Punch-Drunk Love

Punch-Drunk Love ★★★★

Kind of astounded how much Anderson's abrasive soundtrack + ever-moving camera technique managed to put me on edge here much more than, say, There Will be Blood did. (I guess very few of us have been stuck at the bottom of a silver mine with a broken leg miles from civilisation, while being embarrassed in front of someone we have a huge crush on is very much a going concern.) But at heart this film is his big Hollywood romance, and it's a credit to him that you feel these damaged people can get their shot at happiness.
