“a fine name” - jeffrey wright
Those last 20 minutes are absolutely paralyzing. Tippi Hedren putting on a clinic in a performance I really underestimated for the majority of the runtime. She's doing A Lot here, but when you realize why it really breaks your heart. Meanwhile, Sean Connery's biggest ask is to try to sound Not Scottish. Great films contain multitudes!
First shot of this is an absolute masterclass. A pistol and a ticking clock - we’re running out of time and need to shoot as MANY people as humanly possible. Tells you everything you need to know about the movie in three seconds. A fantastic movie to watch if you like going “ooh!” or “fuck yeah dude!” every two minutes.
