The Brothers Bloom borrows wisely

I was immensely gratified to read Rian Johnson's comment in IFC news, on the Wes Anderson comparisons:

"But there are so many other films that I stole from more! I'm more surprised I don't get called out for stealing the whole scene on the steamer ship from "The Lady Eve" ...

Ah ha! I noticed it when I read the script! This makes me feel very clever indeed!

Now I've got another thing to add to my ever-growing list of shows to take in (look for a slighter better-informed film review soon-ish). It's a lucky thing I am a lady of leisure.

UPDATE: But it SUCKS. Rian, what the fuck was up with that third act? Argh! do you want us to hate you?
