Not sure how to rate this. I've always loved Tarsem's films visually, and I even liked the story and especially the clever and fun way it was told in this film.
But 240p max resolution? Ick.
Agreed. If any film deserves blu-ray resolution, it's this one. Tarsem is honestly a mostly miss director, but he hit it out of the park with this one. And it's fairly universally likable. i showed it to my family last Christmas and even grandma liked it. Went much better than when I shows The Holy Mountain on Easter.
This is pretty much The Saddest Movie.
For all it's flaws, this is still an achingly beautiful movie.

I loved this movie and watched it lucky enough to have a Q&A with Tarsem. Pretty nice guy overall, but I still don't buy for a second that the bullethole birds shot was in no way lifted wholesale from The Holy Mountain, as he insisted that he deliberately stayed away from aping any other movie.

It sure is pretty, but this movie is a real snooze fest.
Without the framing narrative, this would have been a way cooler movie. A kind of Baron Munchausen-esque fantasy thing. I honestly just thought the narrative, while clever, was just so clunky and awful.
you know this is a remake of a superior european movie right?
The 1981 Bulgarian film Yo Ho Ho by Valeri Petrov?
I adore this movie, even if the bulk of it is lost in 240p.

This is one of my favorite films of the decade.
