Re Bronson- this film has about as much Bronson acting as he ever does and he doesn't say much in this, great action star. I guess I am falling into the trap of saying a serious actor like Robards has to be better than the action star Bronson. The example of Robards greatness (which I kind of took as a given) is his role as Hoffman & Redford's boss in All The President's Men, the sort of archetypal newspaper editor; defines the role in my head whenever I think of that type of character.
4. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind- I think you could make whole film out of the "Baby Joel" sequence, too short by far.
- This is about the ending so this is spoiler. It's a drastic solution but Clementine had good reasons for wanting to forget him and those reasons don't really change at the end and I thought the natural ending was that they would realise it. I actually am struggling to remember exactly how it ends but isn't it more upbeat than that? It seemed like a tacked on happy ending.... a bit. I would disagree with MT that Carrey is bad in the role because he does come across as genuinely unlikeable which is good acting. Again I don't quite buy the attraction.
