A knock-off David Lynch movie.
The film has some strange cinematography.
There are many zooms in the film, but they feel out of place. This might’ve been to create a documentary style, but I don’t think it works as well as Children of Men.
It’s rare that I notice lens choices, but here, I noticed a wide lens consistently on the main character to show his state of mind. I think the result was jarring when intercut with telephoto lenses. A movie that did this well was Seven.
I didn’t think I’d continue watching after 10 minutes, but the film gets stronger as it goes on. Very sad 😢
A COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME
The most pretentious piece of garbage from 2017. If the trailer had you excited for this film as it did for me, I’m sorry to say this is a huge disappointment.
Affleck and Mara are barely given any screen time, and give us barely any reason to care about them. When the film ends, you will know no more than you did than in the first 10 minutes.
