the direction is loud and keeps you on the edge of your seat, the ending is well thought out in my opinion; Howard ends on a high note, something he's needed since the start if the film. The brothers put time trying to flesh out the diamond district and overall it feels real, gritty, and full of risks. My only complaint with the film is that the headache you get afterward, but its something I can handle. In addition, the nature of the film is something most audiences don't expect or want sadly, its very disturbing and full of unconventional characters. Yet, the beauty of the film is that you start to care about the problems of Adam Sandler's character, he is an Uncut Gem himself and I feel that the Safdie brothers choose him specifically to fill in the role, it's tailor-made for him. Sandler's performance had me in shock, he really deserved an oscar for this.
What a ballsy movie, you have a Robert Pattinson do everything in his power to get his brother out of jail. He lies, steals, and manipulates everyone. The direction is in your face and shot in a way that convinces you that these are real people, the scum of the earth. and I can't get enough of it. The Safdie brothers are here and they are visionaries.
one of the best sequels and uses nostalgia in a smark way. The film has moments where it stutters almost like a glitch in time to show how nostalgia affects the cast. they often reminisce about the past, wanting to do it over again to get a better turn out, Renton, Spud, Begbie, and Simon all have something they regret and try to escape from. The soundtrack exemplifies this, often using the music from the original or songs about wanting to find comfort. Danny uses the passage of time to his advantage often by speaking about how people either try to rebuild, remain stagnant, or hold a grudge. But, these decisions don't really matter in the end cause they all have to cross again at some point.
Brilliantly directed with a lot of strong performances and has a lot of creative filmmaking in general. Danny tells the story of bad people, most of whom deny such claims, Begbie hates drugs but is the most violent out of the bunch, Simon is a hypocrite, when he tells Renton to choose life after the trial of the robbery even though he was involved, Spud is a good person but is unable to stop himself from turning to drugs. The only person who is not like this is Renton, he often tells the audience that he is not a good person and in some instances embraces it, like with Tommy. In addition, he often stares at the camera through a mirror, almost like telling the audience that he is aware of his short comings.
Wonderful direction with characters you actually care about. It's a movie that shows the consequences of solitude, crime, and holding anger. The Driver is cunning, skilled, and badass. He has one foot in the crime world and another one in his ideal world, a world where he has someone to care for, Irene and Benicio. He wants purpose, so at first, he sought to help Shannon, then helping criminals thrive, and at last having a family to protect. The soundtrack is very well firing, often about wanting to be loved or having someone so be with.
