Rian Johnson continues his hot streak amongst Criticker users with The Brothers Bloom, his second feature film after Brick. As much an homage to Wes Anderson as Brick was to film noir, The Brothers Bloom didn’t fare very well at the Box office, despite big name actors like Adrien Brody and Rachel Weisz. Still, Criticker community loved it, earning it the difficult-to-attain distinction of Criticker Pick. Perhaps it’ll enjoy a more successful second life on DVD.
