Why is this list about Richard Curtis as an director and not a script-writer?? That would have made much more sense.

It's a spaghetti western people. You are not supposed to like the characters, or feel any sympathy towards any of them at all. Not that I thought any thing special of this, or any other of Tarantino's films for that matter, but I actually feel this might be his most genuine film genre-wise.

Must have been a great influence on Oppenheimer and co.

@dpanter I do not understand how your first paragraph corresponds to the rest. I haven't seen it, but from how you describe it in the first paragraph it actually sounds decent.

@TheMrNickolas [Spoiler alert]
I can clearly see your view, but I found it to be about something else. Almost all of the characters seem to have something in common. Ellis' life is falling apart as his parents' relationship breaks, and at the end he has to leave his home. The old man, hunting for Mud, seems to be doing all he can for revenging his son. Neckbone is living with his uncle as he never knew his parents. Tom is the closest Mud ever come to a father, and at the end they are finally yet together. For me it is quite clear that it all sums up being about father and son. Ellis seems to see Mud as a possible new father figure as his old life collapses, and Mud's sort of living seems to be the only possible way of living like Ellis used to. Even the "bad" character (the old man revenging his son) is given sympathy at the end when he gets the call that his second son is dead.

I'm not saying that your point is wrong, as I clearly think that what you are saying is a legit theme. It is just so wonderful how filled with themes this movie is, and how we all seems to see our own things.

Visually perfect, and you can look for a long time to find a better costume and set design. Very charming and filled with silly humor. But not quite according to my taste. I found it to be too overly acted and predictable with an overall almost artificial feel to it.

My favorite spaghetti western. Yes, I prefer this over the Leone-flicks.

My favorite Fincher, and one of the best of the previous decade. Don't expect a new Se7en. This isn't a horror or any action flick. Don't expect to get too thrilled. This is all about the characters and how they waste their lives trying to catch the killer.

I don't understand all the hate. This was a great drama, with an exceptional buildup. I thought it was a bit dull in the beginning, but as soon as the drama kicked in it became really interesting. I think this is all about the characters and the development of the situation. If you don't like this kind of movies go back to Michael Bay, and let this be for us who enjoys this kind of genre mastering.

Well, at first it seemed like a poor rear window rip off, but it really ended up more cleverly. The last twenty minutes were superb.

God this movie was awful. Highly recommends to watch Foo Fighters 'walk' instead.
