arts·meme friend and avid movie fan Owen Simon contributes a boiled-down film review that tours his gamut of emotions, from A to Z, for TULIP FEVER recently released by the Weinstein Company.

Owen’s twenty-six pithy descriptors of the movie miraculously tumbled forth in alphabetical order.
Thank you, Owen, that should cover it! / ed.
