My first Renoir was pretty disappointing.
Two weak stories intertwine into a project that is either a heavy indian documentary or a cheap white romance. Never commits to either and never comes full circle.
It looks like a Janus picture. Just lacks the magic that most of their classics usually have.
- One awful rape scene is bad enough, two is a fucking insult
- It's torture porn packaged as a spy film
- Jennifer Lawrence, Jeremy Irons and Charlotte Rampling and Ciaran Hinds should all apologise for their TERRIBLE Russian accents
- America is SO afraid of Russia
- Has Justin Haythe ever heard a woman speak?
- Matthias Schoenaerts deserves better
I'm giving this 1 star for Matthias Schoenaerts and .5 for Trish Somerville's costume design and the rest of it can get in the fucking sea
I got through about three minutes of it. I put in a good solid three. I’m sorry to anybody who loves this movie. I couldn’t give that kind of time. It was three minutes and I was just "oof". Is it just about spies? Is Dominika Egorova kind of like a narcissistic sociopath and she's a spy so every guy falls in love her because she makes him feel bad about himself and that’s the love story? I haven’t seen…
2018 is turning out to be a truly inclusive year for on-screen representation. “Black Panther” invited African-American audiences to see themselves in a massive superhero movie that wasn’t about their own oppression, “A Fantastic Woman” gave transgender women the chance to see themselves in an acclaimed film that wasn’t terribly retrograde, and now Eli Roth’s dangerously enjoyable “Death Wish” gives right-wing lunatics the opportunity to see themselves in a fascist fairy tale that wasn’t directed by Dinesh D’Souza. To each…
I really like this film. It's bold and beautiful. Color scheme and production design are top notch. Doesn't feel the need to answer every question.
I hope this does well at the box office because Garland is trying something different here.
Saw it on the big screen at the DGA in LA.
So much glamor and so little substance delivered for one of Agatha Christie's most beloved tales. It's like all the focus was on the glitter and not the characters. Empty characterizations from a star-powered cast rushing through their scenes. Still I love the world of Christie and I'm all for other's attempting a Poirot than David Suchet, and I felt Kenneth Branagh was a good one.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I’m completely fine with expressing unpopular opinions, so let’s go.
Dunkirk is visually stunning, a cinematographic spectacle unencumbered by dialogue or weighty exposition. It zigzags from beach to sand to boat and leaves the head reeling as to what is happening when and spatial relationships.
Tom Hardy and (the underused) Cillian Murphy deliver excellent performances that essentially carry the film.
This is a very empty film, one that lacks investment in characters, one that doesn’t care about the…
I figured out why I so adore (erotic) thrillers: they boast the simultaneous capacity to be eerily supernatural and wholly terrestrial in a single gesture. The best domestic theatrical release I’ve seen thus far in 2018. Will see this in theaters (at least) a second time. I hope my warm feelings do not diminish.
To no surprise, this film is INCREDIBLY well directed.
All of the talent, behind and in front of the camera, shows beautifully along glowing pictures and another brilliant Williams score.
A very timely and relevant film about the silencing of both the press and women in the workplace. Couldn't have been released at a better time.
P.S. that scene between Streep and Brie.
