Looks good. But then I do love the Coens.
with a plot.
it's bloody tremendous
that scene where fiennes is trying to get hobie to say that line correctly had me in tears
we ended up in cinema 3, it's the first time i'd be in it, small but really nice
i was in cinema 1, almost missed the start as i thought the film was commencing at 8, got in there about 7.15, didn't even manage to get a drink.
did you pop down to 29 afterwards?
i was driving so we just headed up the road straight after, did you go down for a look?
was good fun, just drinking lots of wine with some of the film festival folk. didn't see out very own Severed cutting about right enough
the opening gala party looked and sounded pretty rubs, plus the rest of my colleagues weren't invited without a ticket, so we went to the State instead (of course)
As for the film I enjoyed it but I didn't love it... review up shortly
i thought i saw you and was about to break cover but then shat it
so I was a regular punter :)
i mean i see them all eventually, but this i'm desperate to see because i'm more or less obsessed with the rise and fall of the studio system. and films made about it and making films. and also anyone doing really stylised, elaborate set pieces set 50+ years ago.
i've read that it's definitely not the real eddie mannix, but the concept of the film started from them wondering what it would be like being him and having all that workload and multiple shoots going on
anyway i really wanna see this, don't care if it's shit. don't care who is in it.
itl just be George Clooney in wacky scenarios
both are true, and the "wacky scenario" is pretty fun tbf
i was expecting it to be potentially 'wacky' cause of the elaborate setpieces and the fact that it looks kind of a screwball
There's only one really ridiculous scene and even then it is pretty funny so gets away with it
I think you'll like it for the same reasons you give for wanting to see this.
although here they are much more comedic/exaggerated
i'm gonna wait for it to come out on dvd/streaming rather than go out and see it at the cinema.
i've read about the blacklist and stuff, and recommend the documentary trumbo to anyone who's interested
cause like gb, i love the story of early hollywood
but fuck me, the coens are shit
Enjoyable enough to recommended it on a wet evening.
Turned out to be a great fun film to watch. I haven't liked a Coen Brothers film since The Big Lebowski. Loved the new one.
But I'd rank it fairly low in terms of Coen brothers films. Some funny moments, just wasn't sure it added up to much.
Not helped by the most fidgety, restless cinema audience I've encountered in ages (lots of walkouts), curse you the patrons of Cineworld in Staples Corner.
Bloody hell, can't wait to see the reactions if that place shows The Witch
Was like Burn After Reading only warm and friendly rather than cold and cynical and with a much more likeable bunch of characters.
"Hail, Caesar!" is a title of a film in the cinema in Burn After Reading
It was originally supposed to be about an amateur drama company putting on a performance of Julius Caesar iirc.
