Title: Glorious 39
Post by: citoyen on August 15, 2011, 12:53:34 am
Did anyone watch it? I caught the last five minutes and it looked utterly shite.

What is it about Poliakoff? Every time he has a new film out, it gets heavily trailed with reverential treatment, as if it's some momentous work of historic significance, and yet it always turns out to be a load of inscrutable, ponderous, tedious and thoroughly pretentious drivel.

Emperor's new clothes syndrome? Or am I missing something?

Just finished watching.  I give it a resounding 'meh'.

Nicely filmed, but Andrij has it about nailed

It was awful. The atmosphere was good, but the plot was lame and the ending feeble in the extreme.

The best thing of Poliakoff's is "Perfect Strangers" IMO.
