Why the fuck didn't you tell me about this absolute unadulterated kino? This is the best film I've seen in probably over a decade.This is an alert to anyone who actually has any fucking taste here. Watch this movie.
>>153920494>GyllenhaalOf course it's kino, retard
>unadulteratedplenty of adulteration happening
>>153920525I generally agree but he's been in his fair share of crap
>>153920525so spider man far from home is kino? its clearly not. gyllenhaal is the best part of it but everything else is goddamn awful.
Tom Ford is a based faggot
>>153920688I mean nothing about Iron Boy is kino, but Gyllenhaal does his best to carry the fuck outta that movie.
>>153920698Sure seems like it, although the scene of a childs face being pissed on in Single Man gave me pedovibes
>>153920494We don't talk about kino here
>>153920494Godamn right anon, this is one of my favorites of all time since my very first viewing. Unfortunately the director haven't made enough masterpieces like those desu
>>153920698He's a Bret Easton Ellis type most definitely
is ford working on any kino rn
I'm a simple man, I see Amy Adams, I watch.
>>1539204941h56mdo i have time to watch it now and come back to thread and it wont be prund?
>>153920525this>>153920688not kino but gyllenhall alone makes it watchable
>>153920953I'll bump as long as appropriate. /tv/ will honestly be enriched by more anons watching this distilled kino>>153920813Couldn't agree more
>>153920494Once you realize that a fake story within a fake story has no stakes at all, you'll see the Ford tricks you with nice images, but has no concept of good basic storytelling. It was just a dream bro.
i thought it was giga boring
>>153921187>Once you realize that a fake story within a fake story has no stakes at allThat's like 5 minutes into the movie..it tells you that straight up
>>153921080Gyllenhaal is the worst part. The redneck ringleader and Shannon are great
>>153921264No, I mean the structure of storytelling in general. Dreams have no stakes.
>>153921335Well yeah but the plot isn't the "dream" itself it's how the dream represents their relationship. Each his own though. I can't get into fantasy GoT shit for the same reason
>>153921439Well, all fiction is fake, but you suspend your disbelief for the first layer of falsity. But when another layer of falsity is revealed, you lose your disbelief. For example, any murder you see in a dream sequence, which you know is a dream sequence, becomes inconsequential to the plot, since you know it's a fake. For an art film it's fine, but it breaks fundamental storytelling rules because the stakes are nil. I watched GOT first few seasons for the tities desu.
mfw this movie single handedly made me pro gun
Because it's not sci-fi so /tv/ doesn't give a shit. Welcome to pleb central. Enjoy your stay.
>>153920494About as subtle as a sledgehammer
seemed pointless to tell the texan rapist storyidk just seemed like for shock
>>153920494saw it in theaters and during the opening about half of the audience walked out
I knew I was in for kino the second the movie started and there were naked fat ladies dancing.
>>153920494Not my problem you just began browsing this board, faggot. Go back.
>>153923117I think Ford hates modern art (correctly)
It has based Jake in it, so of course it is great.
>>153923337It's one of the reasons why the film is so good. He clearly has a disdain for it, yet he lovingly and meticulously makes the sets for Adams' scenes look like works of art.
>>153921335Lmao it's not an action movie, you fags constantly talk about stakes and needing to feel like the protagonist is in danger like every movie is supposed to be Die Hard
>>153920953Bump for anon. Feel free to start a new thread if this one dies.
>>153921187But you still want to know what happens to the guy in the story. Films themselves are stories, anon...
>>153921187The only way you could have a take this bad is being an actual autist or a seething woman trying to find things to bitch about.
>the jumpscarewhy did he do it
>>153920494I watched the first five minutes and was disgusted by the naked obese woman. Shut it off after that. Turns out I confused it for Enemy, watched that instead and had a great time.
>>153920494It's fucking great yeah
I forgot i even watched this movie and now I remember. Not a single detail though, the woman was a cold hearted artist or something. Probably did not like it too much then
>>153920494I really enjoyed the roasty BTFO ending, only a colossal unironic faggot like Tom Ford could pull it off.
>>153920494This movie really changed my opinion of Aaron Taylor-Johnson. I thought he was a hack but it turns out he’s good.
Best film of the last 10 years. criminally underratedhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4JcJnv85L8
>>153928097Ya he was great in this. Kino hair too
top 10 movie for sure, incredible stuff
>>153920637Name three. I can only think of good movies.
>>153929941Wait, Spiderman. That's a freebie. Two more.
