Tristram Shandy

Originally I wanted to blog about the movie I saw last night, Tristram Shandy.
It's awesome. I loved it. All I will say for now is that it's well worth seeing, if only for the out-of-body laugh you get from the hot-chestnut-in-my-pants slapstick.
That made no sense. What I mean is that the whole movie is so "clever" and "smart" in the way those words are supposed to mean that witnessing genuine slapstick is a true relief, and yet you can't watch the scene without being aware that you're being put on and manipulated with cheap, low-common-denomiator humor.
Let me say it again. I loved it.
