I had no idea. well then, if they think it sucks, it must be true. by all means don't see it. let them form your opinions for you

Match Point isn't noir in the Doherty definition. it isn't dark and sinister in its presentation. it isn't atmospheric. it's noir in the Bludis sense. it's a very dark story that has a very dark ending

Jonathan Rhys-Myers does a great job as the social climbing protagonist. he literally vibrates with claustrophobia as he tries to pretend that nothing happened

and again, if that ending isn't noir, then nothing is
