I view this in the same realm as Transformers. Also, I’m surprised they got Jack White to play the villian.
anthony hopkins is the pinnacle of this film.
he embodies the pain, misery, and desire so freaking well, i found myself forgetting that i was watching a film.
also, the fucking screenplay. the way it disorients the audience/viewer, leading us on some sort of leash, like a stray dog.
i geniunely dont have the words to summarize how i feel right now, but all i can say is that this is a perfect example of what storytelling should be.
