This has a similar tone to 8 1/2 (the last movie I watched) oh it’s so hard to make movies. Again I struggled with a lot of the symbolism and stuff that is going on. Movie folks like nothing better than movies featuring movie folk, write what you know I suppose and although this is a film with a lot of enjoyable bits, I can’t say I regard it as the classic it’s built up to be. John Goodman is great playing his usual character. John Turturro is also very strong. Would I recommend this? Probably wouldn’t encourage people to go out there way to see it, but if it happened to pop up on telly, watch it.