>>153929970Bubble Boy, Prince of Persia
>>153929970Love & Other DrugsDay After TomorrowSource Code is just okay.
I told you about it when it first came out. It's your fault for not paying attention.
>>153923981Stakes doesn't mean violence, brainlet. It means actual consequences. If I tell you a story about a woman who had to engage with her ex-husband in a custody battle over their daughter, then that's stakes. If I show you that the ex-husband intends to take the daughter to a foreign country, that raises the stakes. If I show you that the ex-husband is a molester and wants the kid so he can molest her, that raises the stakes even higher.But if I show you that the woman doesn't actually have a daughter and is just having a dream about a custody battle, that lowers the stakes to nothing, since if she loses the custody battle in her dream, it has no affect on her reality.
the highway scene was fucking tense, one of those things where you imagine what you'd do
>>153930554But the story Gyllenhaal's character wrote is captivating
Jake chads report in
Glad /tv/ sees how kino this film was. Story within a story was justified because the story was awesome and had fun implications for reality.
>>153931591I'm talking about your inability to understand the concept of stakes, brainlet. Not this particular movie.
Tom Ford hates womenI hate womenSimple as
was it body doubles /tv/?
>>153920698>a total faggot correctly displays the true nature of roastershow did they get away with it?
It's honestly a good movie and it's cool that a based woman-hating film like this got made, but it's so funny that the crux of the film is basically the guy who got fucked writing an edgy story and mailing it to his ex then ghosting her for dinner like "heh...nothing personnel"
>>153920494Just decided to put it on because of this post and the intro with all these fat naked bitches has me hard as hell. Thanks OP.
>>153933297If you consider the cop character to be a representation of his present day self, he might actually be terminally ill, which would make that "Fuck you" to his ex quite literally the last, with no room for her to hate or reconcile.
Just a dream
>>153921264bad reading comprehension
>>153930124What? Bubble Boy is a banger.
>Victoria Coren Mitchell of The Guardian opposed the popular critical opinion, saying "Why all these raves and prizes for a piece of gynophobic death-porn?"lol seething roastie
>>153920494It's a decent story but it falls apart because it relies way too much on the story in a story aspect and the ending could have been more blunt: like she basically has a huge fight with Hammer over his adultery that culminates in her telling him that she was going to see Jake/her ex and maybe toss in some lines where she explicitly states she fucked up and that she's going to see if her ex will take her back. Completely salt her new marriage in a way that makes her finding out that Jake ghosted her all the more shocking to her, as she realizes she just destroyed her second marriage and that she can't even crawl back to her ex.
>>153935233That defeats the point of the endingThe potency of the ending only works because it's subtle and that it's clear that Amy Adams' character is still the manipulative cunt playing both sides. She wants to get back with Jake because Armie turned out to be a cheating bastard who never loved her. But she is keeping quiet because she likes his money and status of being rich and won't give it up until she makes sure that she has her ex back.The ending makes it clear Jake won't take her back and that she is going to have to go home to Armie's cheating ass and continue to live a lie and pretend she doesn't know he's fucking other women on the side and avoiding her like the plague to run around with his whores. Which she'll suffer because she is a money obsessed cunt who is paying the price for choosing wealth over actual love
its a meme to say this but this movie is the definition of dishonest filmmaking
>>153935559Absolutely correct. Always blows my mind how brainlets get filtered by endings with even the lightest subtlety to them.
>>153935620It's honest filmmaking bc women are honestly like this
>>153936157do you really expect someone who says "dishonest filmmaking" to elaborate any further?
>>153925271>>153925438Read what this anon says. He sums it up well. >>153930554
>>153920494Watched it the year it came out. I thought it was fucking great. Just chiming in with support.
>>153930554nigga stakes are cuts of meat, stop getting baited you sperg
>>153933350I'm back. Holy kino.
>>153936907>nigga stakes are cuts of meat, stop getting baited you sperg
>>153920494>mfw I watched it with my mom and the intro comes up
>>153920688ehhh gyllenhaal is actually very interesting in the movie and i like his mysterio. everything else is somewhat lackluster and feels more like a tourism ad for europe than anything about spider-man.
>>153930554>. It means actual consequences. If I tell you aThis view of stakes seems a bit myopic to me. The stakes aren't located in the framed narrative itself but rather in the relation between the framed narrative and the framing narrative. That is, how does this story affect Adams' character? What does it make her feel? What does it make her do? How does it make her reflect on her current, unhappy situation? Etc.
>>153932323they did a good job with the casting in this movie
