‘The Brothers Bloom’
A very very ambitious second film on Rian Johnson’s part– but maybe a little ambition is good. The noirish elements (see: the scene where Penelope first meets the Belgian in the shadows of the freighter) are what he continues to excel in, and he does display a great knack for bringing out really touching performances from the each of the cast.
Rinko Kikuchi was so fluid and Charlie Chaplin-esque in her comedic timing and ability to express so much with barely any dialogue.
Plus points for looking incredibly sharp in all those furs and pantsuits :}
