To Many Great Films, All My Salutes. Also to all Cinephiles who talk and preserve them.
A Good Film Is A Good Film In Any Language.
The film is a masterful storytelling work, with Scorsese's signature blend of violence, suspense, and emotional resonance. The performances are all excellent, with DiCaprio and De Niro giving particularly memorable turns. The film is also visually stunning, with Rodrigo Prieto's cinematography capturing the beauty and harshness of the Oklahoma landscape. Robbie Robertson's score is perfectly balanced with the soundscape. Wailing cries of anguish, menacing bass thumps, guitars of terror.
Sorcerer is a stunning reimagining of a masterpiece, one that crucially doesn’t try to replicate what came before. Instead, it follows its own dangerous path and the result is a great cinematic achievement and a masterpiece.
Friedkin is a master of shot composition, inducing a feel of horror to anything he does and building that exact shade of gut-wrenching tension that makes you want to yell at the screen. The rainy sequences on the bridge…I genuinely don’t understand how they pulled those off. Stunning moments.
Fincher is known for his dark and atmospheric films, such as Se7en, Zodiac, and Gone Girl. He is also a master of suspense and tension. The Killer (2023) seems to share many of these qualities, so it is likely that Fincher and thriller fans would find it to be a satisfying and entertaining film.
It is a basic story but told in a stylistic way with good sound design, performances, and action.
