Okay, so yeah, it's a biut dark.
Oh who the hell am I kidding?!
It's plenty dark but my kind of movie.
Plus the soundtrack is completely awesome. (Yeah, I said 'awesome.'). I think the last movie I heard Simon and Garfunkel's The Sounds of Silence was when I watched "The Graduate." The movie opens with a Bob Dylan song and towards the end, there's Jimi [Hendrix]. Arlo was the only one missing. LOL!
It took me a while to figure out who it was that played Nite Owl and then when it came to me toward the end ('Oh Hard Candy!'), it was hard for me to look at him the same way again.
And Rorschach = love. I mean seriously. He has to be one of the most psycho good guys ever.
And this quote from the movie, said by the psycho himself while doing his stint in prison wins the BEST MOVIE QUOTE OF 2009:
"None of you understand, I'm not locked up in here with you, you're locked up in here with me!"
