I have waited 2 years for this film until finally it got available as VOD in my country and I hate the distributor so much that I was not able to see this on the big screen.
There are films that are great, films that are unique and even films that may be called instant classics. This one is none of that. I’m not even sure if it’s right to call it a film or more of an experience. And…
I hate the phrase “old hollywood” and normally I wouldn’t use it but this was such a delight and surprise that I have to say it at least once: This is pure old Hollywood and I really love it.
From the first seconds Spielberg takes you on this journey that surely you’ve heard and seen many times before but he puts so much love into every detail that it feels as if you’re watching it for the first time again.…
I really would have liked to give this film three stars but there is just too much bullshit that really pissed me off.

But there’s one little thing that surprised me a lot: I’ve felt nostalgia. I watched this film a long long time ago for the first time. I was obsessed with the Mafia and so I read the book, watched films over…
I really hoped to love this film… and in the end I did. But I also didn’t. And this ambivalence describes my emotions towards this film quite good. I like the characters, the premise and the visuals but I really can’t understand how and why they are matched together in this way. There are fantastic genius setpieces and wonderful dialogues but why do you tell a story about a woman just by presenting the audience her relationships towards men. Sometimes…
