Uber FANTASTIC! Rian Johnson aho made BRICK. Clearly this was going to be good. I enjoyed it. Great plot. Great acting. Loved the wardrobe for these characters. Suits just made my day. Saw Joseph Gorden-Levitt for a split second in his cameo. Loved it. He was in brick too? YES HE WAS!!! A great film from a very romising director. Can't wait to see what he brings us next.

Doesn't hold the same fascinating depth as Johnson's first film, but The Brothers Bloom is an often funny, lighthearted caper romp that packs an emotional punch by its conclusion. Johnson is a master at creating fully-realized quirky characters and razor-sharp dialogue. Rather than make a con movie that spends a long time detailing the planning and execution of the con (ahem, Ocean's Eleven + sequels), it uses the con as a backdrop for a compelling film about the relationships of his characters.

Storyline had a chance but became too wishy half ay through - also Rachel's char didn't really do anything special which was a shame considering her skills from her childhood! Overall, wouldn't watch it again

"The Brothers Bloom" by Yojimbo

One of two brothers and professional con men is persuaded by the other to embark on one last job, but is the object of the exercise the eccentric millionairess or the unhappy grifter himself? I loved Rian Johnson's debut Brick and The Brothers Bloom has the same kind of literary, post modern feel to it. It is a lighter, more quirky affair however, reminding me of Jeunet's work with its blend of the surreal, odd ball yet likeable characters and nods toward silent comedy. It can seem a little self consciously wacky at times, but its charm and enjoyable characters save it from becoming too self-satisfied. The chemistry between Adrien Brody's guilt riddled con artist and Rachel Weisz's socially awkward heiress works really well and the convoluted plot, something akin to a cross between Dirty ...

Bloom is Fun

Today, I saw The Brothers Bloom and it was surprisingly enjoyable. I like all the main actors: Mark Ruffalo, Adrian Brody, and Rinko Kikuchi (who dances through her role with barely saying a word). However, Rachel Weisz is usually give or take for me, but I really enjoyed her personality in this movie, because she got to show off a little.

Nora Zehetner and Joseph Gordon Levitt from Rian Johnson's directorial debut (Brick) appeared in one club scene.

The problem with a movie like this is that it's going to fall under most people's noses, because it's quirky and cute. However, it was well written. I liked the fact that the film started from the time when the brothers were children.

Just a note, Brick didn't really work for me in all senses. The dialogue wasn't comprehensible ...
