    “In case I don’t see ya, good afternoon, good evening and goodnight.”

    When I was a senior in high school, I was one of the morning announcement guys (I know, I know). Every morning my sign off was that quote, in the hopes that when anyone from my school watched this movie, they would hear that quote and go

    If that has happened even once, it was a success.

    Wow I related to this so much! Especially the scene where Rami Malek and Denzel are in a car talking about how bored they are while waiting for something to happen...

    This is such a quiet movie, yet it still demands your attention in a way that isn’t seen very often. It’s a very simple movie; an eccentric and unorthodox look into the refugee experience while waiting for asylum. The fact that’s it’s simple works heavily in its favor, and gives a much more accurate portrayal than it otherwise would have as most of these men live a very simple life while being forced to do nothing but wait.

    It’s got some very nice and tender moments in the beginning, but the…

    Ah yes, just as fucked up as I remember. For sure one of Fincher’s best films to date.

    This goes out to Tyler Perry: please, for the love of god, do more movies like this. I don’t know what it is about guys like Tyler Perry and Adam Sandler but the talent is there. Why are we not using it? (Although he is doing some incredible producing & humanitarian work outside of acting so I give him major props for that).

    “Why do they call him the bullet dodger?”
    “...Cuz he dodges bullets, Avi.”

    I have never needed subtitles for an English language film more.

    I still can’t decide if I’m a fan of Guy Ritchie’s direction. For me it feels like I really enjoy parts of his style like the colorful characters, the music cues and the jump cut editing, while I hate other parts of it like the color tinting and the disjointed storytelling.
