One thing I liked about that movie was that Brad Pitt abandoned an annoying mannerism of his -- the jerky back-and-forth two-handed pointing gesture he's relied upon so much. It was a nice performance in a good movie.

Another good movie is The Ides of March -- George Clooney's movie of substance which he seems to alternate with lighter fare. Ides is a good, intense, political movie and rather courageous in its willingness to reveal feet of clay -- and not in the opposition party.
