This is not your typical prison movie. The good guy doesn't do as expected. The pieces of the story seem to lead one way but then things change. I was glad to see one of the former "Lost" stars finally get something that was equal to his talent. This is definately worth your time.
Some of the best action scenes I've seen and I don't like action scenes that much. The story gets lost in the the chaotic car chases but you won't be disappointed if you like great action that has a realistic edge. People die in those car chases. You have to wait for the story line to come back together but it does.
A martial arts dojo is a strange place. I've spent many years learning JuJitsu, Aikido, and kickboxing and the lessons of "the Art of Self Defense" are spot on. Jesse Eisenberg captures the fanatical devotion some place in martial arts but Alessandro Nova provides sour dose of reality that Eisenberg must face. It's funny in a way similar to "Fight Club" . If you are studying martial arts of any kind - go see this.
The point of the movie is in the title. This isn't just an attempt to freshen up the music of the Beatles. It is much more. Anyone who was a teenager when the Beatles changed pop music will understand this movie . The movie really wants to put you back in that place when music was the most exciting thing in the world. Patel is the perfect choice for the 'too round' solo version of the Beatles but his relationship with Lily James evokes the innocence of the times. There were points in the move where I was moved but the humorous touches keep this from being sentimental. This is a movie meant for the boomer generation that succeeds.
This is a movie about a woman in love with a heroin addict but it tries to be much more. Symbolism and imagery does not usually work in movies and I don't know why they thought it would work here. Addiction dramas have to have some kind of action or they are painfully boring. I managed to watch the whole thing but there was only a tiny thread of thematic unity in the movie. Stay home and watch Fleabag - which covers some of the same territory much more effectively.
