Undoubtedly Michel Gondry's most personal film to date, The Thorn In The Heart tends to sag under the weight of its own subject matter. As a true admirer of Gondry's early music videos and feature-length films like Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, Dave Chappelle's Block Party and the underrated Be Kind, Rewind, I was fully prepared to love The Thorn In The Heart...but overall, it's just not that engaging. Oscilloscope's DVD package still offers plenty of support, pairing a decent technical presentation with a handful of quirky but appropriate bonus features. Even so, this is definitely not a film for all tastes, whether you're a die-hard Gondry fan or not. Rent It first, then decide if a purchase is warranted.
