Viewing #1: Complete
One huge fuck you to fans of the amazingly overrated Drive. A cocktail of Lynch, Noe, Kar-wai and Valhalla Rising, one great piece of art cinema.
Yes, it's over indulgent and pretentious, that's what I love to see on my screen. And Ryan Gosling gives his greatest performance since Full Nelson.
After another viewing tomorrow morning, despite it not being a Sunday morning kind of film, I will have a better grasp on what I am trying to say about this picture.
Left me cold, but in the best possible way. Near masterpiece.
I sat in the cinema hoping that for once this year I would not be disappointed by a cinematic offering released in the subpar 2013.
Gravity. Not the film of the year, a technical marvel but an empty vision.
Pacific Rim. Please, I was so disappointed in the film that I had to doubt Hideo Kojima's mind for the first time ever, yes I did enjoy MGS 2's convoluted denouement.
Blue Jasmine. The most overrated of the 'great' films of…
Watched To The Wonder today. It may be the best film yet by Malick. I can see why critics may hate it, fans of his previous work too. But I have a feeling it could be the ultimate film after a few more viewings.
It appeared to be a work of art beyond cinema and it hit me with such emotional resonance, unlike anything I have seen for a long long time. The poetic voiceovers, the movement of Kurylenko and…
If only Ryan was played by someone other than Bullock…
If only there were less stereotypical, cheesy problems in the characters lives to keep bringing up, giving the idiotic side of the audience something to cling to...
If only the oh so awful score, telling the audience when danger was about to occur was absent throughout…
Lubzeki is a god of cinematography.
The first 15 minutes is some of the best cinematography you will see.
Clooney is becoming a fantastic screen presence.
Shame the script wasn't up to it.
If only it was...
We'd have an all time classic on our hands.
