I found it incredibly hard to concentrate on The Counselor. I can tell you quite a bit about the wonderful landscape shots and the cool camera work, but I hardly remembered what had happened as I was watching. Two thoughts kept bugging me: first, the amount of neat shots of Fassbender was perfect; second, why are these people in this film? Pitt, Fassbender, Cruz, Bardem… I want the intensity of Shame, I want the genius of Fight Club, I want those actors in great films. And I want Ridley Scott making films that leave you breathless like Alien or Blade Runner. I want no talent to be wasted.
who are you?
I'm back to blogging after a two-year hiatus to focus on my studies. I didn't have Netflix for the first 17 years of my life, so I'm now eagerly catching up. I don't do drugs, but I do enjoy my films with a cold can of Coke. More about me.
It's the fantastic taste of Coke… but there's more. You'd drink this film until the end of times.
Great taste, fizzy and thoroughly enjoyable. Awesome!
It was good. Sure, it was good. But I thought it would be so much better.
I could have lived all my life without knowing this exists. Minimal kick.
Just like Diet Coke, this film was fake and horrible. Truly absymal to the point where it's insulting.
