Fun, fast paced, and thought provoking. Attack the Block takes a different angle on the stoner action/comedy with fun charachters and a poignant message. Also, It was cool to see an alien invasion movie where not everyone has a gun.
This is something like I’ve never seen. I can’t even define it. It grows from telling a small story about a pet cemetery to a complex study on humanity. I know it sounds crazy but it truly feels like you’re watching something extremely deep.
It begins as a small premise story that goes out of control. There is a monologue that serves as an intermission between the two large stories that re-contextualizes the entire film. I can’t wait to watch…
I totally understand why Brando gets so much attention for his role in this movie, but I think Eva Marie Saint and Karl Malden are extremely overlooked. That monologue Malden gives in the ship is breathtaking.
I knew nothing about this movie before I watched it and I was really surprised by content. It reminds me of Ace in the Hole in its presentation of dark themes and complicated charachters in 50’s cinema.
