at bigger/critical storylines were dropped immediately. Characters went against everything in their nature from the entire rest of the movie. And, finally, the ending just didn't make sense...it was dumb, it didn't fit with the rest of the story, and it seemed totally irrational. Not every story has to end in rainbows and unicorns, but this didn't even "go" with the rest of the movie.Read more ›
This was a little like Steve Martians movie "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" if you're open to that type of humor than you might enjoy this. But as I alluded to before this wasn't laugh out loud funny but the characters were much more engaging.
