ehh.. sure, it’s GOOD; quite good.
leigh always extracts stellar performances
but to me, it’s a bit derivative;
him borrowing from his own oeuvre.
(frankly, i think it only received such extraordinary acclaim
because americans have been deprived of leigh’s early work,
which is much stronger to my mind. i mean, c’mon, ya’ll.)

also, why does brenda blethyn always play the same person?
