Can't wait for this, looks very Wes Anderson-y
I don't really get all the Wes Anderson comparisons though - it seems to be based solely upon the fact that they use the same font in their titles.
which was basically an homage to Anderson. He's clearly heavily influenced by him.
I just looked at that and thought Rushmore.
This does look brilliant though, very excited for it
Be a bit weird going alone though wouldn't it?
Might ask someone to come with me though.
Absolutely loved it. Very Wes Anderson indeed. Might see it again when it gets a release.
Wonderful little film, very funny and touching.
(and I knew I recognised the kid who was in Being Human the other week but onl just realised it's cos he's the lead in this)
novel is amazing too. you should read it if you didn't know this was based on a book, etc.
I enjoyed the book too.
I think it'll actually be 'Ayoade-y', but Wes Anderson got there first so everyone says it's 'Wes Anderson-y'.
ayode or not, it'd be pretty funny
A WILD APE
i like this one atm:
(i get the sense this might not be about to take off)
"Urgent"? How...eh? "Refreshingly urgent"? There haven't been enough "refreshingly urgent" debut films in Britain for a while?
...and wish he was in more films. Has anyone seen him in last year's Red, White & Blue? Genius stuff.
this film could probably be good, but I didn't like that advert. it looked too try-hard, but adverts do because they have to aaaaaaaaaarghsoz
and liked it a lot. It's very, um, de-sexed, in a Steven Wells-baiting kinda way, but it's nice to have a film about chaste relationships and people finding, rather than just having, feelings.
I didn't think it was nearly as Wes Anderson-y as the trailer and some people had suggested, which was a good thing. There's more heart in five minutes of this than anything Anderson has done.
I haven't read the book, so I don't know how much it was condensed, but I did think that the supporting characters were interesting enough to perhaps warrant this being made into a mini-series, rather than a 90 minute film. I dunno. Perhaps it was better to be short and sweet.
People at the preview: Richard Ayoade (obv), Noah Taylor, Sally Hawkins, Craig Roberts, Yasmin Page, Alex Turner and Joe Dunthorne.
The Q+A was conducted by Edith Bowman, which actually led to a more interesting discussion than those I've seen that have been chaired by the likes of Paul Morley.
I find your second paragraph extremely reassuring. The Wes Anderson comparisons were worrying me a little.
They could defo This Is England it up quite nicely.
Saw it last night. /Slightly/ frustrating at times. Properly belly laughing at other bits. Cringing at certain things. It was pretty great, all told.
I worry slightly about the tomatron/dad factor.
(Was there really no other thread about this? I thought it'd be ripe for some DiS crit.)
a while back and thoroughly enjoyed it
excellent point about the mini-series too, i'd love to have seen more of considine's character
and yeah, i was gonna say how Considine's pretty top.
sold out pretty quickly
Does it actually have heart and emotions or just sardonic irony?
this was quite good actually
but I think he's capable of a lot more with any luck.
I don't think it's really that much like a Wes Anderson film. Although I'm basing this entirely on the fact that I despise Wes Anderson films and I was really rather tickled by Submarine.
didnt like jordana
