Bay never gone as berserk as this. It's THE DA VINCI CODE, KING ARTHUR, TRANSFORMERS, ARMAGEDDON, ARRIVAL, MELANCHOLIA, CHAPPIE, BATTLESHIP, CRIMSON TIDE, STAR WARS, A DOCUMENTARY WITH ANTHONY HOPKINS AS THE NARRATOR, AN ADAM SANDLER COMEDY WITH JOHN TURTURRO AS A SUPPORTING ACTOR, THE AVENGERS (THE BRITISH SPY ONE, NOT THE SUPERHERO ORGY ONE), all rolled into one.
What's the most gasping moment in The Godfather? Right, that baptism/assassination intercut. The Usual Suspect? Right. That Kobayashi glass/Keyser Soze revelation intercut. The Dark Knight? yep. That Aaron Eckhart- Maggie Gyllenhal diversion intercut. Imagine if there's a film specifically consists 3 hours full of brilliant-nicely pace intercut just like all of the above. 3 HOURS NON STOP gasping moment. This is it.
Back then, when the news come that von Trier will make a full-blown arthouse porn, my mind blown. It's arthouse and porn after all, which is 2 of my favorite genres. The anticipation was just so big. And then the casts were announced one by one. My anticipation was swelling up again. And one by one the marketing material came up. By the time the final trailer were released, I was already having a full hard-on of excitement.
