a lot of the time, darkest hour is unbelievably intense, with political discourse flying through the air, oldman, mendelsohn, and others acting their asses off, wright directing his ass off, marianelli composing his ass off, and delbonnel dping his ass off, but other times, it’s just loaded with quips that, while are funny, really ruin the atmosphere and intensity of the film.
a film called darkest hour should not have been so lighthearted at points. i mean i guess levity is good, but i don’t know, without those stupid jokes, this easily could’ve been a half star higher.
churchill on the subway is priceless though.
i was the only one in the theater for this, which is a shame.
actually, before the film started, there was a couple a few rows back, but when the black and white fox logo appeared, one of them said "this isn't La La Land," and then they walked out.
damn straight this ain't La La Land, it actually won best picture.
