    A new film a day, for a year: 273

    94/100

    I'd heard about this film for a while but never got around to watching it; not because I wasn't interested but simply because I didn't have access to it. I recently saw it as part of The Criterion Collection but again, I didn't think it looked bad, I just don't buy films unless I've seen them. So I thought to myself, and decided that I would get it if I was able to see it and that I liked it.




    I really liked it.

    Wow.

    I saw this was one of the highest rated films and it is for good reason. I don't think I've ever experienced a film like it.

    The acting was so pure, genuinely one of the best leading performances I've witnessed. The music was so meaningful, the sound was so apparent and the cinematography was so masterful.

    It's annoying because no matter what I watch now, it's never gonna be…

    Was very good, but I'm not the first person to say that. A great power struggle that ultimately ends with passion for the performing arts being triumphant.

    I've always had a soft spot for films about making films so it was hard not to like it. My favourite Billy Wilder, picture so far.

    The only reason to get an Apple TV free trial is to watch this film.

    For once, I'm not using the word "moving" to describe how good this was, because it wasn't moving. It was cursed and malevolent in all aspects. It is as far as you can go without making a horror film.

    The cinematography is the main talking point. It was arthouse enough without being symmetrical and sharp for the sake of it. Dont get me wrong it…

    The usual comedy trio deliver the laughs you would expect. However you can really tell how scripted it all is, much more than their previous films, which is what kinda ruined it a little.
