Ash’s review published on Letterboxd:
“I’m not broken... and I’m not alone.”
Justice is Grey. This is what filmmaking is all about - every scene, every line, every intention is a beautifully impassioned direction from Snyder’s direct vision, and singlehandedly an illuminated flare of his passion, for his film, his story, these characters. The emotion that is packed through these four hours - every single minute meaning to be in there, necessary to how the story is told in its scale and intimacy - is what we need more of in blockbusters; films that can balance their scales with their stories, as well as bringing a personal sense of intimacy to it, to bring a real understanding of the characters at play. That’s what I loved about Justice League, it reminded me of so many of the films I grew up with that were pure visions of their director’s and densely occupied with nuanced emotion. Justice for everyone who worked on this amazing film and got dealt with the complete garbage of what was first and originally released instead. Restore the Snyder-Verse to its full glory.
