  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film Black Widow

    Strange movie. The first third of the film, before the death of youknowhom, is really a little masterpiece with witty dialogues. Then, it becomes languid like a 20th Century Fox movie of the 50's with aging stars exposing their spleen in settings made of cardboard. So 30 minutes of pure cinema, the rest can be thrown into the garbage can (If you own the DVD, ask a specialist). Recommended to movie lovers though.
