Really bad movie, one take element ended up a detriment First 20 minutes when it felt like a second rate Korine were the best part End shootout and getaway were absolute shit and felt like they belonged to a different movie than the rest of it. Characters were also garbage caricatures The short fuse The dumb guy The Good clean cut guy The suave jokester The girl basically if you haven't seen it don't
It's seriously impressive on a technical level. I can't wrap my head around the logistics of how they made it work and the one-take is well utilised - it makes you feel like part of the group and part of the action. The characters were good, the dialogue is great, the performances are great, there area few really good tense as fuck scenes and the main girl is a qt.
But it's 2,5 fucking hours long, it drags a LOT in places, nothing basically happens in the first hour and the story is very basic with little having to offer. Also towards the end the characters start making ridiculously stupid decisions that makes you hate them. And I know they were on drugs but still. The sound editing is also clumsy.
Overall I don't know. If you stripped 45 minutes, and fixed some issues and this could've been MOTY. But as it stands a bit of a mess.
Just finished watching it. Sure, it has it's flaws, but it's a technical marvel. An astonishing film; I wasn't bored the entire duration. It would have worked better if Victoria was a tourist, I just can't see her getting away clean at the end of the movie.
Loved the part where he enters the cafe and goes "nice hotel, uhhh I mean cafe." The actors really felt like they were distressed at times not because of their situation, but because of the one-take. It felt like a great combination, the style of the film and the plot.
Negative points for not seeing Victoria's titties, unfortunately. So sad, the film had great potential.
It was very good up until the last 20 minutes. The sudden shootout was a bit over the top in comparison to the rest of the story and the tension just evaporated for me although the decision to take the baby put a lump in my throat.
The naturalistic acting was superb and the one shot idea helped ramp up the tension really well. From when they drive to the underground car park until they dump the car was brilliantly done.
It wasn't actually one shot though right? It was subtle edits similar to Children of Men wasn't it?
Impressive from a technical point of view, bringing the camera everywhere while always maintaining a good framing and focus might have been hard, they didn't fuck up (actors and crew). However the flick was a bit too long in my opinion, the improvised dialogue and "natural" acting (if we can call it like that) has its flaws (the piano scene was laughable, but in a bad way) and by the end, I really wanted it to end because it dragged a bit, as if the actors didn't know what the fuck they were supposed to do, how to movie is supposed to end.
Also the club scene at the beginning destroyed my eyes.
