Overall the movie was well done. Gyllenhaals acting carries it from beginning to end and you can really relate to her character. That quirky curl of her lip (which I've been informed is the trademark of her brother as well) allows her overt simplicity to belie the great inner complexity of her character splendidly. Spaders eyes and disjointed speech reach similar ends.
As much as I loved the film the ending disappointed a bit in it's rosey-ness. I felt it betrayed the pervading black humour that carries the film, but for the most part I have to say you SHOULD see it. It's sexy, it's funny and it's a great character study. And did I mention it was sexy? Oh, and it's pretty hot too. And there aren't really any traditional sex scenes. But it's still pretty darn saucy. It's spicy too. Spicy Sauce. Sexy Hot Spicy Sauce. Like forget Tabasco and watch this.
P.S. If you have ever fantisized about spanking see this!. Not that I have, of course. right.
