A Cock and Bull Story

Michael Winterbottom United Kingdom, 2005

catch_33's rating of the film Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story

As funny as it is in moments, there are just too many instances where nothing really interesting is happening. The film is constructed quite cleverly and continues in the post modernist leanings of 24 Hour Party People whilst heavily borrowing from 8 1/2. The film certainly achieves a unique cinematic perspective, but isn't as engaging as it should be methinks.
