No, it's not a new X-Men spinoff. Anyone planning to see this? Looks interesting.
and nuts to you for nixing my X-Men pun.
Doesn't seem like it's playing anywhere near me for the time being though, unfortunately. Shot by the guy that does the cinematography for PTA/other great stuff so if I don't get the chance to see it at the cinema I shall be mighty sad.
Jake Gyllenahaal (sp?) is a good actor.
everyone seems to love it
this is a career best tho
Jake came off as 70s Pacino as played by Abed from Community, but it worked well enough.
Gyllenhaal was spellbinding. The film was brutal, but also very funny at times...... If it was made 20 years ago it would have starred De Nero or Pacino.
Or is it just the vibe? Would really love to see this and probs will but I have an unreasonable love for those two in their prime and really feel like heights like that could never be reached again.

Gyllenhaal's character is like an even more insane Rupert Pupkin. The only false note was that guy at the news station who seemed to be a designated Voice of Reason. Would someone that principled really be in that line of work?
I don't think that character was unrealistic so much as one-dimensional; he was obviously written to sort of underscore the commentary, which came off as a bit too on the nose.
and to throw her character into relief more
probably wont watch it again
Liked the relatively low key ending, Gyllenhaal and Russo were both excellent, JG seems to have gone for the mandatory Oscar-baiting weight loss thing and might well be in with a shot.
a thing now? seems like a good way for them to avoid being typecast, but feels a bit weird
just seemed american
thought this was very good. Gyllenhall is properly magnetic. its very much King of Comedy meets Carancho
loved it - basically a pretty brutal satire. Reminded me of King of Comedy but also Taxi Driver, American Gigalo and Drive
It was good but I wasn't blown away by it #2cents
LA (Los Angeles) seems like an inherently creepy city.
Accidentally went to a subtitles screening, which was a bit off-putting.
very annoying stuff
and after dark it's really fucking creepy in hollywood at least
really enjoyed it, didn't enjoy the 80's soft rock music at points though
