Nope. He was responding to this Tweet about The Social Network:

Can't expect everyone to like it. Besides, DiCaprio and Page both have their share of detractors. The person didn't even offer criticism on the story. In a film with such a large ensemble cast, obsessing over the performances instead of the story seems a bit misguided IMHO.

Have to agree. I mean, not one mention of the story or FX ... etc :roll:

I am willing to hear both positive and negative reviews/reactions, but I think Im going to ignore this one :P

Should have clarified what the eh was for. A pet peeve of mine is when people point out a performance but don't say whether they actually liked or disliked movie. So I have no problem with criticism but at least qualify it to the movie itself, etc.

At first I thought of that as well. :lol: But I think the comment meant that her talent was wasted in the movie.

Gotcha. Another thing about it that seems a bit biased is the idea of Marion being "wasted." This probably depends on a person's expectations. The character is clearly not a lead role, even if she is the main character's love interest. Just because Cotillard is a huge star and great actress does not mean she's going to have a ton of screentime in every role she chooses to play. She wanted to work with Nolan because he is a great director. I am interested to see how important her character is to the story, but I have a hard time believing the character was wasted. She might not have a lot of screentime but everything we know so far seems to suggest that her character is pretty important to Cobb's journey.

I understand that's what it means, I'm asking, where did the comment of her talent being wasted come from in the first place...??
