Without a doubt "Breakfast on Pluto" is on my Top 10 list. Cillian Murphy is brilliant and unforgettable.

I enjoyed that this movie took you back to the main character's childhood, to see his development and how she became an adult. I wouldn't say this movie is fabulous, it's weird, is non-traditional in its approach and rather a tall tale. It is a the tale in the life of Kitten, I can't see how all transvestites would be this disfunctional in real life. As much as it breaks away from the burlesque template, it's still full of stereotypes. But it does a great job of getting you to slowly want the character to connect, to find her mother and to be more than she is at the moment.

A challenge: watch this, Red Eye, and The Wind That Shakes the Barley, and then tell me Cillian Murphy is not the best actor of his generation. But do I admire him, or is it his sassy '70s outfits?

Very touching but also enjoyable and fun.

Astonishing, sensitive performance by Cillian Murphy and witty, understated script place this movie well above your run-of-the-mill burlesque or prurient films about transvestites.
