No Bull

So in this case, my shaky practice of adding unknown films to my Netflix list based on some positive reviews paid off. Susan and I spun The Matador last night. Starring Pierce Brosnan and Greg Kinnear and Hope Davis as Kinnear’s wife the film came and went in 2005 and it’s too bad because it is surprisingly funny, touching and life-affirming for being a film about a burnt-out international assassin and the unlikely man he befriends who helps him get his groove back. Wonderfully and efficiently written and charactered and directed and acted all the way through, I highly recommend it.
