US is an audacious & clever trip through the looking glass that asks how Americans are going to live with ourselves after being reminded of who we really are. a lot funnier than it is frightening — a horror movie for a world in which real life is scary enough on its own. Lupitas! that score!
definitely some bumps in the road, but i was sold on its big ideas. anything more will have to wait.
hey it’s been a while since we’ve talked about how hard this movie fucks — was thinking it would be productive to get that dialogue going again!
this movie FUCKS SO HARD that, after merely watching the fallout trailer, i watched all 5 previous mission: impossibles for the first time ever. that 2 minute clip pointed henry cavill’s arm at my head, forcing me to watch 10 1/2 hours of tom cruise running so fast... and every day i thank l ron hubbard it did so.
This was in my queue forever. Overall, I found it to be a fun, pulpy romp.
Really happy that Zahler is fighting the fight and making original modern genre cinema. Some of the most disturbing onscreen violence I've seen in quite some time.
I think speeding up the pace would greatly help. But I also have to respect that this is clearly what Zahler wants... Brawl is 132 mins and Dragged Across Concrete is 159 mins. He likes his films on the long side.
goddamn! what a great example for how biopics should be made. it doesn’t even feel like one! why? because it focuses in on a specific moment in time which sets it apart from the awful formula that so many fall into:
1. roll footage of main character as child
2. jump to early adulthood
3. success! failure. success! failure.
4. big success!
5. big failure
6. rise back up to the top
7. final moments of glory fade into pictures…
