I liked this movie a little more than John did, but I agree that ambivalence is a pretty fair expected reaction to the movie.  Most of the literary references went way over my head.  And I thought the last third of the movie fizzled out something fierce.  But I have a little thing for Lauren Ambrose, so that helped.

Frank Langella was fine and all, but nothing earth-shattering, I’d say.  I don’t know if John would agree, but I could see an argument that save for one 45 second scene in the bathroom, he wouldn’t really be getting any buzz at all.
