    Can’t wait for the upcoming Belle/Baby Annette Super Bowl Halftime Show!

    (I wept continuously for the last thirty or so minutes.)

    A total mixed bag. Sometimes the pastiche is spot on. Sometimes Soderbergh chooses camera placement and framing that would never be in a film he is aping. Every production code breaking moment feels wrong. The story has stretches that are quite intriguing and a few that are deadly boring. Generally, the cast feels appropriate to the material, with Blanchett being the most suited. Tobey Maguire is dreadfully miscast. So… a mixed bag is really all I can say.
