The cinematography is stunning. Breathtaking. Beautiful. Leo is mostly grunty and wheezy and covered in various hides. There is a lot of mud, snow, skinny trees and magical fires and the story is mostly gritty, bloody and vengeful. Did I mention the scenery and cinematography? And by heck it's long
Talk talk talk talk talk talk Oooh! Interesting bit with proper human interaction....and talk talk talk talk talk talk behave unreasonably talk talk eventually get it all right. Fin
Fassbender immerses himself into the character but has little actual drama to play with. It is vaguely interesting when he interacts with his daughter; his old design partner; his new chief engineer and his CEO (of these, Jeff Daniels is stand out and Seth Rogen just sound sulky) and as his long term assistant, Joanna Hoffman, Kate Winslett tries her utmost but it's all just a bit dull for too long
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Ben Wheatley's foray into a field in the Civil War draws you in from start to finish. Reece Sheersmith (Whitehead) is an alchemist, sent by his master to find a fellow alchemist & thief, O'Neill (Michael Smiley in top evil form). He is aided in his quest by three everyman soldiers whose ultimate aim is to go to the pub.
I am a great fan of Wheatley's previous work and he has outdone himself with this. At times both beautiful and…
Sublime. Beautiful. Mesmeric. And such perfect leads, both a mix of vulnerable and bravado. Also the costume, cinematography, direction - and the score! Wonderful. I also loved Haynes' focus on how the interactions between women are made to seem unimportant by the men in this film, almost trivial and yet the opposite is true. It's the small things that matter, like a smile across a crowded restaurant.
