This was my Christmas movie. It's traditional for Jews to go to the movies on Christmas...this was my family's pick. I highly recommend this flick, and although it wasn't quite out side of Tom Hank's comfortable typical roles...it was outside enough to make a funny yet poignant movie. Phillip Seymour Hoffman absolutely stole the show, and I hope he gets at least a nomination for a supporting role.
I love the imagery and color of this movie. A very good plot with a couple twists...but I cannot say enough about the colors, symbolism, and cinematography of this movie. Another great from a director who truly understands his media. I love Yimou Zhang's vision...Hero is an early attempt if you enjoy this movie you will enjoy House of Flying Daggers and Curse of the Golden Flower, and vice versa.
I was surprised to learn Peter Berg directed this movie because I mainly know him as an actor. This is a great movie in all aspects...directing, acting, and story. Berg's style is reminiscent of Michael Mann, but somehow brighter, slightly less gritty, but just as real.
