Just Bloomin’

I watched Sean Walsh’s adaptation of Ulysses last night. Bloom was pretty good, and he made a decent attempt to carve a movie out of Joyce’s famous novel. In an unusual development, the final chapter Penelope is broken into two parts, both at the beginning and the end of the movie. I guess it makes sense introducing here early in the film so people don’t go “Who the hell is she?” when she starts her musings in the final scene of the movie. But it is still the best part of the film, and Angeline Ball pulls off Molly’s notoriously difficult soliloquy marvelously.
