I've watched Being Flynn as many times as any other movie in the past few years. Partially because it's an easy watch to just throw on when I can't decide on something to watch, but also because parts of it are really good. It's not a great movie, but there are bits of greatness. De Niro has a few moments in particular where he shines like he hasn't in a long long time. Dano holds his own and shows his potential when he has a meaty role to work with.
Also, a Joey Boots cameo
Let's be real, this is more a work of art than anything some old French or Italian dude painted a bunch of years ago. You don't have to watch any other movie to know that this is the best Sci-Fi movie ever made. One of the best movies, period. Amazing shot after amazing shot, through the entire film. It only takes you about five minutes into the movie to realize you are watching something truly amazing, and Kubrick doesn't disappoint.…
This is a very powerful movie, led by a strong lead performance by Peter Mullan. He stars as Joseph, a rageful and violent man who is starting to see his own flaws but can't seem to change. He meets a woman, Hannah, and the movie documents a transitioning time in both their lives.
I kind of put off watching this; these intense emotionally painful movies are not what I'm usually in the mood to watch, but this wasn't as hard…
