    * Lenny Montana (Luca Brasi) was so nervous about working with Marlon Brando that in the first take of their scene together, he choked on his lines. Director Francis Ford Coppola liked the genuine nervousness & built it into the film, the scene of Luca practicing his speech was added later. Brando’s performance is essential viewing, tempered, subtle, but also powerful & exposing. It’s also wonderful to see a young Al Pacino go toe to toe…

    * I’m a huge Mads Mikkelsen fan (Nutshell followers will know this by now), & he can do no wrong in my books, brilliant in everything he does & deserves to be bigger imo. Mikkelsen is exceptional in this, & deserving of Oscar buzz, stoic, emotive, collected, explosive, his performance/character-arc brought me to tears (& btw that was a real mirror Mikkelsen head-butted - talk about dedication!). Supporting is very strong also, I grew fond of our protagonists, no…

    * If you want a quick education on how good of an actor Tim Roth is, watch this & then Rob Roy (1995) immediately after, this guy’s got range. Brilliant performances top to bottom = Michael Madsen with a career best, cool yet completely psychotic. Steve Buscemi bringing a levity to his character, superb. + my MVP Harvey Keitel as Mr White, the crook with soul, easily one of his best performances - Everyone feels like they’re…

    * Great performances across the board, Matt Damon pulls off a mullet (perhaps more impressive than the fact he delivers yet another great performance), Ben Affleck is rocking the Slim Shadey (his performance is engaging enough that I’m not distracted by his British accent), & Adam Driver continues to be one of the most interesting/impressive actors atm (long time fan). Jodie Comer got to deliver the tears, & she delivers them with strength/vulnerability/honour (which means she doesn’t get…

    In a nutshell:Β 

    * Oscar worthy performance from Mr Cruise. Everyone else brings their A-game & compliments the source material 🎭
    * Edward Zwick can be my biggest issue with the film. While some scenery/imagery is beautiful - Sadly when it comes to the action it’s hit & miss, sometimes too frantic to appreciate the choreography - saying that it’s not like it’s bad, it’s just the film is so close to perfection it annoys me. Doesn’t spoil the overall film, +…

    In a nutshell:

    * For a B-movie with a budget, the performances are fittingly archetypal with some nice added character traits that keep them from being boring. There’s someone for everyone here - My personal favourite was Wyatt Russell (son of Kurt), think that guys going places, or at least I think he deserves to 🎭 
    * Julius Avery delivers what’s on the page, making it exciting/cool & a noteworthy hybrid action/horror/war movie πŸŽ₯πŸ‘
    * Jed Kurzel delivers a fitting score.…
