“I only ever see dead people”

Terry has a very obvious style; a dusty present day with a plastic covered, scafolded, broken future, both filled with weird, stupid people and old fashioned mechanisms. I love it.

So Bruce is good. He’s lost and broken and portrays a wonderful sense of intelligence-despite-circumstance. Madeleine plays her role well too; she’s good looking and her madness is perfect.

What else? Oh, yeah… BRAD IS MAD!! I can’t get enough of him in this movie, honestly. It’s the first time I noticed him anywhere and took time to make sure it was him. He’s spectacular. I’d see it for him and Terry alone. Fortunately the rest of this massively complicated time bounce thing is cool as well.

It’s got to be one of my all time favourites. There is a point where I understand that the script is fun but the plot is limited. But even so. The ensemble just turns me on big time. I want a follow up as well.
