I wonder if the de-aging is an attempt to confuse audiences that they're watching some undiscovered work from his prime before he started working with Luc Besson? God that was an upsetting 2 hours.
Custody (2017, french movie)
Worth watching. Not easy to watch and final scene was crazy intense.
Great acting and very realistic scenes.
To the Fore. By Dante Lam. On Netflix.
This may have been discussed before but I just found it. Amazing. A look at pro - cycling. Watch it stoned. If only real race tactics were like this. I think you have to like bike racing to truly appreciate this film. Its like a cartoon.
And for all those who say "the race scenes aren't realistic" or "it's a tad too melodramatic for me" then fuck off.
Also has an appearance from a real world champion. I would love to discuss this further but don't want to give away spoilers.
A Dolemite biopic with Eddie Murphy and Wesley Snipes
Parasite is brilliant, but make sure you get decent subtitles.
Best film I've seen in ages
Apocalypse Now Final Cut - probably the tenth time I’ve seen the film but first time on the big screen, seats were shaking in the auditorium when the thunder struck during the sacrifice at the end. Pretty awesome. The gas for bunnies scene was chopped but that’s probably a reflection of the times we live in...
Contrary to today’s review in Time Out it didn’t drag in the slightest.
I just got back from seeing it as well. So good on the big screen. There were definitely bits that could have been trimmed but I agree it didn't drag.
Emma Thompson's agent is just taking the piss now:
anyone seen Once upon a time in Hollywood yet? Trailer left me fairly meh, but reviews seem positive
Yes. If you want a fast paced film, probably not for you, but if you just want some fantastic storytelling and a great atmosphere that's incredibly immersive, you should see it. Totally felt like I was hanging out with the cast in Los Angeles in 1969. Really enjoyed it and I would see it again in the cinema. As always with Tarantino, an exquisite soundtrack too.
Trailer for new Malick movie -
shot on iPhone?
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood on Friday night. Loved it, attention to detail is amazing. I kept wondering where the film was going without ever losing a moments interest, it all comes together spectacularly at the finale, great twist too. One of Tarantino’s best.
Lovely to look at and enjoyable to spend time in 1969 Laurel Canyon, but for me one his lightest yet.
