This movie had a lot to offer, but I think the last scene ruined it for me. It just didn't fit, and was not appropriate for the style of the film. They could have maintained the true-to-life human quality of the story by making the "climax" more subtle and less of a goddamn spectacle.

There were also some plot elements that didn't really make sense in the end; things that went unexplained, which the viewer is left to guess about. Like, why did he lie about Belinda? Why was it so important for him to do what he was doing, especially if his story didn't line up? Did he just want to go back so he could not be a retard?

And how did Darius's mother die? I think that the story would have benefitted from his having something to do with that.

98% of the film was very good, though.

Detour

Perhaps the ultimate B Movie Noir; it was made for practically nothing, clocks in at barely over the hour and has to one of the bleakest, seediest films to have ever come out of Hollywood (Fritz Lang's film noirs aside). Saddest thing is that all the DVD versions are from terrible prints, although that at least adds to the z-grade cheapness of it all. As with classic westerns, when I watch movies like this I find myself wondering why I bother watching anything else. Massively recommended.

thanks demonrail. That reminds me of this other underrated film that seems to have been completely overlooked and forgotten.

 


it has one of the most mesmerizing atmospheres

Since we're playing this game . . .

KISS ME DEADLY (1955) -- One of my favorite noirs. Worth it for the explosive ending alone.

I really must rewatch that. I saw it again recently and was surprised that I couldn't get into it but I'm convinced I just wasn't in the right mood. Too much about it makes it irrational that I should suddenly not like it. Although I'll always prefer the sheer simplicity of Detour.

Shocking to admit but I've never actually seen that. I've always overlooked it because I always thought it was made in the 'wrong' era for a noir. Stupid I know.

Bande part

I'm starting to think I prefer movies that've been influenced by Godard far more than I do his own films.

It looks like fan art to me. I wanna see Skyfall. Fingers crossed I'll enjoy it more than I did Quantum of Solace.

I saw Skyfall, it was ok, but I don't really like Bond films very much.

Yeah, I'm not sure how or why, but QOS really did not do a damn thing for me. I can't even remember what it was about. I'm still dying to see Skyfall, but having forgotten half the of the story so far.

I remember some explosions, some extreme walking, a machine gun, the word revenge, and some sand, plus a marketing campaign that probably raised my expectations too high. I loved Casino Royale because it was shockingly dark for Bond, and my expectations were low going in.

I had completely given up on Bond and Casino was like a Chris Nolan reboot. Quantum was no Dark knight though.

Tell me, folks who saw Skyfall: will I need to remember Quantum to "get" Skyfall? Should I rewatch it with an open and sober mind, or should I just go and enjoy some explosions again?

It's that very darkness that I really don't like about the Daniel Craig movies. Not saying they should revert back to the all out comedy of the Roger Moore era but I do think they've lost quite a lot of their sense of fun in the last couple of movies.
