    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★½

    A really fun yarn directed by a really bad director. The appreciation of such an exercise heavily relies on the spectator’s susceptibility to accept the cheesy dramatic ineptitude and poor mise en scène and just get concentrated on the film’s superficial pleasures: really fast airplanes and easy moralistic jingoism.

    A man of action in a world of words. Such an angry film but also so tender and sad. The dryness is very rigorous and masterfully handled, Bresson as an obvious angular stone. Great central character and very interesting management of his feelings and indignations (the depiction of his relation to his sister, which I found deeply touching, is essential for the narrative to properly work just as how he relates to the young marxist revolutionaries and the homossexual businessman who feels attracted to him).
