We watched The Princess and the Warrior. It would be an excellent little thinker of a film if somebody took a razor to it got rid of about 45 minutes of film. It was as if after Run Lola Run, Tykwer decided that he was now important, and he could just spout crap for 2:15 and expect it to be worth watching. For the first bit it had that nice unstoppable rhythmic quality of his earlier classic, after which it stalled and just the life out of the screen. I like tense contemplative ponderous films, but there can be way too much of a good thing. Watch it in fast-forward. 6/10.
