    The movie was so-so but the character of Joe was very interesting. His ostensible stupidity and underlying wisdom were actually quite believable, which is a hard thing to pull off in a character, especially in a film (as opposed to a book).

    Pankaj Kapoor may well be the most talented and versatile actor in the Indian film industry.

    The movie has a strong and relevant message, which isn't saying much today because so many movies strive to the same cause. But overall this one was well done.

    On a sidenote, the good thing about watching Indian movies is that you can usually watch them while doing other stuff, because they require less mental presence - in general - than other movies.

    Pretty funny, although somewhat disturbing portrayal of mother/daughter relationship.

    Very interesting in concept; somewhat slow at points because it's all dialog. Overall though, a good movie.

    Very good movie. It has a strong (even contentious, which is admirable of its makers) political message along with the cultural displacement story of the lead character.

    I really liked the attention to detail in the animation. Some were weird, like the armpit hair on the German roommate when she first moves to Vienna, but it goes to show that the filmmakers were very thorough in rendering their animated world life-like.

    Words that came to mind: strangely awesome. I actually liked it more than The Royal Tenenbaums, maybe because I like Adrien Brody and Jason Schwartzman. I'm not a big fan of Owen Wilson but he's great in this movie. I didn't quite understand Bill Murray's role, though.

    Slow.

    "Are you going to shoot me?"
    "That depends. Do you see me?"

    Rajpal Yadav is good, the rest of the actors are average. The plot is so-so.

    Good but not amazing. George Clooney was good but I thought the hype about his performance was slightly overblown.

    Awesomely inspiring movie and story. Emile Hirsch is perfect as the protagonist, and the characters he meets on his journey are great people. Alexander Supertramp is my hero.

    Cute movie. The Thai actress Lena is pretty, and I like Shreyas Talpade because he's not one of the Khans, and can actually act.

    Great movie. The scene at the end was especially powerful where two people separately say to their loves ones "We'll kill them all" to comfort them after losing a loved one.

    One of Clint Eastwood's best, I think.
