I watched quite a few films with him, but I always got him confused with other people. Even in Split; when I saw the poster, I thought it was Tobey Maguire with a shaved head.
Sure! One of the reasons I don’t answer is because I don’t want to clutter the thread.
I liked the story, but sometimes it felt like the film was rushing it, some scenes just felt like… random scenes edited together, which granted, all films are, but it’s something that bothers me more and more in newer productions.Some of the dialogue felt a bit “same ol’, same ol’”, like “This town is yours” and “This is the dangerous game we play”, y’know, stuff we’ve heard in tons of other
And… uh, there’s something really minor that I can’t get off my head: there’s a fight scene in the movie theater were Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker is being screened, and I thought that was… pretentious. Atomic Blonde keeps referencing Stalker, and I kept wondering why.
Maybe it’s a marketing ploy: Stalker just got remastered by the Criterion Collection. Maybe it’s to suggest that the director knows the film and therefore has good taste. Maybe it was present in the original graphic novel. But it just uses such a great film as background noise. And plus: why is it being screened in late 80s Socialist Germany? Stalker is from 1979, and it wasn’t a big success in the USSR in the first place.
By the way, you guys, Stalker is a really interesting film.
There’s another minor thing: James MacAvoy’s character passing for a Stasi officer with that beard. Aren’t secret police officers supposed to be clean shaven?
