I felt the same way for the first half hour but then it started to grow on me. I'm still not sure if I really liked it though.

Also last night watched

Awaiting Suchfriends' reminder that Clint wasn't 'Clint' till the 80s.

Haha, yeah. I'd actually forgotten how good it is. And they definitely don't make baddies as bad as Gian Mario Volonte anymore.

Fistful of Dollars

Awaiting Suchfriends' reminder that Clint wasn't 'Clint' till the 80s.

The first 45 minutes is most of what I skipped over, and then like you, felt conflicted about the remaining 30 minutes or so I watched that was condensed from the remaining hour and half

Like you, I'm not sure I really liked it, in fact I didn't particularly like it at all, yet, I still watched at least a good portion of it, so I'm not sure exactly if I didn't like it.
As to Clint, he ain't jacko, Clint had some epic films in the 1970s. I'm sorry that y'all like the campy, soft-spoken, almost Jerry Lewis version of Jack Nicholson pre-1980 (China Town aside), Me, I prefer the curmudgeon billy bad a$$ version of later years.

It definitely looked beautiful and some of the acting was excellent but its message, or what I could make of it, didn't seem particularly original or interesting in the end.

ps- i watched the original scarface!!!

 


it was fucking great. it kind of skims trhough the plot turns, but that makes it quicker too. and unlike the depalma movie, it had a funny angle/character.

loved the quasi-german-expressionist look of it.

i realized yesterday de palma just made a carbon copy of the old movie, the fucker. my estimation for the guy has gone down significantly. okay, his film is more "realistic" and more stylized at the same time, it's not without merit, it's a classic of its era, but it's not the groundbreaking beast i always thought it was.

howard hughes FTW.

DePalma's version follows the Hawks' plot but it did break new ground in terms of violence shown in a mainstream Hollywood film. I think before that, the high (or for some people low) watermark was probably the Godfather or Bonnie and Clyde or The Wild Bunch. The 80s Scarface definitely upped the ante on any of those.

Either way, I much prefer Hawks' version. It's the film that got me into George Raft, who for me totally outshines Paul Muni as Tony's sidekick. And yeah, the quickness you mention, that's something I love about Hawks' films: there's never a second of padding. Compare him with so many of today's directors who seem to think they haven't made a 'proper' film unless it clocks in at at least 2 1/2 hours.

Watched this morning

Enjoyable enough western-of-sorts.

See, that is EXACTLY WHAT I DID. I watched most of at 4-6x fast forward. After all, they said play it really loud, meh, there weren't exactly explosions or shit like that, just a decent score, but really, it didn't matter. I think this movie was most VISUAL, the appearance, the setting, the facial gestures and miming, so you could have almost watched it all on mute and still got what was important.

The cinematography, setting, and delivery were perfect, and as you said, beautiful. Actually, it sort of proves Rob's point about Brad Pitt being better looking than an actor, and in Tree of Life that was true. The facial expressions, body posturing, gestures, and miming were more important than the script. So delivery trumped substance, and visual imagery trumped plot. That being said, I agree with evollove, watch it in fast forward for the most part, it was the only way I managed to sit through much of it, but I still enjoyed the view. Hence why I'm not sure if I liked it, but know for sure that I didn't not like it

Something else I like about Brad Pitt is he's not afraid to play really unsympathetic almost pathetic characters. A lot of big name actors will only take roles that enhance their cool image. No way is that true of Brad Pitt in Tree of Life.

Will Smith is the perfect example of douchetard actor who won't take roles that show him in a bad light. I thoght Tom Cruise showed some balls in doing Magnolia.
