Just wanted to say that I heart this film.
As do I. I thought it was cute. Usually I don't like cute things, but this one had the right balance (I love the sequence where the movie critic tries to deconstruct his own death scene). I readily understand why most didn't like it, but I was smiling and laughing (good-naturedly) throughout. I guess it just has to be approached with a certain mindset. The setting is modern, but the story is really a self-reflective fairy tale, and operates on the logic (or lack thereof) of that genre.

On the other hand, I hated Signs. An even more thorough insult to the viewers' intelligence than The Village, in my opinion.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman
