A powerful, well shot and lit piece that effectively and beautifully recounts the true story of the last hours of someone’s life. By the time it was over, I really liked it.
A short yet stunning look in to how people deal with mental health, especially in the British 1960s when the topic was a misunderstood taboo. It looks gorgeous, is edited very well, and uses music effectively alongside a solid sense of humour, great acting, and an immersive story despite little happening. I cannot wait for Charlotte Wells’ next project. A new favourite director of mine.
Sometimes it’s a little too dumb, and some of the script had some pretty weak moments, but Snyder’s own great cinematography, a cool ensemble cast, fantastic action, an awesome score and a one or two decent scares and thrills paired with a new take on the zombie genre make Army of the Dead an absolute blast, though those two and a half hours felt like they dragged, and it’s fucking incredible that this was done on a 90,000,000 dollar budget.
