This would have been a pretty good movie if it wasn't for Annette Bening and her over acting, Jordan's direction is very visual, his movies are usually hit and miss with me but I like his style for this one. Shame that Downey Jr isn't in this movie until the 1 hr mark but he plays a pretty great psychotic. Not a terrible film but not a great one either, see this for Downey if you see it all.
I wanted to love it; it's beautifully made, has some fascinating ideas (mainly Jordan's usual interest in subverting fairy-tale iconography through something much darker and more mature), but unfortunately it takes a turn for the ridiculous and never really recovers. The ending felt like something that was added by the studio to make the film less confusing, and consequently, less interesting. A noble failure then.
