Hayden’s review published on Letterboxd:
"Make your own future. Make your own past. It's all right now."
About all three Snyder dc films: he's working on a conscious and subconscious level within the language of eternity and ancient morality for all that entails, good and bad.
This caliber of mythmaking is the only level at which I want to engage with the super hero genre.
The sense of existential gravity and unendurable misery Snyder builds with Kal-El as evil Christ/deity, harnessing a dark and almost sexual malice, is basically one of the most terrifying things ever.
The faster-than-the-speed-of-light sequence is unbelievably beautiful to me. Snyder's temporal formalism at its zenith.
This one scene alone justifies the 1.33:1 aspect ratio.
They are not without contemporaneous fault and cringe however, especially within JL's marred production, but the key to these movies is absolutely their spirit of sincerity and their many sequences of homeric timelessness.
I actually liked the cubes tbh.
I also liked when the flash pilfers a glizzy in super slo-mo.
Bet Simone Weil would have been a fan or at least've had v interesting things to say.
