the brothers bloom (johnson, 2008)

I started and restarted a long consideration of Rian Johnson's wonderful second film, but I was unhappy with both drafts and so they went into the scrap heap. All I wanted to keep, I guess, is that I've never before had such enormous affection for Rachel Weisz, and that Johnson may be paying tribute to Wes Anderson - each WA film is given a nod - but that he is also, fiercely, and I resist the temptation to elaborate, his "own man." I'm eager to see the next one.
