As long as we're talking about warnings and warning systems (see below), please allow NB to be your official Anthony-Minghella-is-about-to-direct-another-movie warning system. Even though The Talented Mr. Ripley was almost bearable due to Jude Law's understanding of acting, The English Patient remains one of the most outrageously overrated movies of all time. In fact, it's really the worst movie ever, but you already knew that. And Cold Mountain was not viewed, obviously. Anyway, the prospective piece of crap Best Picture nominee is called Breaking and Entering, and, apparently, it's not about what The English Patient did to my mind. Also, doesn't Minghella look a lot like Herbert Lom?
