    Much better than I remember. Wright's direction is what really makes this work. The script was only good when it was taken from Austen, but the direction makes the film exceed expectations. You could tell when the film strayed from the book and it really declines in quality. Wright has a knack for directing long shots with compelling dancing sequences and character studies. Watching this again makes me want to see more of Wright's work, as it seems he's the primary force that makes this rendition of Pride & Prejudice worth watching.

I really hope he makes it in film because there is a ton of potential for him to do great things. I know there’s The Imitation Game and everything but the franchise work and the less-than-great follow ups put a halt on his film work, I think. Still, I’m so excited to see where he goes next.

    A new favorite of mine. Hands down. That chase scene was spectacular and completely had my attention throughout. In fact, every chase scene - whether on foot, in a car, or in a subway station - was ingenious. The camerawork, choreography, and direction of it all was spectacular and honestly made me smile because I knew it had me from the start of the scene. As a fan of crime films - and I’ve seen a lot lately - this…
