"Decent review which belies my fears that Time Out will morph into an organisation more concerned with advertising than objectivity. How I miss the proper magazine. Anyway, I saw Rust And Bone Saturday night. Was it just me, or did the post-movie interviewees and the audience appear slightly underwhelmed? This was the London premiere! 3 stars from me, on the basis of all the performances from a great ensemble and the film's themes. There were some great moments which is why I feel that 2 stars is too harsh, but this is a missed opportunity. With (gasp!) better direction, a tighter, shorter plot and adherence to core values as opposed to trying to entertain, this could have been great. The film is a curate's egg, and I'm afraid that the curate's egg was disappointing. I look forward to reading more reviews though, and of course I have high hopes for Audiard's next movie!"
