Love the Hard Way

What an...interesting movie.
Love the Hard Way. It's a love story. And the moral of the story is that love? Is totally fucked up. It's simultaneously the best and worst thing that can happen to you.
Adrien Brody is a marvelous actor though. No, wait. I take that back. He is an Actor, with a capital "A."
It's an odd movie, this. It's shot entirely in New York, but it was made by Germans and has a very prevalent, decidedly heavy, "German" feel to it.
It a good movie. It's well acted and filmed nicely...but, somehow...it's not satisfying.

Except, of course, for the bits where Adrien Brody has his shirt off.

It's definitely dark. Compelling...
I don't know if I liked it or not. I just know that it was good.
