"It's the complexity. It's the moral grey areas that are interesting."
I really thought it was going to be Downey vs Gosling at the Oscars, but it really should be Downey vs Melton, holy shit what a performance.
Other than that, I would love to write something more about this one, but this movie is too complex to put my feelings into words just yet, I feel like I need to see this at least one more time.
Absolutely terrifying picture, every performance was flawless, felt like what I was watching was real. Todd Haynes is truly one of a kind.
"I found the crown of France in the gutter. I picked it up with the tip of my sword and cleaned it, and placed it atop my own head."
Went into this one pretty skeptical as I had heard mostly negative stuff about it, but wow. Ridley had me glued to the screen the whole movie, didn't really mind all the Josephine scenes, didn't really mind that they made Napoleon a pathetic horny little guy that nobody really liked -…
Pretty insane. Pacing of this movie adds to the tension, drawing you into a world where the line between sanity and madness blurs. The film's eerie visuals and haunting cinematography create an unsettling backdrop for the unfolding enigma.
Sometimes it is worth it to give a film you've just stumbled across priority over those you've had in your watchlist for months, and this is personally one of the best examples.
