Has anyone seen Prey?
It's getting a Criterion release in May. I can't wait to pick it up and check out all the extras.The Triangle of Sadness is one of the more interesting movies I've seen recently - and kind of like porn for poli sci majors too as it is steeped in political allegory and the philosophy of class politics.
Excellent stuff, if a little long. Settle in - it's actually worth the length - for once lol
Wayans are on the up and up! Have to admit Damon Wayans entertains me well on FroggerAir is maybe one of the best movies of the year so far. While some might dismiss this as a two hour ad for Nike and the Air Jordan brand, there is a lot more the film has to offer, and is probably one of Ben Affleck's best directed films to date. Unbelievably good soundtrack, a very immersive production design that feels like Mad Men in the 80's with a quasi-documentary take in how Air embraces the look of the offices, the technology and, in particular, some of the garish fashion and early Nike sportswear that was part of the era. Nike's tracksuits in the 80's were definitely.....something.
The only complaint I had was Ben Affleck playing Nike CEO Phil Knight - he looks nothing like him, doesn't even really talk or behave like him and the terrible wig or hair styling just looked awful, which took me out of the movie. Otherwise, the rest of the cast is nothing short of fantastic, including Marlon Wayans (!) giving the best performance of his career since Requiem For A Dream, in a small but pivotal role and Viola Davis playing Michael Jordan's mother, in what ought to be an Oscar worthy win for her. This is a very well done, superbly directed film worth seeing.
