"I agree with Nigel Floyd's assessment and I agree with Tabula Rasa. I'm really glad I only read the review after watching the film. Why not just stop after the first sentence (and even leave out the bit about the new world and the odyssey) and then pick up again with the second and last paragraph? I tend to agree with Time Out film reviews (though you tend to be a bit soft on the classics and on UK productions) but I usually stop at the star rating, watch the film and then read the review. I suspect some of you film writers wish you were writing for Les Cahiers du Cinéma"
