The first 45 minutes are pretty astounding. The rest I have to make my mind up about. Two things are for certain:
1. I was pretty satisfied coming out of the theatre, a sensation which is unfortunately all too rare these days, and
2. It’s most definitely a thinker. ALWAYS a good thing. [Except with most other Bruce Willis movies.]
So yeah, go see it and we’ll talk some.
I’ll be mulling over this one for a good couple of weeks yet, especially if I go to another screening and listen to the in-cinema commentary(!) by writer-director Rian Johnson. I could’ve sworn I was talking about the possibility of this kind of thing a couple of weeks ago. Looks like Johnson was way ahead of me.
Worth the price of another ticket, though? Guess we’ll find out.
No wonder everyone thinks I never do any work. What hardworking person has time to go see the same movie twice – with the soundtrack drowned out for one – in the same week?
God only knows, but you sure won’t find him here.
