  1. Great! I'm glad someone has thought to acknowledge it this way. I read the review and, while fine, it did not 'get' the ending. I felt like sending him to the Brevet post, the interview with Will. Because what Jason says about the ending is so wrong.
    It's funny with some of these entities: What is Entertainment Focus?

  2. Hi jessegirl! To be honest, I don't know what EF is and had no time to do research. But I saw that they seemed to like RM a lot, which is a good thing,and that it would make a nice, quick fun post. They have this interview with Rob too, in their press coverage section, and the film review. They do not get the ending, but we're used to this now. The ending was bound to be polarizing, I think that's what the film-makers said. The review is old anyway, but I didn't know of it. But I guess we can't turn our noses up at a #1... can we?

  3. I know, Rum, 'can't turn up our noses', And you're right about the divisiveness of the ending but this Jason didn't seem to know where Will got his ideas from or how he approached it when he wrote the story. (It seemed like the Brevet post was the way to go, although I didn't comment there because I'd have to register and I really want as few of those as possible.)
    Neveretheless, it looks good to have RM come in at #1 somewhere online.

  4. @jessegirl, there's still something which bothers me about the ending. After all, a film is supposed to work on its own. Most people did not know how the filmmakers approached RM or where they were coming from, and many (not all of them thank God ! - rejected the ending and/or were mad about it. We've talked about all this so many times already, but still - there seems to be a lot of people who do not get the ending. So ... maybe it doesn't really work. I dont know, I have to think about this. You see, a film must be able to stand on its own. We're not suposed to do research about it before going into the theater. As an average viewer, I must be able to understand the film even if I know strictly nothing about it beforehand. So the question is : does the ending of RM work, or doesn't it? Mmhh.. this is going to be long and tricky to unravel...

  6. Valérie, moi aussi ! Cela dit, hum, Entertainment Focus n'est pas quelque chose de connu ou influent. Mais faute de grives... :))
