Just caught this film the other day and it's really good. The awards and attention it's getting are definitely deserved. Directed by the man who gave us "The Host" and "Snowpiercer."

I may check it out eventually, but I find all the TV spots rather annoying... proclaiming it one of the best movies of the year, but without giving you a single hint as to what the heck it is about.

In this case, I'd say the least you know the more you're going to enjoy the film.

There is only one theater here in Ottawa that has it and I have been trying to get out to see it for three weeks now with no luck. I heard about this movie back in December while on vacation. Glad to hear it is good, Ed. I just hope to see it soon.

About as intense a study on contemporary income inequality and the wealth gap that you’ll ever see.  Quirky and supremely shot.  The visuals are amazing and the performances are stellar.   

Interesting article on the subject....

I pray to Galactus that this is never...EVER redone as an American adaptation.  It would be doomed to fail because the original is so, so good.
