Damn, that looks great.  I'm way more excited than I thought I would be about the prospect of Christopher Walken actually ACTING again, rather than just giving material to the impressionists.
That's some catch, that Catch-22.

Yeah I thought this was pretty good too. A nice little adult drama with finely tuned (get it?) performances by PSH and Keener especially. Also nice to see Walken in a subdued (non-comedic) role.

And Angelo Badalamenti did the score.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.
