Trivia

Johnny Depp was told by Martin Amis that for research he should spend time with professional darts player Bobby George. He wouldn't need to spend time with any other player - Bobby is the epitome of British darts. Bobby told him that every day was like Christmas Day to him - a reference to how great his life was and the happiness that his success as a darts player had brought. Johnny asked if he could use that line in the film : "am I going to win? Of course I'm going to win. It's Christmas every day for me, innit" See more »

Quotes

Alternate Versions

The director's cut utilizes stock-footage as a narrative and stylistic device, whereas the producer's cut doesn't include any stock-footage moments. By using stock-footage, especially during the opening, world-building sequences, the director's cut takes on a way more epic quality, and the overall vibe that can be felt is more anxious and alive than what can be felt in the producer's cut. In general, the producer's cut favors the use of voice-over more than Cullen's director's cut, which while still utilizing voice-over, offers more of an ambiguous viewing experience. As an overall viewing experience, the producer's cut is a more traditional film, even with a narrative that folds over on itself. The plotting is more straight-forward, there is more voice-over in order to guide the audience along, the musical selections are more classic, and the ways in which characters are introduced are more level. In comparison, the director's cut is a far more eclectic viewing experience, as it relies more on ambiguity and favors are more artistic sense of creation by the filmmaker. There's also a noticeable difference in the saturation of color between the two versions. The producer's cut feels more washed out and drained of color, while the director's cut offers a richer primary color palette scheme, and even features bolder black and shadows during nighttime sequences.

On the weak side
1 November 2018 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

Oh wow! I just saw this in theaters and your telling me it's been out since 2015? I guess that's the biz of showbiz, this movie is bizarre enough for me to believe that they could not find anyone who wanted to distribute it.

This also explains why Amber Heard and Johnny Depp are in the same movie. In 2015 I think the two were still together. They did not share any scenes in the movie (Maybe they had to reedited so that was the case explaining the long delay of release).

London Fields love itself far too much that it's not listening to anyone telling it how dull this is. I will say this, I did not see the ending coming of this mystery because of the oddness of the film, which I can totally respect.

Billy Bob Thornton plays a washed up writer from Hell's kitchen who switches homes with a hot shot writer from London in hopes he can write his next book and he gets and idea when he discovers his next store neighbor, Amber Herd has predicted that someone will kill her and has agreed to let the writer observe to see how it will lay out.

The film looks beautiful and gets you in the mood of the Murder Mystery. I found it interesting that I could not tell what time period the movie falls under. I think it's a near future, that has better cell phones then we do now, but I'm not sure. Amber Heard does help in the beauty of this film as it's definitely her purpose in the film to play that classic Femme Fatale.

I like Billy Bob Thornton and he was interesting enough, although his narration of the film did not get me into the story. This is true of most of the male cast members including Depp who quirky behavior was just corny. I say don't see it.
