Matthew Martens's rating of the film Adam & Paul

A beautiful, but not too beautiful, film about a pair of unbeautiful losers, Adam & Paul is a shaggy dog, junkie-Beckett buddy-movie, a day in the life that begins and ends on the outskirts of nowhere, shuffling and scraping through Dublin -- and the remnants of a pre-fallen life -- in the meantime. Almost too sweetly low-down at times -- due mostly to its jauntily lilting soundtrack -- but brilliantly funny and sad.
