What are people saying?

  • Irma Vep's rating of the film Panic in Chicago

    There are a lot of great things about this movie but one of them is that all of the character names are American-gangster-via-German-writer and are therefore deliciously weird; further, it seems like fully 30% of the script is devoted to people incredulously saying other people's names. It's an hour and a half of "Percy Boot?!?" "Florence Dingley?!?" "Morand Billy!?!" "Suzy Oven?!?" and I love it.
