Re: Movies: Talk About What You've Seen Lately--Part 3

The shootest IS indeed great... I love that movie. I am less of a fan of Peckinpah's work in this area.

Anyone seen Mute yet? I was really looking forward to this, as I loved Moon...but it is getting trashed by the critics.

Re: Movies: Talk About What You've Seen Lately--Part 3

The phantom thread - this movie tries to take a detached, dead pan look around a relationship between a famous dressmaker and his less famous ladyfriend. It was a good movie. But didn't quite work or at least doesn't seem like it worked to get anywhere. At times this was very heavy handed and reminded me one of those bugs bunny cartoons. Only because how everything is very, almost comically spelled out for you. People's reactions to eating asparagus are so over the top and a little disorienting as to how you are supposed to make sense of what you are seeing. Is there an argument taking place or are you watching people be absurd. As a result the movie theater audience to me was laughing at seemingly random and inappropriate times. What was dramatic to me, was comic to them. The movie clearly spells out that something ironic is happening and the dumb audience, while not exactly sure why this is funny, starts laughing unsure for a few moments. Here and there.

I liked the dresses. I liked the style. I liked how light this movie was on action. How much time it devoted to the characters. I just wish the movie was subtle, allowing the audience for themselves to think and figure things out. Instead of being fed cliche clues on which emotions to feel

Spoiler tags are different on tapatalk and standard. That’s why. People may want to stay out of this thread on tapatalk.
