Casanova - RIP Heath Ledger
Bumping this one back to the front in tribute to Heath Ledger, who died yesterday, Tuesday 22 January 2008, aged 28.
I didn't expect much from Casanova, but we rented it purely to see Venice and cast our minds back to March 2006 and our time in that wonderful, unique city. But what an enjoyable romp it was -- huge fun from beginning to end.
This really is Hollywood at its kitschest, silliest, laugh-out-loud best. The cast are all good, with Oliver Platt putting in a fucking genius performance. This is right up there: 75 points.
