Oh, and… I LOVE FILM!
Let me be the first to say… this is one of those perfect limited series where you just want to soak it all in. When the first season was over, I kept waiting for the next, but - sadly - it never came.
This is a must-see; a beautifully-shot, incredibly meticulous, fabulously acted and completely original period piece. I really don’t see how it could be improved upon.
Spunky low-budget Interstellar.
Disturbing, creepy, and brutal scenes intermix with lovingly tender and existential moments to create a film with plenty to like but a lot to offend most sensibilities. Most especially, the inordinate amount of jizz. Seriously. One scene in particular shows a half naked woman so covered in semen you’d have thought she was recovering from a gang-rape/bukkake sequence on a porn set, with no explanation for how or why. Oh, and the fuck-box. Why? Such non-sequiturs added…
I’ve now seen Batman V Superman several times before seeing Zach Snyder’s director’s cut. That’s when I became a true fan of his work. I hadn’t realized I’d unwittingly already been one, having enjoyed both his Dawn of the Dead remake and 300. That opened the door to Watchmen, which I also thoroughly respected, then his masterpiece, the eponymous director’s version of Justice League. Now, I’ve finally found my way back to MoS, Superman’s origin story. I must say… once again…
