I can't believe all the negative revies, you have to buy in to the visual narrative style of Noah Hawley, but its stunning, and tells a great stoy of how small the wold would feel once you have witnessed the Earth from space. I had been looking forward to this movie for months, and when I went along I was the only person in the cinema! I loved it though
Lucy is in the sky with some very rough diamonds. There are some good moments in the film, but as Lucy begins to unravel, so too does the narrative of the film.
I like Noah Hawley's visual style on his TV shows and this definitely has some of those flairs but the plot and pacing are terrible. Plus Natalie Portman's accent is bad.
I saw someone online say this is better than 'Interstellar', and that statement alone nearly made me hurl.
Like, in what way is this boring drivel better?
I watched this on a plane last year, before the COVID outbreak where you could go anywhere, good times. Anywhere, even on a flight journey this couldn't hold my interest.
I liked the TV show 'Legion', a show created by Noah Hawley, but man his directing here is so terrible. Every choice he made was the worst. The number of times the aspect ratio keeps changing I thought I was watching 'Transformers: The Last Knight' again.
Natalie Portman, Jon Hamm, Zazie Beetz, and Dan Stevens all together in a film by Noah Hawley... how could you go wrong? You could start with Portman's not-so-great accent attempt. Or you could dig into the climax, or lack thereof really. The stylistic choices made in the filming style, some of the deep questions pondered, and the generally engaging first 2/3 crash back to earth when you reach the credits and feel...a lot of ambivalence towards the last 2+ hours. It feels like there's a huge amount of potential here, but it just didn't quite come together.
