It's an honor to start with the first review or opinion, which is about the latest from Nolan, Tenet.

 

Let's say Nolan, you were in your kitchen and you wanted something with everything you are passionate about; then he took the lid off the shaker and added: science fiction, thriller, spy movies, large-scale action, mystery, and a good deal of "time"; He shook it eagerly and a cocktail called Tenet came out.

 

It is a short film despite lasting more than two hours, for all the amount of details it has, which at first viewing it is easy to miss them or not be aware of their presence.

The characters comply but without really shining, always having the story above all; to highlight one, Pattinson and Branagh would say.

The film is a continuous fight against time, both of the characters and of Nolan himself, being something good and bad at the same time.

 

Regarding the story, staging, audiovisual theme; It is undeniable that we are facing something unique and must be viewed on the big screen, if you want to take full advantage of it.

The action scenes, chases, confrontations; each more incredible than the last.

 

In short, an original and surprising film highlighting the audiovisual above all. With a plot and story, which can be confusing for certain reasons or reasons, but if you try to understand them you may miss the following ones and get even more confused hehe.

 

So, as they say in it: "don't try to understand it, feel it."
But then you see her again to find out everything or at least try.

Finally saw Nocturnal Animals. One of the first movies to make me think if only a different director had it throughout its duration. I feel like Ford prioritized style over the story.

 

I have not watched Nocturnal Animals in awhile and I really do not remember it that much... I’ll put that on my watchlist, thanks!

Finally saw Nocturnal Animals. One of the first movies to make me think if only a different director had it throughout its duration. I feel like Ford prioritized style over the story.

 

I liked it a lot. I think it was one of the best 2016 movies; and seeing the mediocrity of some award-winning films that year, I think "Nocturnal Animals" was ignored in the nominations for the usual awards because some kind of prejudice against its director; after all, he's a designer and not a director, is someone outside the bussiness.

 

But in my opinion he did a great job. The movie is a gem.

 

It's true that it places a special emphasis on the visual consideration of the film, but it is still a great story and a great narrative.
In fact, the first scene, with the family traveling at night by car on a lonely road, shows a totally unexpected talent in a director with so little experience: that scene is tense, it's intense, it twists your stomach; and although it already we've seen other times in other movies, it's shot in a way that you can't look away.

 

The most important thing was to find in the dark and in such a palpable way, as well as poetic, a reality so common and acceptable in many cases. Because anyone has been able to meet a Tony Hastings / Edward Sheffield in different places, with different names, or other faces. Both men and women. It's not about identification, but about silently contemplating a reality - and a feeling - authentic, and common, expressed with a subtle elegance and a certain cinematographic expertise when filming.

 

By the way, the music of Abel Korzeniowski in the film is brilliant.  A little wonder.

 

Hopefully someday someone will dare to make a Collector's Edition.

Overall, it's a good movie but I think with Ford you're not getting anything earth shattering. Now to think about it, you reminded me of one of my thoughts about the movie. He crafts a number of visual scenes but gives them no space to breathe. For example, showing your character taking a shower or bath overcome by emotion is no new occurrence in cinema yet we get this three times at least. At the same time, these scenes have no standing room in the pacing of the movie. The plot weighs heavy on them because we have more story to tell. The audience is waiting for the next piece of the puzzle and the character has another scene to deliver. I think it was difficult to balance a study of the characters with moving back and forth between different stories and timelines. However, I still enjoyed the movie. It was just quite ambitious for Ford. With that said, it's surprising that he hasn't overseen his own premium release for both his films. If not him, it would be nice to see Criterion, Plain Archive, etc. tackle the project.

 

I'm backtracking but I think a lot of the car scene rested on the performances of Johnson and Gyllenhaal, especially Gyllenhaal. You could feel the heavy weight of his manhood being challenged and his desire to take action but ultimately feeling helpless. And then you have his daughter who is not helping the situation. Out of context, the daughter is a funny representation of youth today. She will not shut up and her parents continue to apologize for her, she's just a child, she's just a child.

That happened with a steelbook I purchased. I know I bought it, even dug up the receipt but can't find it anywhere. Ended up buying a duplicate. :/

Coming to Blu-ray April 6th from Kino Classics and the Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau Foundation!

The Man in Search of his Murderer (1931)
Directed by Robert Siodmak
Starring Heinz Rühmann
Screenplay by Ludwig Hirschfeld, Curt Siodmak and Billy Wilder

Prior to emigratng to the U.S., where he would make such classics as The Spiral Staircase and The Killers, Robert Siodmak took a familiar black comedy premise and transformed it into a diabolical thriller. Heinz Rühmann, employing his trademark persona of the childlike naïf, portrays Hans, a despondent young man who decides to murder himself by hiring a burglar to commit the crime. But when Hans’s life takes an unexpected turn for the better, he realizes he must locate and stop the killer before the contract can be fulfilled. Combining morbid comedy with broad slapstick, The Man in Search of His Murderer owes much of its comic sensibilities to screenwriters Billy Wilder (Double Indemnity) and Curt Siodmak (The Wolf Man) who were also soon to leave Germany, to later enjoy fruitful careers in Hollywood. 

Special features:
*Audio commentary by film historian Josh Nelson
*Optional English subtitles
