This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
A fast paced action film with enough meat on it's bones to keep it interesting. Add great visuals and solid acting to the mix and you have a solid hit.
*Spoiler starts here*
But the attack on the way back to the citadel was too much of the same.
Loved the ending though.
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.
I'm hitting 'like' on rhythm of Antonio Sanchez.
I don't know what I enjoyed the most, the music, the camera work, the excellent mix of drama & comedy, the fact that Iñárritu keeps the same level for two hours straight… or just the superb acting performance of entire cast, Keaton especially.
