What’s on DVD Wednesday January 1, 2013?
This was one of the weirdest movies/films I’ve seen in a while. I can’t even begin to tell you what it is about. All I know is that there’s a guy in a limo wanting to get to the other side of town to get a haircut. Whatever happens on his way to the barbershop is weird, strange and somewhat confusing. Perhaps I need to watch this again. Nevertheless, this is probably one of Robert Pattinson’s best performance, I enjoyed his presence in this film more than on any of his other work. If you watch this film, please let me know what you thought about it.
Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson),a 28-year-old billionaire asset manager, heads out in his tricked-out stretch limo, while remotely wagering his company’s massive fortune on a bet against the Chinese Yuan. His trip across the city quickly turns into a wild, hypnotic odyssey as he encounters explosive city riots and a parade of provocative visitors. Having started the day with everything, Packer’s perfectly ordered, doubt-free world is about to implode. (Amazon)
