I expected 'The Trip' to be funny, but I didn't expect it to be one of the year's most beautiful films, thanks to cinematographer Ben Smithard's stunning landscape shots -- it's like the 'Days of Heaven' of Brit impressionist movies
Just watching them volley impressions at each other for a couple of hours would make for a great time at the movies. But Winterbottom and his actors manage to underlay a melancholy note beneath the merriment, making "The Trip" even more satisfying.
So, this is new: a frequently hilarious comedy that is also totally satisfying on an emotional level. A satire of fame that is never mean-spirited, and isn't filled with obnoxious jokes aimed only at insiders.
