Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Went to the movies and saw Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. The recent one, I should add -- this is a very popular title. (Shane Black, the director, says: ‘Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang' was first coined by the Japanese press at the height of Bond mania in the 60s.) I think there were five movies in the imdb with that title.

I didn't actually know anything about the film before I went, aside from it was showing at the more art-y theatre and it starred Robert Downey Jr and Val Kilmer. That seemed like enough of a recommendation to me.

It turned out to be essentially a buddy detective story, patterned after detective pulp in a smart, self-referential way. It's very funny and the dialogue is sharp and witty.

Highly recommended. I may even see it again.
