    Southland Tales

    ★★★

    Until last night I have avoided everything that's connected with Richard Kelly's Southland Tales.

    -It feels like Kelly went for his own interpretation of Mulholland Dr. (obvious)

    -This movie isn't cipherable at all but this is a good thing

    -Political commentary is pretty on point (but it ain't no Starship Troopers)

    -Performances are all over the shop and at times OTT with Justin

    -I stand by Sarah Michelle Gellar

    -Musical moments are utterly bizarre

    -Moby's score…

While my knowledge of this moment in history isn't strong I do feel that Pontecorvo has educated me. There is no forced drama or love story. The narrative along with Ennio Morricone score set a mood and tone of regret, lose and hope. Phenomenal film-making.

Originally a Stephen Spielberg movie, Nolan only took over the job back in 2012 as his brother and co-script writer brother Jonathan Nolan was on board prior. This is a high pressure film for Nolan as it needs to succeed after his great form as of late with films like the Dark Knight trilogy, Inception and The Prestige. People have been claiming…
