movie review - You've Got Mail

the journal of Michael Werneburg

twenty-five years and one million words

Sydney, 2000.04.18

Having already seen Joe Vs. the Volcano (which I liked) and Sleepless in Seattle (which was okay), I'm not too sure why I watched this one. It's ably made, but walks where it should fly. Its slow pace and infuriating lack of conflict keep it from really achieving anything, and I found myself completely unsympathetic to the two characters.

Not recommended.

Marriage is like a game of chess, except the board is flowing water, the pieces are made of smoke and no move you make will have any effect on the outcome.
