    I won’t lie, I had a very biased attitude towards this project before watching it - firstly, in all the photos I didn’t like Alana Haim, and secondly, the idea of ​​casting Hoffman’s son seemed idiotic. Well, I only believed that Paul Thomas Anderson understood what he was doing.

    In the end, this is love from the second scene. Well, maybe when I watch it on UHD, it will be love from the first scene. But let's proceed to the…

    Wow! I’ve had such big expectations about this movie, that realistically it was hard to match them, Spielberg even exceeded them!

    It’s ideal in every way (even in the way I’ve screened - absolutely alone in a movie theatre on the very first day). I’ve loved every minute of it. Top notch directing (obviously!). Great acting (even though I’ve loved trio of supporting actors more than two of the main). Perfect screenplay. Time-machine or cinematography. Impeccable casting.

    HOLY FUCKIN SHIT THIS IS AWESOME.

    After spending an evening with emotions, i can tell that this one of the greatest movies Brits ever produced, this is the second movie with James McAvoy that i've seen this week (first was Welcome To The Punch) and this is even better.

    First of all thanks to genuinely polished script. Even if you think you understand it - you're not. Great performance by Vincent Cassel. Nice soundtrack by Underworld alumni.

    In the end…

    Дисклеймер nomer raz: мой любимый тип фильмов - это когда либо невозможная любовь, либо coming-of-age (еще фильмы про евреев, но это здесь не причем).

    Disclaimer намбер ту: не являюсь фанатом Зоопарка, Кино, да и всего русского рока (включающего в себя ленинградский рок-клуб). Считаю это все вторичным по отношению к фирменным оригиналам (хотя даже не смотря на это - возводить людей в статус неприкасаемых богов это нонсенс).

    Начитавшись дико похвальных отзывов от российских критиков с Канн (в противовес более уравновешенным иностранным)…
