Strangely Compelling, Rich In Dialog, Short On Entertainment.
Some will find this film a little disappointing due to its heavy reliance on dialog, perhaps the whole meaning of its title...but I'm just guessing. Rich dialog, at times verbose, lends a good bit to the experience of this film, which unfortunately brings little else in the way of entertainment. Still, as the plot unfolds the audience is compelled to speculate, no small feat in film making. In the end the writers and film makers fail, not completely but mostly, to satisfy the audience. If you're not an overly choosey type and enjoy excellent dialog performances, this is a terrific choice but if you go in expecting the standard conflict resolution, conflict resolution fare, you'll come away dissatisfied. This one would bore kids and even most older teens to tears, so spare them. Otherwise, it's worth a matinee ticket price. Just don't go in expecting too much bang for your buck.
