Grade: B-. Tgis was during the failed string of dramatic tries for Vince Vaughn, who looks out of place, and the story is flimsy, but hot damn, this movie is GORGEOUS, enough to almost make up for everything.
3/5 VR.5 by Thomas Harris novel... I guess...? The latter aspect seems like it could have worked pretty well and is still kind of interesting, it's just a combination that doesn't work (like this, anyway). Ooh-pretty-gruesome-arty tableaux standard with the psyche-scape jaunt bit don't do that much for it and never will, Tarsem.
