This was a good movie. Don't get me wrong, it's not "Magnolia" or "Boogie Nights" or even "Punch Drunk Love".
All of his films now seem to have something really really remarkable about them, this didn't. I mean, "Punch Drunk Love" with Jeremy Blake's artwork or the music that pounded in each sceen, the cinematography; all of it was there.
BUT.. this movie did move slow. I liked the concept of how Sydney just hide his past and its mistakes. He carried a huge monkey on his back, and you could see his emotion ride out on the screen and that was John and Clementine. It was just a solid story, nothing more, not flash and dance, just a great story and wonderful acting.
The more I watch this... the more I respect it and cheerish it.
