WINTER "HIGH ART" MARATHON 2.0 #6
I totally get the hype. I'm torn between a 4.5 and a 5, but I'll have to go back to this one to truly solidify my opinion. It's nearly 3 hours and quite a bit to take in.
De Niro and Pacino playing cat and mouse, what more do you want? I love how cold the atmosphere of this film is and how well it utilizes color and big open spaces. I get the feeling that Christopher Nolan was inspired by a lot of these action scenes.
Yeah, this one is great. One of the best crime films of the 90s for sure with some of the best action scenes I've seen all year. The gunshots are LOUD, the tone is very dark and the stakes always feel very high.
