    A successful mix of literary adaptation, meta-fictional discourse and inside-showbiz comedy. Both funny and clever.
  2. Long deemed unfilmable, the 18th century novel finds the perfect interpreters in director Michael Winterbottom and actor Steve Coogan.
  3. 75
    Has about a dozen layers of in-joke, and up to the eighth or ninth layer, they mostly work.
