do you even exist?
we gotta find this nolan and capture him. study his brain. find out why he became such a hack because i'm LITERALLY howling and smashing my fists on the ground angrily like a horny ape!
this was so, so, soooo bad... perhaps his worst yet? abysmal dialogue. i repeat fucking abysmal. from the exposition to regular interactions. the action scenes are incoherent and stupid. no sense of urgency whatsoever. pattinson and debicki were ok for what they were given but…
thought it was just fine, not great. a tad disappointing if anything, mainly due to the expectations that come naturally with the kind of high standard and fair degree of ingenuity that's attached to kaufman's brand. which to me, he failed to meet this time.
regardless of all the nerd talk, it's still a beautiful film though with some fantastic cinematography and performances. but more importantly, it's many times better executed than the absolute waste of a novel it's based on. also with the different parts it feels like the film is talking right to you. love buckley & kaufman.
