Risks trivializing history and pandering to feminist fantasies, but it may be the year's most fearless movie.
Banderas may have been crazy to make such a heady directorial debut, but it's hard not to be charmed by his ambitions.
Banderas has taken a brilliant novel and made a small movie with lots of bright moments, and honestly, that's quite an accomplishment for his debut.
Inadvertently does with the civil rights movement exactly what Banderas set out not to do: trivializes it.
Were some group to launch a rival to the Oscars called The Wackys, it could do worse than make crazed Crazy its first recipient.
Banderas' direction is a bit of everything and a lot of not much.
Somehow, Lucille's plight is meant to comment astutely on the civil-rights movement. Now that IS crazy.
