Punch-Drunk Love

I don’t know how I managed to miss “Punch-Drunk Love“, but I am sure glad that I watched it today. It has been a while since that both Olga and I are not feeling any excitement over “Comedy/Romance” genre. Neither of us is particularly crazy about Adam Sandler too. In fact, even the poster for this movie looks very boring.

Don’t believe any of these. “Punch-Drunk Love” is one of the best movies I have seen recently. Calling it a romantic comedy doesn’t do the film any good. In fact it is more of a suspensly tight drama. Everything about it is excellent. If I would have to say something bad about it maybe I would change the ending somehow. Maybe. Somehow. I am not sure.

It is an interesting wrap up story around “I am to shy to date girls” line. Brilliant sound. It’s not that much of a soundtrack, but a non-stop sound effect type of thing, that does audience mood control. Excellent acting. I am impressed by Adam Sandler. Philip Seymour Hoffman was great too. Emily Watson was not bad at all. Dialogs were great. Camera was great.

This film has “I know what I am doing” director’s stamp all over it. Something tells me that I should give it 9 out of 10, but I cannot hold myself by any argument. So 10 out of 10 that is!
