 No one give a film like this an F - especially when it's so praised by others - unless they set out to give it that grade from the get go. THAT'S a "vacuous, enervated exercise", bub. You are simply trying to be contrarian for the sake of being contrarian. I'm used to this on the music side of Stylus, but hoped the film side would be exempt. Too bad.

 Nine Lives HAS seen it's share of very favorable reviews, though the negative reviews have been SCATHINGLY negative. The guys over at Slant also awarded the film 0/4 stars. See for yourself: http://www.slantmagazine.com/film/film_review.asp?ID=1754 I want to see it..... if only to see what is so polarizing about it.

 nice. can't wait to see it. someone needs to review match point. it's critic reviews are embarrassing. more gimmicky high art that plays closer to soap opera than it should.
