"I'm not sure what its aims are; not sure how well it's written or made; not sure how effectively it's performed. It seems like a slightly retarded farce and isn't quite funny enough but that's not just due to an insufficiency of good jokes. It seems as much to do with the variety of performances and that too many of them are sendups. Christopher Walken is unremittingly beautiful to watch and Sam Rockwell is surprising although some of that surprise subverts the film. Overall, it's insufficiently serious to be moving and Colin Farrell is a bit of a non-entity (perhaps the character is written that way; it's possible). Enjoyable in places but the end titles weren't unwelcome when they started. A puzzle with a good first hour."
