Love this film! by Anthony O'Toole

There's so much here, so many subtle theme's that writing anything other than an epic review would mean neglecting much of it. Kevin Spacey has never been better and the whole cast give first rate performances. The script is incredibly witty and delivered flawlessly by the leads.

I though a lot of how much I loved this movie may have been down to my low expectations going in, but years on and watching for the umpteenth time - it still inspires!
