Accomplished shots and acting/directing. Last shot is haunting. Score is great, tried Shazaming the credits piece to add to my 👍🏽 playlist on Spotify but it’s an original so I can’t :/
Thanks Austin, great work Lucas!

Burwell’s theme is soaring and lovely.
A smart, lightning-fast, dialogue-heavy mob story with more of an Irish accent than the competition, The Departed included. It’s a solid movie, and even top-tier if you go in for its sort of thing. For me, a good time but not exactly my preferred cup.
Fun to see all these young actors kill it, knowing they grow into successful careers.
Thanks for not booting me Quon!

More like a YouTube clip of something bigger; actually surprised this is up on here. Can’t give it a heart until the ideas are developed a bit more, which I hope already happened and is already filmed and waiting to drop. But still as I always say I could listen to him talk all day.

“The sequence and duration of time is unimaginable for us today. We are locked in history, and they were not.”
For me, Herzog’s great power lies in the confluence of his writing and his willingness to explore, to adventure out into the world. He lives the stories he is interested in, which is an inspiration, and is able to assess them, relate them, recreate them, beautifully. A meeting of interior structure and physical reality.
