I couldn't help to smile when Leonardo crawled into the horse, thanks to a warm Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back flashback :°)
The movie itself didn't do it for me, it is gorgeous, the acting is great but somehow I didn't get sucked in like supposed to.
Maybe because they came up with to many reasons for the vengeance story. Growing up in the 80's, I've seen enough of that.
PS. If you want to start a riot at the end, just yell "HE DID BLINK"
This drama has more tension then most thrillers I've seen.
There are so many moments in this story where it could go wrong or steal from other great movies… but it doesn't. Chazelle keeps the story on track and interesting.
The fact that the cast is at their best doesn't hurt I assume :°)
Another superbe performance of Jake Gyllenhaal. Thanks to his performance and the work of Dan Gilroy & Robert Elswit (who are making you feel LA like never before), this becomes a movie that will end up on more than a few LB lists.
PS. Louis Bloom is well on its way to become an iconic movie character.
