We watched this movie last night:
Has anybody else seen it? Did anybody else wonder if maybe the director simply forgot to turn off the camera and that it would keep going and going and going? I think it must have been the longest movie I’ve ever seen. Maybe it was the slow Southern drawls. Maybe it was the fact that we knew exactly where it was going. Maybe it was that I couldn’t help but think of “The Princess Bride” whenever they went back to Daisy’s hospital room and really wanted Benjamin to say, “As you wish,” at some point, just to lighten things up a bit. But by the end of the movie, which was very well made, well acted, had good cinematography, an interesting premise, etc. etc. etc., the only thing I could think was, “It finally ended.” And also, “That was based an a short story? 700 page books get made into shorter movies!”
That is all.
