1. Because I was once a passionate and adventurous young man that dreamt of (and romanticized) the idea of a simpler time... this movie is in my all time top five.
2. Because I am always looking for realistic, movies to help keep me grounded in the truth of the human condition, prompting questions like; "What would I do here?, "How would I react?" or more specifically, "What do I truly value?" and "How can this challenge/confirm my perceptions/beliefs to help me live a more useful and fullfilling life?"... because of this... I genuinely appreciate this film.
This is the kind of movie I'm always keeping an eye out for.
Masterminds is a celebration of how strange, weird, ridiculous and most of all entertaining, we people can be. Many will say the characters are too outlandish. I, on the other hand, feel as though these characters are based on people I know (some family). The hilariously absured realism is exactly what makes it so funny. If you are a people watcher, you will appreciate the genius of this film!
All the inevitable love and hate of this film can be attributed to the same thing... ambition. The scenery is fantastic. The world in which this story is set is interesting. The storyline is genuinely great. Aside to the lead, the character building falls well short, due to everything but the cast. The ambition of trying to cram (what may not work in a mini series) into a couple hours, is doomed to fail on some level. Maybe this could have been another Matrix if it were approached as a trilogy. Overall I enjoyed it and would recommend IMax.
Hoffman is amazing! He plays the hell out of this role. A storm of inner compulsion and scheming, rage at the core of this fascinating, surreptitious character. He masterfully conceals and conveys the high highs and low lows of the addicted gambler. He is like a car wreck, you want to but you just can't look away. One of my favorite movies.
