This is a film that simply must be seen (experienced) on the biggest screen possible (IMAX or 4G). I am so glad that I hadn't read any reviews or watched any trailers for this one since they usually contain spoilers. All of the comparisons & analogies aside (as they are always inevitable & rarely fair), this film captured my attention and held my interest for its' entirety (2H 49M). I would highly recommend you see it soon before you hear too much about it!
Interesting first directorial effort from Jon Stewart and starring a favorite young actor of mine..., it is an inside look into the treatment of a journalist captured and held for 118 days in Iran in 2009
What an amazing film. I was fortunate to see a special advance screening tonight. So beautiful & powerful on so many different levels. I see best actress & best supporting actress nominations in the cards for this one. Perhaps even a best picture nod? We will see. Lots more good films coming. This one opens Dec 5th. Plan to see it!
I left the theater last night feeling like I needed to take a shower and get a spiritual cleansing... both at the same time. This film is gritty, dark and, like a car wreck (or the seamy streets of Los Angeles after night falls), hard not to gawk at. It really makes you think (wonder?) about the morals and ethics of the characters and the media. The acting is very good with Gyllenhaal as a sociopath "just lookin' to make a buck" any way he can.
Hard to describe, interesting to watch, critics are loving it, I'm still trying to piece it together in my mind, you'll just have to see it for yourself and let me know what you think. The 'one take' shots throughout the film are brilliant to watch and seemingly continual..., kudos to the director and editor for pulling that off so well. The acting is some of the best of the year so far.
