    What a flick! Picked this up as a blind buy from the Criterion sale at Barnes and Noble. It did not disappoint. I love Bill Duke as an actor. And honestly, I had no idea he was also a director. He directs Deep Cover very well. It’s a neo-noir released during the boom of the hood/black film craze of the early 90’s. And it may be one of my favorites of that boom. It’s a wild, violent, incredibly cynical film. Fishburne and Goldblum have great chemistry!

    While I found myself confused at times due to the twisty narrative of the film, I had a lot of fun watching this one. Soderberg really is an amazing director. The man is so prolific. And this is a pretty lean and mean crime flick. The cast is amazing, and the performances are spectacular. It was nice to see Brendan Fraser tear up the screen as a villain. Welcome back! Can’t wait to see him more often. Del Toro and Cheadle are excellent as always too! And seriously, Julia Fox is so hot.

    Checked this out at my local IMAX theater. It really might be Christopher Nolan's masterpiece, at least from a technical standpoint. And it's also the one film that feels the least Nolan-like. The Hans Zimmer score is intense as hell. And the dogfight scenes with the spitfire planes are absolutely exhilarating and breathtaking. It's a gorgeous looking war film that ranks as one of the best contemporary WW2 films along with Saving Private Ryan and The Thin Red Line.
