To The Pain

Remember that film from a few years back based on the Twilight Zone episode, called The Box? A couple will receive a million dollars if they press a button, the catch being that when they press it, someone, somewhere, will die. The Brass Teapot reminds me of that, but with more dark humour, and masochism.

I have not been impressed by Juno Temple yet, though others have and keep casting her in films. This looks like it has potential, though I am wary that the ending might be just another "they learned their lesson and are richer for having each other" garbage, though the militant Hasidics make me hope this might have a Coen Bros. bite to it. Hopefully, they'll end up terrible people, and one of them will die.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
