This movie was so boring, I couldn’t even make it till the end. Whenever you think that it’s going to be interesting, there’s a senseless and boring flashback scene. 🤷♀️
The setting is interesting and the whole world but ... meh. It would have been way better as a tv serie. The movie felt too rushed and too stuffed. This leads to more tiring moments than moments full of fascination.
Edit: Didn‘t realize it’s from David Ayer. Now that I know it ... yeah, it’s like Suicide Squad meets fantasy. And I really didn’t like Suicide Squad.
Half porn, half “Mimimi, we’re poor men and fuck those women who don’t want to have sex with us, mimimi, she was wearing a push-up bra OF COURSE she wanted to have sex with me so I tried to rape her”. Made into a (bad) comedy. Wow. Yeah, there’s something like dark humor but this movie is just disgusting and makes you sad (as a woman).
And the worst of all: there’s not an ending that will tell you that this behavior is wrong.
Cinema showed it as a Sneak Preview. Some people left soon after the start - why didn’t I follow them??
Tom Ford made my favorite movie of all times: A Single Man.
I thought „Nocturnal Animals“ might be similar but ... I didn’t feel it. The look was fantastic and the soundtrack is gorgeous. The actors are great, especially Michael Shannon.
But in the end it feels like a „not that deep story“ is really trying to look like a „very deep, deep story“. It felt like one of those modern art pictures. A white canvas with some colourful sprinkles. Everyone sees a hidden meaning but ... it‘s just a white canvas with colourful sprinkles. Really disappointed..
