Star Trek Into Darkness
A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III
At times serious, others farcical, it's a film that ignores expectations and creates an experience that's like a helium balloon. It slowly lets itself out before finally settling.
The situation is ripe for farce, though whatever type of entertainment you think you're in for, Cohen's film provides something else --- its own tricksy brand of deadpan archness.
| Original Score: 3/4
This is brilliant stuff.
