NBR Screening – Q&A with Ana de Armas and Andrew Dominik

I can see why most people probably aren’t going to like this. It’s a long, difficult film that doesn’t ultimately result to much. But, it’s the craft of the film that makes it worth watching. Ana de Armas is incredible and inspiringly vulnerable. The score and sound bring everything to another level. And, I absolutely love how it was shot; the mix of color and black & white with different aspect ratios is super interesting, but I especially loved the 1.37:1 sections (a majority of the film) because it looked like medium format photography. Of course, the other performances along with all of the production design, costumes, and makeup are all fantastic as well.

Very cool to be there for the Q&A. :)
