    To think that Denis Villeneuve, Roger Deakins, Jake Gyllenhall, Hugh Jackman, Viola Davis, and Paul Dano were all within thirty minutes of where I live, and I didn’t even know it. (The film was shot in my neighboring town. I’ve actually been to some of the locations). 

    Anyway, this movie is yet again another five star from Denis. That man has never made a movie that’s been less than flawless. And this movie is no exception. The bleakness, mystery, and…

    My first De Palma in combination with my first Mamet! 

    There’s something romantic about the time of gangsters. The suits, the cars, I find all of it to be so cool. So naturally, I liked this movie. It’s obviously iconic, so that helped, but it’s really well made to boot. The main performances are all great, the shootouts are awesome, and the sets are superb. That particular scene at the train station was A+ filmmaking. 

    Honestly, my biggest complaint was…
