Damn son your short reviews are better than my long ones!
Depressing af but great to see LB birthing such talented writers as yourself!

Elliott liked Robert (on hiatus)’s ★★★★ review of Chinatown

Elliott commented on orfeas’s review of Chinatown

@Calib- in a way it reminds me of the cab joke in Network in the way the anecdote isn’t hilarious but the way it’s used in the film is genius

Elliott commented on orfeas’s review of Chinatown

I personally hate the modern concept that mystery films now have to have some kind of twist/gimmick to remain interesting and compelling such as the story being in the reverse, the detective doing the crime or something like that
Sometimes an intricately plotted mystery done perfectly is good enough 
Also The Long Goodbye isn’t really a mystery film like Chinatown is- it’s more plotless

Elliott commented on orfeas’s review of Chinatown

Check it out anyway you might be surprised 
Phillip Marlowe is the coolest movie character of all time (and before anyone points it out I know he’s from a book)

Elliott commented on orfeas’s review of Chinatown

The Long Goodbye is more charismatic and fun and a classic of New Hollywood
Don’t know why you’d dismiss it so abruptly just because you didn’t give this a 5

Elliott commented on orfeas’s review of Chinatown

Also please watch The Long Goodbye- it’s like this but with more a freewheeling tone and more charismatic lead if that’s even possible

Elliott commented on his own review of Chinatown

I’ll try avoid it for the time being 
Directed by Nicholson though
