Nice bump, Chrissi!  I checked Melissa's link above--to all the BBM reviews--and it still works!  A treasure trove of reviews.

You know, this thread made me re-read certain reviews I bookmarked when the film first premiered. And oh, those are still very good reads - well worth re-visiting!! :) Here's a couple of quotes from The Stanford Daily's review on December 8:


On HL's and JG's role performances:

"Their chemistry is thick and natural, leaving the audience with a persistent case of the butterflies."



And specifically on Heath:

"Ledger (  ) succeeds wildly in a role so completely original that he seems to have had nothing to draw on aside from a tremendous amount of heart."


Ain't those review comments nothing but the plain truth?

These are great!  Thanks for bumping, Chrissi.  8)

Nice bump, Chrissi!


The Toronto Star:
“It’s a movie about love that knows no boundaries and loneliness that knows no relief…(…)”


This just threw me - after all these years, a couple of words can still floor me...   :-\
