Better than 105 F without a/c, but that’s about it. Might have been two stars, but the mechanical conditions in the Scranton movie theater were so miserable that the lot of us got our money back–green lines on screen for most of the 2 1/2 hour running time, and a total fuckup with the horizontal alignment during the final shootout left everybody wondering wtf had happened. I’ll confess to being mildly interested in the production design–the pastels are muted but always present in the background of shots–and that’s about the best thing I can say for this film.
