Re: Jonathan Glazer new film

There was an interview last year were Glazer talked about it quite a bit, about the focus on the location itself in Auschwitz moreso than any characters and Kubrick's point that films like...

Mainstream US comedy has I'd say been stuck in a fratboy rut for over 20 years, the likes of Marvel are probably as close as you'll get to decent witty comedy there these days.

Freedom to have an opinion isn't freedom from that opinion being criticised. Someone can find your opinion to be simplistic and implying a lack of effort and so not worthy of much relevance to them.

I always felt the soundtrack to Taxi Driver was deliberately more evocative of the smooth jazz of the post war era. Partly Scorsese wanting to bring up film noir but also to have the music be...
