Wow, cool review bro.
I dunno - a nice wee flick, often funny, etc. Probably about as substantial and straightforward as a Richard Curtis movie, although perhaps I was only looking for anything more because it wasn't in English? I like that they worked in some real life historical events to the setting (Almeria, down on the south coast of Spain, 1966), e.g. the US accidentally dropping nukes there, and, more central to the plot, Lennon filming a movie there.
Moody revenge flick set in Derbyshire, UK. Picturesque little villages and petty gangster types. I liked it a lot - Paddy Considine is great in it.
Not sure of the background to this, but it feels very low budget. Various scenes conveying characters are in altered states etc. all look pretty rough. Dialogue volume is all over the show, I reckon I missed maybe a fifth of what was said. Still good though.
Gyllenhal is heaps better in Prince of Persia, but it's still pretty good. #trollololol
Nah but seriously. You know whether you're up for a boxing pic, and this is all incredibly straightforward fallen hero arc stuff... BUT I gave a shit about what was happening, during the boxing and during the rest of it.
The "behind every great man..." schtick still going strong in 2015 and Bechdel-Wallace test squarely failed.
Forest Whitaker explicitly in the teacher role comes through with reassuring nuance, fumbling over his pearls of wisdom sometimes, called out for lying, etc.
