Overlooked Film: The Brothers Bloom

By John C.

For this month’s overlooked film, I am shining the spotlight back on Rian Johnson’s masterpiece The Brothers Bloom. We had reviewed this film when it opened in theatres on May 15th, and when it came to DVD on October 6th. We all absolutely loved it, all awarding it 4 (out of 4) stars.

The film was criminally underrated in some circles, and it’s too bad it hasn’t been remembered with the awards recognition it deserves. Seek it out if you can, and please don’t hesitate to buy the DVD.

Is there a film that you think is overlooked? Send the name of the movie to onemoviefiveviews@hotmail.com, or leave us a comment below.
