Lulu, as I prefer to call it, is a sentimental, yet mysterious movie. One has to feel that this is Auster in a nutshell, covering humans dark sides as well as their fabulous way of finding meaning. Auster has done a good job when it comes to the actors and actresses, they are perfect. The soundtrack is perhaps the factor that makes the darkness of the movie even more conclusive. Whenever the CD is out, I have to buy it! Overall, Auster did a pretty good job with Lulu. Recommended, also for non -Auster fans.
