It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

It'll be equal parts shit and stunning, but never less than well worth watching -
as was/is almost every film OW ever started or ever started and somehow never finished

apart from the equality and the almost, my feelings exactly.
Might be the first film I actively seek out in a decade, not least because it was actually made at a time when I really cared about movies and went to the cinema at least twice a week, so I have the context to enjoy it. Thanks to lickle pickle for bringing it to my attention
