The Lost City of Z

The Lost City of Z ★★★★

This movie has it all: surrealism, World War I and doomed explorers. I read the book about six years ago and forgot most of it. It was quite a thrill to be reminded of such a rich story. This is a very well made movie with very interesting performances from Charlie Hunnam and Robert Pattinson (who establishes himself in my eye as a very interesting character actor). The things that keep this from being a five star movie are so nitpicky that they are to just say "do better." Perhaps if the score was a little more dynamic (although it is still very good and rather meditative), and if the camera lingered just a little more in the scenes (although the run time is quite manageable and doesn't feel like it runs too long as it is). I very much enjoyed this movie and I'd be happy sitting down to a four star movie any day.
