Quantum of Solace

Quantum of Solace ★★★½

I love this insane movie because:

1. It’s big and loud and dumb in a way that feels like an American’s interpretation of a Bond movie.

2. This is genuinely my favorite version of Craig’s Bond. He’s so mean and brutish here, killing indiscriminately and tossing out curt one-liners that had me howling.

3. The editing is so choppy it’s almost avant-garde. I’ve never seen a movie with this big of a budget that has cutting that’s as experimental as it is in the opera sequence. Completely virtuosic stuff.

4. They don’t resort to the usual facial disfigurement for the villain because he’s already just some ugly French dude lmao
