Cinematic, hectic, sonic bliss
This movie threw me for a loop for a second. The cinematography specifically. This movie felt unnervingly bright. For the incredibly dark subject matter, I expected a color palette to match. Instead, the director uses a mixture of unnerving brightness, long and steady shots, half second subliminal images, and a lack of an active musical score to create incredibly effective tension.
I had some issues with some of the framing of shots that made the movie look like a 70's…
As everyone is saying, it doesn't need to happen, but I'm ecstatic that it did.
Everyone is back in their element and it feels like Breaking Bad.
Vince Gilligan again shows that he is a master of show not tell pay off and building tension.
It's not a particularly fantastic STANDALONE movie, but it's a fantasic epilogue to one of the best characters from the one of the best shows in modern history.
