I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to this. Suffice it to say, I might break my rule about avoiding the movie theatre and seeing this there, that's how much. Points made in this article are one of the reasons why: they don't want to answer everything/spoon-feed the answers to you. They seem to recognizer that one of the things that makes a film less forgettable is when it makes you think, something i feel Hollywood has all but forgotten (or, in a lot of cases, never even learned).
