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.
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.
This film probes deeply into what can go wrong when the love is strong but the liking is almost non-existent. Many of the scenes are whimsical and the whimsy is deftly handled, but when issues become serious, the film rises effortlessly to seriousness. The performances of the three principal players are incandescent, with Mark Ruffalo especially convincing. This is character-driven cinema at its very best - and rewarding. One other element that I really, really enjoyed and it is one of the most unusual aspects of any film in my memory, that is, many scenes are filmed in such a way that the setting COULD BE the nineteenth century. It's uncanny. I don't why this was done, but I loved the sheer virtuosity of it. Just another element of this film's wonder!

A little slow at times, but it's not really an action film. The story and character interaction were really fun to watch.Published 4 days ago by Joshua J. Kugler
What is it about all Woody Allen films...they don't seem to actually conclude but to just dribble into nothing. I really like these actors but what an unfulfilling script... Read morePublished 7 days ago by beachspirit
I really didn't enjoy this film at all. The only bright spot was Rachel Weisz's acting in it.Published 9 days ago by Kevin King
This movie wasn't funny. It was just weird ..... at least for the first 30 minutes, after which we gave up. A shame because we like both Brody and Weisz.Published 13 days ago by Geezer & Wife
