Actually, it was a terrible movie, for many reasons, chiefly the lousy story-telling and the completely disgusting, amoral tone of the ending. I hated it.

I know, off-topic. I won't do it again....although, in a way, this is not entirely off-topic: if you watch the film with care, when it's over, think about how you'd feel if you bought a beautiful Confente at over-market value, only to discover it was a clever fake. That's what the movie's really about. And the film-makers come down on the absolute wrong-end of that situation, imho.
