A milestone in the history of world cinema, they filmed it once, they won’t film it again, not to see such a movie means to live with your eyes closed and never see flying elephants, and it’s easier to see them than to film such a movie.
This epic is the best action film (if it can be called that), still they shoot not so little in the film, just because of the timing these episodes are separated from each other, but in any case this is the best crime film, and simply the best, in the true top which belongs to my hand this canvas is on honorable third place and going nowhere.
The film opens with a robbery of an armoured delivery van, the episode is short but it’s shown in such a way that all 15 of Danny Ocean’s friends, with their grandma’s stash to steal, are collectively strangled with envy, it’s funny to see the trailer for ‘Die Hard 4’, a couple of moments reminded me of the truck scene from ‘The Clash’, apparently Len likes ‘The Clash’ too. The film is not some American version of ‘The Brigade’, though also roughly speaking a movie about gangsters, though the main attention is concentrated on Robert De Niro, but Vell gets not so little time, Sizemore and Trejo are not so much. Because of movies like this my attitude to all sorts of academics and Oscars sinks, if you give them for acting, why do you have to choose a stupid drama with a snotty face all over the screen, and not this kind of movies where everywhere you look there is an Oscar nominee. Yes Robert looked better in Untouchables at one point, as well as in a similar moment in Goodfellas, but there were episodes there, while here the entire movie is played at a high level which only Russell Crowe can reach, and that in that Mann film.
So to give out the role of a robber, which by all accounts trumps a good role of a cop played by Al Pacino, no one says that Al was bad, his shouts and gestures of ‘Because she has such an ass’, constantly recalled, but Robert was so good that all others pale into insignificance. I respect the letter of the law, and I was never attracted to the role of criminals and scumbags, I love this role of Robert De Niro madly, so Feligerno present a man who loves his profession, so show his views on life, his friends and even Al Pacino. Even a sick and limited language will not turn to call Neal ugly bastard, I rather stab Vincent with a dagger. It’s funny when they show our ‘Brigada’ and want to spit and beat up everyone who took part in the project, but when they show ‘The Clash’ one wants to beat up only Al, and you have to think after it.
Not only are the dialogues built at the highest level, only the stars are higher, what I saw when he left the bank words can not convey. As a major and the most intelligent movie buff I expected everything when I watched it the first time, a little firefight, a race through the streets, an alien landing, ball lightning, but what I saw exceeded my wildest expectations, cooler would be if only aliens with predators crawled out of manholes, attacked everyone and took their money. My favorite and unforgettable VCR Sharp and TV Sony (as an advertisement), while playing a videotape rumbled so that my stool could not hold it jumped into another room, the noise was such that my elderly neighbors must have thought that the Germans attacked again, Of course times have changed now and now the neighbors are hanging all over the block, I would not be surprised if they even set off the air raid and started the mass evacuation of the population, I can not get through to me, I am so squeezed into a chair by this surrender that it is impossible to raise my hand. Yes, and the shooting is staged in such a way that even fanatic aesthetes do not have the language to say that they are grandmother’s fairy tales and it does not happen. The movie is staged in such a way that even a fanatic aesthete cannot say, “It’s not your money we want, only the bank’s money, your money is insured and you will get it”.
Someone here said that the handshake is not in the register, to which I can argue, it is just in that very cash, because people are very similar, like two brothers, but were on opposite sides of the barricades, just Robbie chose one way, and Al another, kindred spirits can be found in the most strange and unexpected places. Of course, I wasn’t happy about the handshake either, because I was angry and very angry, and I wanted to put an axe between someone’s eyes. Because Rob didn’t shoot…though if I think about it, if he had, I’m afraid I wouldn’t have understood it.
As usual, great music from Goldenthal, it’s all quiet and peaceful, even sad, but it sticks in the brain. And it’s a pity about Spinotti, he was such a hell of a tandem.
Misha Mann shot his best film of his career, he probably will not shoot such a film, for like Scott’s brother Ridley became too keen, the latter with light filters, the latter with his three-year-old son’s video camera, but when the director has such a masterpiece, and Misha has almost two, all future sins as Ali or crooked mustache of Nicholas already come down on the brake, the Moor did his job and well, maybe to rest. So show dialogues, and at the table in the cafe dialogue looks better than the whole ‘Training Day’ combined (although I like the movie), well, the night show so can not just anyone, sorry Jim.
