The International

Saw this with my Morphosys group last night: An INTERPOL agent (Clive Owen of the kissable chin) teams up with a New York District Attorney (Naomi Watts of the perfect hair) to bring down a corrupt bank in Tom Tykwer’s The International. The film’s centerpiece is a shoot-out at the Guggenheim Museum that D.H. Schleicher calls “both a bullet-riddled blood-soaked multi-media homage to Hitchcock and an artistic F-you to all of the mindless “shattered glass” suspense thrillers that have come down the pike in the last twenty years.” Yes indeed, I thought the scene was right out of a well-drawn comic book. My group had mixed reactions about Clive Owen, thinking he made too many mistakes (we’re spoiled by Bond and Bourne), but the ladies agreed: It’s good he only got his ear shot off, leaving the rest of his pretty face for us. Sigh. 😉
