“Nobody Knows Anything” - William Goldman
Part of me thinks PTA based this on Al and Peggy Bundy’s relationship from Married with Children.
In all seriousness tho, this movie has a ton going for it: brilliantly shot, amazing soundtrack that’s eloquently woven in throughout the film, and those intense off-kilter performances you come to expect from PTA movies in the form of DDL and Leslie Manville’s character.
However, I think there is a major flaw to this movie and it’s the Alma character. People will vehemently…
I think the last five minutes of this can officially replace whatever they show middle school kids in sex-ed class.
Honestly don’t know how to describe my feelings about this film. There were definitely moments (mainly all the winamp-like visual sequences) where I was in heaven, as I’m a sucker for any transcendent visuals that overstimulate the senses. But then other times, like the constant back and forth overheads, where I was fed up and ready for the movie to end. So in short, the best way I can describe this film is partially brilliant and partially overweight and tedious.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
- Zoë Kravitz
- The score…it really feels like another character in the movie at times
- That weird warped lense Reeves was using throughout the movie to phase out the surroundings in a shot
- Zodiac killer-esque mystery
- Pattinson. He understood the assignment. *Maybe* the best pure Batman.
- Jeffrey Wright’s Gordon, who is neck-and-neck with Oldman’s version
- Sort of a wasted end result for the Riddler, where ultimately he’s just this QAnon-type loser…
