Once (2006)

Believe it or not, there are people out there who don't like the music of The Beatles and no matter how much you tell them that A Hard Day's Night is a great film, they won't like it if they have to sit through too many songs.

How much more so is this true of a complete amateur who no-one has heard of?

I managed about fifty minutes of this picture, but the self-indulgent wailing got to me in the end and I had to give up. The songs simply went on too long.

If you like Feckless Boy Meets Resourceful Girl and they get together, musically speaking, then this is the film for you.

It's just not for me, and I can't believe that anyone actually thinks that this belongs in the 1001.
