Pretty top-tier drug crime drama that manages to tell a larger story about individual employment as a worker in the middle of any well-performing business administration hierarchy; as with most hierarchies, survival is a question of power and leverage. This film refuses to lie to you. It's definitely worth the time.
I wanted to write about this terrifyingly polarizing film for a while because it remains for me the most ambitious superhero film that has ever been attempted, with two of the most timeless superheroes of the 20th century: Batman and Superman.
Now, I assure you that I 1000% understand any and all hate for this film. I've watched the extended edition at least five times, and on the last three I didn't at all force myself to turn it off…
The journey inward? A tale of self-actualization? Of self-repudiation? Of fear in the face of truth? Of man's capabilities? The obstacles of the path? The demand of the superego?
This film isn't speculative, it's observant. It feels omniscient. Like a spiritual experience; it knows your mind and your life in ways that you never believed a film ever could.
I'll be dissecting this for a long fucking time.
Just found a new favorite.
