    Snake Eyes

    ★★★★½

    The first time SNAKE EYES landed on my radar it is when I randomly saw a post saying how the original ending was cut before it was completed. As a massive De Palma and Cage fan, I was interested regardless but for some reason I thought it was a languid drama about a gambler. When one of my friends recently watched it and I learned it was in fact a tight thriller, I put it on in short order.

    Adrien Brody’s 94 minute cover of “Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)”

    There’s barely a scene in this that isn’t poorly ripped off from some other modern tough guy movie; JOHN WICK, GRAN TORINO, MANDY, and so on. The inciting incident doesn’t happen until at least 50 minutes in, let alone any action. Brody’s trying to demonstrate he can still be a leading man and drop sick beats. Roundly fails on both accounts. Some amusement to be found from the self-seriousness and nonsense writing (“sometimes I still wonder who’s the saved…and who’s the savior…”)

    Well this lived up to, if not outright exceeded, the tremendous hype around it. For all the praise it has been getting, what I did not know is that it would be easily the most entertaining and thrilling film of the year. There’s not much more one could want in a movie than what’s in all of this.

    Bong Joon-Ho is, of course, a master filmmaker who knows how to craft films as twisty as they are strange, as brilliant…
