Pleasant enough, but this should have been fantastic. Some of the episodes – like Ben Gazzara and Gena Rowlands – are pretty good. The rest not so memorable. The Coen Brothers’ 5 minutes here are more inspired than anything you’ll see in that got dang Burn After Reading. Alexander Payne’s “dumb, midwestern,” while funny, is too easy. I exect more from that dude, even in a short. The presence of fat mimes (I kid you not) makes it hard to really recommend this.
