Skyfall ★★★½

My second watch.
A jam. Every moment of action is exhilarating and the set pieces are utterly gorgeous. Quite thematically potent for a Bond film as well. Postmodern moral ambiguity demythologizes the heroics of espionage (though, for better or for worse, without abandoning them completely). Forced to confront the shameful past, we can only run, as it burns around us, into the fog.
