CGiii Comment

...and your heart will soar like a hawk.

Sometimes the magic works, sometimes it doesn't.

Here, it most certainly works.

Injecting the absurd, the comic into a serious story can be the downfall for many - Penn achieves this tricky balance to perfection.

The photography is astounding - it is quite incomprehensible as to why this film was practically ignored by the Academy - what do they know?

An utter joy.
