    Non-action Statham. Complex plot with a "different" message. Search by actor (t.co/QzHtXD1j) to find Instant options.

    Terrence Malick è pretenzioso? QUESTO è un film pretenzioso, comprendente un paio di idee niente male, scritte molto male. Però per dio, bisogna premiare l'ambizione, sempre. Quindi nel limbo dei 2 e mezzo.

    Tried way too hard to confuse the viewer with the different cuts which caused it to be hard to work out what was actually happening and what was actually in the character's minds. Statham was honestly very good in his part throughout, his droning monologues were well acted but were just completely nonsensical. The lift scene was quite good but the loose end was never tied. That is the same for the whole story, it was well written in the…

    Trotz einiger gelungener Momente war mir das zu verworren. Irgendwann denkt man, das man den Twist oder die Lösung erkennt um dann am Ende wieder völlig ratlos zu seien. Lag vielleicht mal wieder daran das LUC BESSON den Film produziert hat, wer weiß...
    MARK STRONG hat mir mal wieder am besten gefallen.

    This is the one I dreaded rewatching. In fact, I haven't attempted to rewatch it since I first saw it in the cinema.

    I am willing to dismiss Swept Away as a momentary lapse of judgement. Maybe temporary insanity. Possibly Ritchie just wanted to get laid some more with Madonna.

    This, I cannot dismiss. Because I can feel him trying, testing out the waters on something new and different. And I can respect that.

    But it just doesn't work. While…

    There's a reason most filmmakers decline to discuss the meaning behind their films because exposing the artifice can reveal how shallow the original intent may actually have been.

    Guy Ritchie's commentary is a thing of awkward farce, when asked by his frankly sycophantic producer as to why certain colours/plot devices were placed in the story, he reels off hollow meanings that gold=power and red=anger, it's all chess y'know?

    The ending which spreads the themes so thick, is basically Ritchie holding…

    How this film hasn't found its audience yet is beyond me. It is the only movie that goes in depth on what the human ego is and how it controls us. Sadly, because it is directed by Guy Ritchie most people will be going in expecting a comedy. This is by no doubt his best work and he even agrees himself. Revolver is a mind bending thriller featuring the best performance by both Jason Statham and Ray Liotta. It takes a few watches to fully appreciate, but once you figure it out you can't stop loving it either.

    It's over-complicated and yes, somewhat pretentious, but it's also thematically rich and ambitious aaaand...

    Well, a couple of sequences approach cinematic nirvana with how they play with time and perspective. Seriously. The restaurant? The elevator? Fuckin' ace!

    So basically I dug it.

    This is easily Guy Ritchie's most ambitious film and his most interesting.
