Quirky little British film starring Ned Beatty as a legendary Irish tenor contemplating returning to England after fleeing tax evasion charges decades earlier. Droll and amiable comedy for the most part, despite a jarring and completely gratuitous sex scene early on that seemed to belong to a different movie.
Bizarre movie...can't believe that I have not seen it until now. Steve Martin doesn't really work in his role...maybe because it is so close to The Jerk and seeing him opposite Bernadette Peters as a darker version of that movie's man-child is just too jarring. I did like the basic theme of sunny depression era songs contrasted with the squalor and vice of reality. Dancing was outstanding...especially Christopher Walken's perverse tap dance strip tease. Well worth watching, but definitely not "warm-hearted", as the Netflix sleeve described it (or "black and white" either).
Extremely unsettling story of a mother struggling to cope with her sociopathic son. It was more stylized and mannered than I had expected, but once I had adjusted my expectations appropriately it started to work on me. John C Reilly seemed miscast but Tilda Swinton was excellent, and Ezra Miller has to be the creepiest actor I've seen in quite awhile.
