As always, your review described the essence of the film, its character and charm and DNA, without revealing its plot secrets; a fine gift to the soon-to-be viewer. I clicked over to Netflix to order the movie and discovered that their blurb writers don't share your finesse. They collapsed the tent of your words and left only the plot twists in place, as subtle as a TV Guide listing. I'll still rent the film, but I'm feeling a bit let down.

Watched this weekend, on your recommendation. Stunned. Creepy, beautiful.

DVD menu Music loop is exquisite, wish I knew what it was/where to find it.


This is definitely one of the year's Ten Best, and led me to check out Bobcat's other films which are just as good if slightly less wonderful (terrific Robin Williams cameo in Shakes, though). Hand on heart, however, Observe and Report is one of the Three Worst, and couldn't be more unlike WGD in its meanness of spirit...

I just saw this film and was amazed how good it was. Why would a movie this great debut on HD-Net? It can't be considered underrated though, because it had a 95% favorable rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It was one of the best reviewed films of the year and one of the best black comedies since Billy Wilder's "Ace in the Hole". It's great reviews compared to low box office reminds me a little of "Election" too.
