Absolutely hypnotic. Stunning visuals and narration that draws you in like no other film can.
I did NOT expect to love this.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
A little over a year on Letterboxd and over 500 logs brings me to this. While there is plenty of classics I have yet to see(Citizen Kane, Shawshank Redemption, Casablanca), it was often suggested that I choose 2001: A Space Odyssey . Kubrick is one of my largest blindspots in film. I saw The Shining when I was very young and haven't rewatched it since, and now I've seen 2001, but that's all.
Despite my willingness to explore any genre,…
There is nothing not perfect about this movie.
The mystery, the slow, developing story with new details arising every minute, the back and forth swing of votes. It's all flawless.
Henry Fonda is incredible, and all the others actors, specifically Lee J. Cobb and Joseph Sweeney, their performances are mind blowing.
This kept my complete interest for 96 minutes, and for someone with an insanely short attention span that is impressive.
This rating isn't set in stone, I need to think on this. I'm seriously debating whether I like this or 'Shaun of the Dead' better.
Regardless of which Wright film I prefer, this is, along with 'Get Out', my favorite film of 2017 thus far. Every character did their job perfectly, and they managed to create a perfect Action-Comedy film.
PEOPLE SERIOUSLY THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE LIKE DRIVE... those fucking idiots
