this installment introduces a new and well written addition to the mission: impossible crew.
isla faust (rebecca ferguson) is easily one of my favorite characters in this series, but then again...i seriously enjoy watching just about all of our protagonists.
can anyone ever truly be free to do whatever and go wherever they want? you would think it’s possible. you would hope so. easy rider answers that question as it takes us on the road with wyatt (peter fonda) and billy (dennis hopper), but you might not get the answer you’re looking for.
“there’s really no point in doing anything in life because it's all over in the blink of an eye, and the next thing you know, rigor mortis sets in.”
wes anderson strikes again with another beautiful color palette; the cinematography, as always, maintains its extremely unique style; the cast, once again, is a joy to watch— ralph fiennes especially; and i consider it a sin on my part that i haven’t watched this film in full until now.
a children’s movie i don’t think was predominantly meant for children. this deals with the consequences of war, disease, and uniqueness to the point of being ridiculed— to then be subsequently abused for that uniqueness, as well as loss of a mother, animal abuse, and larger corporations taking advantage of smaller businesses. still, this was pretty tame for a tim burton movie. all in all, i liked it more than i thought i would and would definitely rewatch.
another thing’s for sure, one of the best things about dumbo (2019) is the fact that it’s so different from the original.
