Ripley's movie review

When I read that this was based on a Leonard Cohen novel, I was afraid that it would be too deep for the mood I was in. As it turned out, the movie was just pretentious. The narration was ok but the dialogue was unnnatural, the acting was mediocre, and Bourne spent most of the movie looking smug. On the plus side, it was well-made, there was plenty of nudity, even of the full frontal male kind, and it featured lots of Cohen's music. As great as that music is, it wasn't enough.
