    The bloke who wrote the novel on which the film is based used to be my English teacher at comprehensive school.

    It was ok. Clooney was my issue with it I think. I didn’t dislike it. But that’s about as positive as it gets.

    The prostitute lady tickled my fancy.

    It was a bit flat otherwise. Pity, because the ending deserved a better film.

    I think Clooney gives a great understated performance

    He’s a tired, jaded hitman and he plays it well

    Violence aside, it’s a subtle, tense film

    I think that’s George’s best role. I really liked the melancholy atmosphere and sense of loneliness. Funny touches like he orders a coffee “Americano”, sits in a bar where the music is “No Parlo Americano” etc.

    (Been to the area where it was filmed (Abruzzo) and it’s a really under-explored spot for a holiday.)

    It’s a funny one really because it appears to be one of those films that keeps me thinking about it for a while after it’s finished. On reflection I’m not sure GC was my issue with it. I think the loneliness of the story along with the bleak but beautiful scenery left me feeling a bit lonely and melancholic (great word btw). Waking up this morning I feel I enjoyed it a lot more than I did last night. Will keep an eye out for it being shown again.
    I felt a similar sensation after I first watched the original ‘girl with the dragon tattoo’.

    One of my favourite films.

    Another (Hannah) is on Sunday I think…

    It’s one of the better films I have watched. In a world of megastar-infested blockbusters exploding with special effects, it’s a breath of fresh air. Yes, it’s bleak and quiet in places, but it’s well acted and beautifully shot.
