    The Gentlemen

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…ยฝ

    Standard, run of the mill Guy Ritchie film in the same vein as Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.

    Once a genre becomes oversaturated enough, it canโ€™t help but become a parody... Ritchie seems to be aware of that. The majority of Theย Gentlemenย is told through an over-the-top screenplay pitch.ย Which kind of lets Ritchie off the hook for all those cliches...

    Other than that, thereโ€™s a rape scene that serves no real narrative purpose ๐Ÿ˜ก... if youโ€™re after a British gangster film Iโ€™d watch another of Ritchieโ€™s better films but this is an adequate popcorn flick!
    3.5/5 from me x

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    Itโ€™s hard for me to rate Shadows because it was the first of its kind and Cassavetesโ€™ passion really shines throughout- he was a storyteller who did anything to get his films made. Low budget, self funded, with his friends involved- this is pure indie filmmaking.
    Itโ€™s messy, the sound is iffy, cuts are jagged, and some of the technicalities of film grammar are ignored... yetย Shadows breaks new ground with its improvisational style and realism.
    So I canโ€™t help but be impressed...

    How do I feel right now?
    I feel like my brain just got hijacked.
    Do I know what happened?
    No.
    Will I ever know what happened?
    Probably not.
    Do I like this feeling?
    FUCK YES!

    The score and sound were so jarring and unnerving.
    I loved the framing right from the first shot to the last. So well calculated, expertly crafted and very nicely cut too!
    The lighting was just to die for, so minimal.
    Willem and Robert - AMAZING.

    Still no idea what I feel or think right now, I need a minute. Anyone else get Bergmanย vibes?

  • Uncut Gems

    Uncut Gems

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    Letโ€™s start with what I liked about Uncut Gems:
    - Adam Sandler.
    - The penultimate scene.
    - The writing.

    What I didnโ€™t like about Uncut Gems:
    -
    This film is almost entirely handheld and all shot on tight lenses. No visual diversity. Samey shots constantly felt uninspired, dull andย bland... (nice lighting though!)
    - The unlikable protagonist- I know thatโ€™s the point but I just did not care.
    - Too similar to Good Time... I donโ€™t see the point. Thereโ€™s nothing more to this film than meets the eye. I guessed how it would end when I caught onto the similarities.
