Boasting Tom Hardy's career best, Locke is an interesting experiment and it's pulled off well.
My main problem is with the advertising. THIS IS NOT A THRILLER. DO NOT SEE THIS IF YOU WANT A THRILLER.
It's still great, mind, just not what I was expecting.
But seriously, the hell was up with Hardy's Welsh accent? Like, was it really necessary?
Anyways, a pretty depressing film but all around one of the more creative and well executed films from this year.
Kim Jee-Woon is now my favourite director. Having seen four of his seven films, I can say that from his work that I've sampled, he's just a complete genius.
I adore this movie. I feel I can't even come up with the words to describe it. Kim's direction is completely assured and confident, the cinematography from Kim Ji-Yong is utterly stunning, the score is beautiful, and that's not even mentioning Lee Byung-Hun's fantastically powerful performance, which is everything Ryan Gosling…
