A fan and student of film
Here I keep track on all the movies I watch
Watching Obi Wan was very disappointing.
All the creativity, imagination and fun that was present in the original trilogy (hell even the prequels) was gone here. It felt lifeless.
There was no clear direction of theme, performance, visuals and the cgi was very mediocre, and the story was a mess.
Making this film, it has to have something to offer to the Star Wars universe. But it only adds one thing that changes the dynamics in a certain relationship. Which…
Matt Reeves perfectly crafts a bleak, noir, brooding world, where all hope is lost. Each frame is meticulously designed, displaying the luscious gritty environment with dark greys and harsh reds. Carrying the film, Robert Pattinson presents a remarkable turn as the caped crusader, inflicting great strength and fear with his performance, while capturing the nuances that tortures Bruce Wayne. Supporting Pattinson, everyone else performs excellently as well, especially Paul Dano as the Riddler. All factors benefiting the film, the climax…
The childish nature of this film adds to the absurdity put on screen. Every frame is perfectly constructed, every actor is giving the performance of their careers, everything in this movie is at 100%. But down to the main core is an emotional truth, an anchor that carries the batshit craziness, making the exhilarating ride a beautiful story of acceptance and connection.
This fucking rocks.
