Breakfast On Pluto

I borrowed this off my friend, being a fan of Cillian Murphy, and I've watched it twice now. It's brilliant! For those who haven't seen it, go and watch it, damn it! Gavin Friday's performance was great, and just wow. I love the soundtrack too. Go and watch it now!!

AMEN! I LOVE this movie!!! I've lost track of the number of times I've seen it now...I loved it so much that I went to see it TWICE when I was on vacation! Great cast. Bryan "Mr. Silky String" Ferry is fabulous!!!

Go, shoo...go rent this immediately!!!

I am yet to watch the extra features, but I shall do. THEN I'll give it back to me mate. Muahaha! I thought Brendan Gleeson was mint. And Liam Neeson. But of course, Cillian Murphy was great. As I've said already. Now, we pester you: GO WATCH THE FILM!

So, I watched this again after I posted and it just gets better and better. This movie appeals to me on EVERY level. It's sad, it's funny, it's...terrific! Okay, I'll try not to gush anymore. Just to say Cillian Murphy is ace! He should *at least* have won the Golden Globe. Hmph!

I watched it last week. The Stephen Rea and Gavin Friday scenes are amazing. I wish the Gavin Friday song (the first one where he performs with the band) was on the soundtrack.

I'm getting it for my birthday in 9 days! I can't wait. I had no idea so many of these great actors you have mentioned were all in it!

I watched the extra features now, and I wanted the documentary to go on for a bit longer. My mate said that it should have before I saw it, and then I saw it, I completely agreed. I thought it was amusing when Cillian was being interviewed when he was all dressed up, but he had his low voice on, so yes, it were mintass.

Breakfast on Pluto is brilliant. Watched it three times since I got it, and stilled amazed each time I watch it.

That's the only thing that kept me from buying the soundtrack. It could have been so much better! (The soundtrack they put out...NOT Gavin's song, which was great.)

geegeelovesadam!
Yay, another BoP fan...I keep getting more things out of it every time I see it...do you find that too?

Oh, I said I was gonna shut up about this movie. Well, "liar!"

Yeah, I pick up on more and more each time. It wows me how much there is to this movie, yet it doesn't feel overwhelming when you watch it.

Exactly! It seems like it would be a bit of fluff, but then you get into it and you're like "wow." But it leaves you with a good feeling...uh, unlike quite a few of Neil Jordan's films. Which I really like, but some of them leave me in a funk for days! BoP is really just a great film...too bad it didn't reach a wider audience.

It really didn't get the attention it deserved. Although I understand that there isn't much of a market for films about Irish transvestites in the U.S., I still think that with a wee bit more advertising it would've drawn in a bigger audience.

Yes, everyone here that I told about it (and dragged to see it!) ended up just loving it...uh, except my husband. I think "TransAmerica" overshadowed it, although I found Cillian's performace at least (if not more) touching than Felicity Huffman's. Just my opinion.

Another thing that annoyed me was that even at the independent theaters around here, BoP was only on one week...hardly time to have word spread about it and get people to go see it.

I couldn't find it in any theaters here, not even independant ones, which I thought was odd considering that I live in the Los Angeles area.

I ended up just buying it from Suncoast after finding it filed under "Breakfast Club" (they really aren't that organized).

There's not much of a market in the States for films about Australian transvestites either, but I was fortunate enough to stumble upon "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" years ago & adore the film. I'm assuming that "Pluto" follows the same lines?

Wow, I haven't seen "Pricilla..." in years! Thanks for reminding me of that one. I loved that movie too. I think if you liked that one, you'll like BoP. The struggle to keep one's individuality is a common theme in both of them. And there's also the fashion!
