how great is this film? especially the cameo from Mr Tom Waits.
After being told... "He’s a writer."
"I know, I could smell the booze."
Self-aware to the point it became unwatchable. And I'm a big Charlie Kaufman fan so that stuff done well is among my favourite things. Done badly though... painful to sit through.
went into it not realising it was by the in bruges chappy, but it became very obvious that it was very quickly, and then was very disappointing with it
It took me several sittings to watch it, for vairous reasons, which maybe didn't help, as I was in different moods each time. Loved bits, hated bits, was totally indifferent to bits. Obviously found the dog-napping element deeply distressing and had mightmares/ cried a bit.
Zachariah: "I shoulda helped her kill that hippie."
Noticed it's up on Netflix the other day, might have another watch
even if at points it seemed a bit like a collection of disparate stories and rambling monologues. Some of the scenes were actually surprisingly affecting too which I wasn't expecting.
because Martin McDonagh has done stuff that's a million times better (In Bruges fer a start)
still some great moments, but some of the pomo stuff didn't really work at all (like commenting on the fact that all your female characters are shit doesn't make them any better, just draws your attention to it even more)
But someone on here recommended 'The Guard' in a previous Seven Psychopaths thread. That's really good.
Went in with low expectations. Everyone that I spoke to said it was terrible comparing to In Bruges. And obviously it isn't as good. But it's a great movie, Sam Rockwell is excellent in it (as always).
The 'Put your hands up' bit with Walken made me double over.
actioner and was really impressed with what i got.
understand people saying it was too self-referential for its own good but i personally enjoyed that aspect of it as i didn't feel it came across as smug, just credited the audience with a little knowledge of the film industry etc.
was also funny, thrilling and had the beautiful sam rockwell in it.
couldn't find fault.
