Breakfast on Pluto (**)

Breakfast on Pluto is a film I really want to like. It's well-acted, especially by Cillian Murphy, who with this, Red Eye, and Batman Begins, is having a wonderful career year. It's well-directed by Neil Jordan, with flourishes of Amelie-style quirkiness, like talking birds. In fact, I really liked some of the imagery on display here, but I didn't find the story all that engaging, and the movie itself is mostly a hit or miss affair. It's a tad too long as well, and drags a lot of the time. What keeps the viewer entertained though is the rockin' soundtrack of obscure 60's pop scattered throughout the film. Great, great soundtrack. Good music can always disguise a less than entertaining film. Such is the case here, as the movie has been pretty well-reviewed. See for yourself, of course, but your time is probably better spent elsewhere.
