The star is for Armie Hammer.
I knew this was going to be a mind trip of a movie and I was here for the whole journey.
At some points I found myself asking aloud, what? what? A strong sign of a mind-bending movie.
Just like the characters, that dang foghorn started to drive me crazy halfway through.
There are many ways to read the overall theme. Is it a tale about what happens when two people who do not like each other are forced to…
This is an incredibly hard movie to rank. While I know Scarlett is supposed to be annoying, I cannot get over it. She ruins the whole experience for me. Also, what about the obvious racism? There is a glorification of the South that goes beyond the typical " I need to defend my land, so I will gladly go fight in the war" mentality.
But also, this movie is objectively superior filmmaking. The pacing, cinematography, acting ... all brilliant.
I guess I will take a star off, even though I never want to watch this movie again.
