Then we can chat about it - why you loved/liked/mah or hated it...
I myself, enjoyed it a lot...
..and here are ten reasons why:
1 - The direction - it felt seasoned and solid(guess it's time to watch Moon). Creative, energized control - I'll be first in line for Duncan Jones' next film.
2 - Gyllenhaal and Monaghan - greeeaat chemistry.
3 - The "look" - some specifically simple style choices give it a timeless quality ...seamless cg(perfect).
4 - Vera Farmiga's eyes - wow.
5 - The "roll scene" - Jake jumps off the train - motion of rolling constant with train = cool as hell.
6 - Russel Peters - Strong Canadian content.
7 - This poster ...excellent. In fact I must state again that any poster can be cool as long as it's not two photoshopped heads. Feels a little Saul Bass-ish ..very cool.
Even the mainstream posters were creative on this one.
8 - The plot - The "mcguffin" is based in ambiguous science but we learn with him - I like that ...good mysterious unraveling - it doesn't surprise me to learn that Mr.Jones borrowed from Hitch's Strangers on a Train ...it shows.
9 - The smile scene - you'll know what I mean and you'll love it like I did or hate it like some of the folks who saw it that first night too did - there's personal philosophy in it and I'm a fan of that touch by any smart director.
10 - It's a smart sci-fi thrill ride directed by David Bowie's son and it feels a bit like Hitchcock - how fucking cool is that??
I saw it with my friend Martin who is smart and open-minded - take someone like that, or you'll regret it.
Great movie ...and damn, if it doesn't feel like summer's a startin'...
