Phoenix finally lives up to the hype

Rated R

Without spoiling any details, a quick word about the ending -- like Fight Club, it feels almost a cheat at first and is a significant departure from the source material. On reflection, though, and a second viewing, it makes a better fit for the film than O'Connor's ambiguous cliff-hanger. And though on the face of it, it's a "happy" outcome, one could make a case that on a deeper level, it's even more cynical than the book. If that kind of thing doesn't float your boat, this isn't the movie to see, but fans of the likes of Robert Altman's original M*A*S*H should surely be able to groove to this worthy successor.
