A SINGLE MAN

Finally got around to seeing the moody film A SINGLE MAN. I can see why some people did not like it; the film has almost no plot or action in it, yet I found it involving. It's a beautiful film, with rich, gorgeous cinematography and art direction, and a very nice score. There's a nice use of color in the film.

The acting is quite good and everyone is well cast. However, the last third of the film seems to meander a bit aimlessly even though the plot and action finally pick up. The ending is very unsatisfying; I almost wish nothing had happened at the end instead of trying to give a it a finale that seems meaningless.

Nonetheless, worth a viewing.
