Marrying ballet and horror, the beautiful and the ugly, Aronofsky has made a movie that is at once strange, alluring, feverish and haunting.
Tron Legacy falls just short of being one of the all-time great Hollywood epics, but it’s certainly a groundbreaking visual masterpiece with more heart and soul than the original film.
The Warrior’s Way suggests what you’d get if you mashed-up the ouevres of Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Zack Snyder, Sergio Leone, and Ronny Yu. Samurais battle cowboys in a surreal dreamlike old West while bearded ladies and circus clowns prance around the edges, and if that sounds at all intriguing — it isn’t.
The kids play is no more. We are in the realm of a genuinely terrific, cinematic, complex drama. Deathly Hallows isn’t just the best Harry Potter yet — its one of the best films I’ve seen all year.
