Death and its toll
Since the review I've read talks only about the technical aspects of the movie, I feel like dropping by my feelings while I was watching the movie.
I was expecting to watch a movie with some good ol'shooting going around, but I was terrible wrong, but surprisely not disappointed. This movie tells history, what comes packed together is a story of a man and a boy, both trying to survive in an hostile environment which was in the turmoil of change, they are somehow uncertain of their future as they swung between manhood, confidence, trust, fear and love. Brad Pitt was never a pretty face and he shows it to us at every single movie, and Casey stands out in the screen, we could have had another in his role, but I'm glad we didn't.
To cut out the chase here, I think this movie tells the story of death through life and vice-versa, both at the same time. It shows how many weight a killer carries in his back and how many you have to carry to become one. Their decisions shape their future so perfectly, as the fall of one predicts the rise of another. The question is: Is he prepared to take his place in the world?
So the movie answer this question and gives us a bitter taste of what you have to do to get anywhere in life. You have to take a step, you need to be patient, you have to be in the right place at the right time, you need luck and them life might give you a shot. Once you get there, sometimes it might pop out another question: Is that what you are really looking for? All of this is given to you just with glances, stares and imagery. I'm happy to say, I like the way they carried out this.
I'll give it a 9/10, why? I really don't know because I was really into the characters, they can give you so much with bare silence. Maybe I was missing some CGI-action shooting? Who knows? A must see...
10/10, this movie is PURE GOLD!
I'm not a Kubrick fan, I didn't even watch all his movies, but I must say that he nailed it in this one.
The way he draw his arguments through his characters is just AMAZING. I mean you learn to identify the stereotypes and the problems that they will bring to the movie universe, but this don't spoil the fun in any way. I mean, you still want to watch what is going to come ahead and happens to be HILARIOUS.
OK, I wasn't LMAO and ROFL throughout the movie, but mentally I was just delighted which such finesse. I'm not going to spoil your fun, I don't even mean to get you disappointed with the movie just to drop you the "You just don't get it" line. But try to watch the movie and to put yourself in that time, it's like playing Russian roulete with a nuclear bomb revolver. The destiny of the entire world changes between hands constantly, by the way, in the hands of the most funny human people we can find and it relies on the most "out of this world" conversations you could imagine. You'll go crazy when the doomsday is about to happen because a military cannot find change to make a telephone call. This movie portrays the military powers in its comic facet. It's is just insanity to put such powers in the hands of anyone in the world, still we have many nations who could just destroy the planet if they want to. It means that the doomsday has the same probability to happen as a car crash.
When Petter Sellers is explaining his plans to keep the human species alive in case of a doomsday, you just can't help yourself but to put a smile in your face. The way he says "MY FUHRER!" with his uncontrollable nazi hand is just PURE GOLD and he keeps going with it.
I'll give it a 10/10 cause I was reluctant to watch it due to its age, still when I saw the credits I just realised what piece of jewellery I had right before my eyes.
