Tom Hardy is brilliant but this was a massive let down. Historically inaccurate, lacking in suspense, lacking in originality and clunky at best.

One woman takes revenge against her captors that is both exhilarating and borderline plagiarism. One of the end shots is a like for like copy of Luc Bessons Leon and the director (judging by the interview on the extras) wants to be Tarantino and tonally it's very uneven. It's both comedic and harrowing and unsure whether it wants to be cool or exploitative. However it is a blast and great fun if you suspend disbelief.

Plus points are the handling of the mother daughter scenes and the (almost) one location setting.

One of those no budget Sci-Fi mind benders similar to Primer or Another Earth whereby the dialogue and situations matter far more than using FX.

A comet passing above the earth (barely glimpsed) causes alternate realities for a dinner party in suburbia with 4 couples. Almost all of the film is set within one house but the film builds like a jigsaw puzzle with no actual picture at the end. Impressive.

LOVED this one. Original and engaging to the final shot.

The Verdict

They just don't make them like this anymore. Newman was robbed of the Oscar in 82.

Believe it or not, I actually liked it for the story. I don't remember it, but at the time I just held on to the basics (which were easy to determine) and I watched the movie based on those. My bro says it's really confusing. I didn't think so. 95.

Anyway,




Did you know Mark Hamill auditioned for the lead role? The filmmakers said they didn't want Luke Skywalker in the movie. That's not the first time that's happened. I told them Luke Skywalker damaged Mark Hamill's career potential, but nobody listened, He could've been Mozart on film. No. He just got the play. I want to see him play Mozart in a movie.

Ah, he's a fantastic Joker. And Skips.

Enough about that. Amadeus was a brilliant look on a man's path to insanity, driven by nothing but self-righteousness. At least, that's what I got from it.

That's pretty much my expression when someone says Michael "Cane". And yes, I am able to hear the wrong spelling.
