Clicked the link in the OP; watched the trailer. Most interesting part: Steven Spielberg is quoted in the breathless "reviews." Otherwise, this looks like a three-hour angst-fest. The gal from Ghost Protocol is pretty, though.

So that must include Steven Spielberg? It is always amusing to read comments by those who have never seen the movie. rolleyes.gif

Lea Seydoux has said some very harsh things about the director of this, concluding she would never work with him again, and noting that she "felt like a prostitute."
PR stunt? Real feud? For his part, he says he'll take her to court over such slander.

It's not just her, but also crew members... Apparently she was the most vocal, maybe too much but...no smoke without fire...

Right on. The negative word of mouth on the director is astounding. It's coming from every aspect of the production.

Can't be any worse then the Starbucks where every adjacent conversation seems to be writers/ screenwriters. Yes I am serious.

"Bring out yer dead!".."Wait I'm not dead yet!"..(Sound Austrian here) "WRONG !!" (You know what happens next..)

An extraordinary film that is not pornographic. It should be seen on a huge screen with 4K projection such as Pacific's Arclight Hollywood theater #3 in Los Angeles. It is in extremely limited release and whether or not it ever goes into wide release remains to be seen.

Sounds like this director should take David o Russell to Starbucks for a chai coffee.

I have it on my Netflix queue. Not sure when it'll actually ever arrive, and how much of it won't be in the version Netflix makes available.

I know that this thread is old, but there is a need for comments from someone who has actually seen the film.

For most of my life, I have watched movies of this type, which focus upon believable dialogue, character development, thoughtful script and the fascinating complexity of the human condition.

I have also been a loud supporter of human rights, especially when it comes to race, gender, and gender identity.

In fact, it was part of my job, when I was teaching the 13th-16th grades.

In the last few years, I was somewhat screwed over by the very people I spent my life defending.

I won't get into the details, but I sort of snapped. I stopped all the hard work I did for human rights.

I would never, ever discriminate, but I just left the discussion. What was the result?

I had my own little conservative backlash.

I built a ridiculous HT (9 standing speakers, 6 18 inch subs etc.).

All I wanted to do was watch giant fighting robots, and super-powered people from Krypton.

However, I knew that I had to watch this movie. I did. Everyone should watch this movie. Not because of the sex (which was awesome, lol) but because every second of this movie is utterly fascinating. The dialogue and camera work blew my mind. Watch a scene between the 2 protagonists. They are all amazing, but look at the interplay in the first meeting of the two in the lesbian bar. WOW!

Normally, I will watch a movie in one sitting. In Pacific Rim, I had to finish, as the future of our world was on the line.

Since then, I have watched the action scenes over and over again.

I view scenes from this movie the same way. I can watch them over and over again.

I watched this movie over 3 sittings. Just as I would watch giant fighting robots over and over, I can view this movie the same way.

It is that good.

I caught it and thought it was enjoyable. Afterwards I did some digging and found how strong the press was such as the first time ever two actors have won the Palme d'Or. For me outside of perhaps one twist...


Spoiler!

I thought it played out as one would expect which limits its greatness per se. Very well executed but there is a lot of been there done that... seen it.

Take into consideration that the movie is based upon a graphic novel and the movie doesn't exactly follow the graphic novel to a "t."

I liked it quite a bit. The sex wasn't much part of my enjoyment of it, since neither of them are my type, though I thought that Lea looked very cute with her short blue hair. I thought it was well done and had an interesting atmosphere throughout. It all felt quite realistic to me, with very believable, human characters.

I watched this Criterion Blu-ray a while back.

My take: It takes a plunging state to get the full immersion. ...Like adapting to your past, your youth, and to the French style (mentality) of the characters created by the director and his cameraman's vision.

If you can immerse yourself in that state then the journey is sublime. ...If not then you are going to criticize art.

On Blu, the picture is great, flowing smoothly behind the cameraman's eye.
The audio is fine, not subtracting, and not adding more than what's happening onscreen; good thing.

All in all: .... out of five (5). ...Mine own film assessment.

Bests, ~ Robert § (Bob)

Warning: Trust no one but your own critic. ...The reason I say that here is because some people are going to passionately hate it.

Remember, there are no two same alike as you. ...And inside you there are diverging opinion sometimes, depending on your general state (mood of the moment).
