I thought i was going to like this because art history was practically the only thing i liked about my 6 months as a design student. It really fell short for me, I’m not sure if it was the characters, all a bit too odd, but really the ending really threw me. Afterwards i just felt stupid for not figuring it out, there aren’t many movies i walk away from not liking. The Best Offer managed to leave me feeling both nauseous, sad and just all around confused. I think it was popular enough to make me feel disappointed, the small cinema i saw it in was full of middle aged Melbournites. I just wonder whether anybody else felt the same, but there’s this weird sense of patriotism when it comes to australian actors so it feels almost wrong to be writing this saying i didn’t like it. Like i’m somehow betraying australian cinema, whatever i just wish i had never seen it.
