This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This is one of those movies I'd been hearing about for years. Pops up on underrated movie lists.
A good comedy crime movie. Had a few of those in the 90s.
Reminded me of The Ref a bit.
It's imperfect, I'd say. The high school reunion scene itself really felt like it was suddenly a different movie. It felt rushed to me. Like we needed another 20 minutes or something.
But it's such a great, original story for a film.…
Finally watched The Conversation for the first time.
I have to say... I felt like this movie took an hour to get going. Very slow first half.
But.... once Hackman wakes up after the dream and the tapes are stolen.... THEN I see what everyone is talking about with this movie. Because it gets real good real fast.
The bit in the hotel where we see something hit the window scared the SHIT out of me. And then Hackman searching…
The Wolf of Wall Street. I'm really kinda speechless after watching this movie. I mean.... this movie is @#$%ing INSANE! I don't just mean that in a quality sense.
I mean this is one of the craziest, wackiest movies I've seen in a long time!
What I will say is,
This film.... is the Scorsese film I was waiting for after seeing The Departed.
I would have MAYBE liked to have only waited 2 years for it instead of 7....…
8 year old me: "This is the single greatest..."
23 year old me: "...piece of shit! What's with the teddy bears?"
There's a LOT to like in this film. But there's more to hate.
