Me: I LOVE THAT YOU GET COLD WHEN ITS 71 DEGREES OUT. I LOVE THAT IT TAKES YOU AN HOUR AND A HALF TO ORDER A SANDWICH. I LOVE THAT YOU GET A LITTLE CRINKLE ABOVE YOUR NOSE WHEN YOU'RE LOOKING AT ME LIKE IM NUTS. I LOVE THAT AFTER I SPEND THE DAY WITH YOU, I CAN STILL SMELL YOUR PERFUME ON MY CLOTHES.…
You’d be hard pressed to find another director besides Edgar Wright with the creativity and craft to handle something as brilliant as this, the way he was able to captivate me for two and a half hours and make me not only respect the hell out of two musicians I’ve never heard of in my life but also make me instantly become a fan of them is a true feat in and of itself. Truly one of the best directors working today.
To me this is inarguably one of the best films ever made. Polished from start to finish, perfect screenplay, gorgeous camerawork and Jesse Eisenberg acing the role he was born to play. David Fincher has a handful of masterpieces but I think he should be most proud of this one, modern filmmaking at its absolute finest.
Think you're ready? You aren't. Trust me.
10 years have been leading to this. Leading to sadness, to anger, to confusion. Leading to the gutsiest blockbuster of all time. It doesn't give you room to breathe, not even for a second, and the sheer amount of excitement it brings to the table is off the richter scale. I don't want to say much because it needs a second viewing immediately but one things for sure, Thanos lives up to the hype.
