Jess (clustering-stars) To be honest I didn't like it that much, but I have seen the film at least 3 times so I probably ruined it for myself. I feel like I'm past the point of such pretentious writing. Just didn't do much for me! I have flicked through some of his other work but I'm not planning on reading much else by him..
