referring to "a young doctor's notebook" as briliantlly hilarious - now that's insane.

it is a unique dark comedy and i could see where it might be an acquired taste and appreciated by some but i wasn't one of them and certainly didn't enjoy it. i actually fell asleep twice and was happy when it was over.

basically it's a reminiscence of a russian doctor in 1934 being investigated by the new russian secret police and we learn through flashbacks of his early career in 1917 of the beginning of his morphine addiction. lots of odd characters in rural 1917 russia, it flows much like a stage play and i think would have been much better on the stage.

certainly more creepy than funny and i should say that outside of their well known character roles which they both have pulled off brilliantly over the years, radcliffe and hamm are not my favorite actors. nothing against them really, just always feels like i'm watching actors working when i see them outside of their well known roles.

i would not recommend this one for anyone but die hard potter or mad men fans or those with a russian sense of humor, whatever that may be.
