The Boat That Rocked [Dec. 1st, 2009|10:11 pm]
Just got back from The Boat That Rocked.

Okay, it's the U.S. Release, so I guess I actually saw Pirate Radio, because somebody thinks Murrican audiences require thuddingly literal movie titles. /eyeroll

I enjoyed it. It's a very anecdotal movie, by which I mean that it didn't really have as much of a story arc as I expected. It was like, here's a situation, and some characters, and then some stuff happens. Also somewhat more of an ensemble piece than I expected, which is good.

Bill Nighy is a very funny man. And Kenneth Branagh does smug evil really, really well.

The gal at the ticket counter told me it's leaving the theater Thursday, so I'm glad I went tonight.

I don't know if Salman Rushdie turns your crank or not, but his The Ground Beneath Her Feet includes a lot of this story as part of an overall remarkable novel.
