The three perspectives so clearly established in the film by the three writers only speaks to further the audience understanding. Whether it is the symbolism of a horse misused and locked away, or the declaration of a man’s insistence that sexual violence against a woman he ‘loves’ is a scorn against him, The Last Duel embraces its horror undertones. It uses genre to liven its experience and reveal that not all is as it seems.
I didn’t know how the big race turned out in ‘66 and I won’t spoil it here; suffice to say it’s bittersweet, but when you’re making a movie based on a true story, some things are set in stone.
The movie is about a man realising he would have a better life if he were to shrink himself to five inches tall, allowing him to live in wealth and splendour. Sounds nuts right? But the introduction and the explanation to this scientific breakthrough was actually explained well and executed just fine to set up what I felt was going to be an entertaining two hours.
Suburbicon is about a home invasion that rattles a quiet family town. The synopsis is rather simple and the opening shots of the film start of quite brightly.
