I think you all watched a different movie. The Brothers Bloom is kind of amazing.

Exactly!!! And I just rewatched it yesterday!

It is way too early to be running this poll - I get the feeling I will have to change my vote each time he releases a new film - increasing returns is my bet with RJ ;)

The Brothers Bloom is great. Super fun. But Brick is transcendentally awesome.

Abstaining cause I don't really care for any of his films, but I don't dislike them either.  I nothing them.
