tocmai am vazut SMOKIN' ACES de Joe Carnahan, unul in regizorii in care am mai multa incredere decit Eli Roth sau Tarantino himself...bine ca n-a facut M:I 3...desi a facut best bit din M:I 3 in Smokin'.....
orice film care are un teaser trailer pe Motorhead-The Ace of Spades can't be but a classic :-), wow, ce fac acum, imi scriu urmatorul articol pt SS (Sapte Seri ?), yes, to be contd there...
anyway, rusine criticilor, mai ales englezii vad ca-s ofensati, poate asta e si ideea, de la Domino n-am mai fots asa exhilerated...excited, sick twisted fun, asha si amuzat de la Crank, care era guilty bad terrible inhaling junkie nephew of Domino, Carnahan e the better cousin of Guy Ritchie si chiar more adult...si fara kabala e revigorating
dead reckoning a lui Clint Mansell care-si reia tema din Requiem for a dream (Kronos q: Lux Aetherna), pe chitara, in shooting climax
soundtrack pounding, prodigy, john cale, iggy...lemmy....maan
& Morricone cu the good the bad in scena cu soldatul muribund mi s-a parut un omagiu ireverentios excelent...
cele 15 minute de expozitiune pe speed, ca si cocaina taiata de o carte de joc, apoi slowdown, relantiiiii...bullet time...
it fuckin rocks ! really si oricine zice altceva n-am ce-i face...
cum zice un user...
"By far the most degenerate, twisted, psychotic action movie in a long time.....I absolutely loved it."
vad ca a fost primit cu mixed feelings, problema lor, Joe incearca sa le explice in pagina lui de myspace
REACTIONS TO 'SMOKIN' 02/22/2007 at 09:41 PM
I feel like we've been through this course a number of times, but let me
just overstate the obvious once more. The following isn't meant to function
as anything more than clarification:
1. The movie was designed to polarize. You don't place broad, dark comedy
against heavy drama unless you want to illicit a certain kind of response and
that response can very well be 'What the fu*k were you thinking!?' For me
it was a very deliberate artistic attempt...and one that will work for
some and fail for others. There's an old saying: 'No Hill For a Climber' if
you sit back and wonder what people will think if you take a shot at
something, then you're beat before the opening bell. What's the fu*king point,
if you don't try to extend yourself and your craft. I've been fortunate enough to
get into a position where this is possible.
2. This flick was never going to be NARC. nor was it intended to be. Again,
what's the point of filmmaking if not to stretch and try to define yourself
and your craft, differently, each time out. That's what I want to do. The guys
I admire, like Ang Lee and Steven Soderbergh, mix it up every time they go
out. Sometimes they hit it out of the park, other times they foul it into the
stands. It's their willingness to attempt different things and different genres
that makes them great.
3. 'Smokin' Aces' is exactly the movie I wanted to make. A clash of tones and
styles and variations. A mixing of all kinds of influences and filmic archetypes
to create something new or at the very least, seldom seen. The end of the
movie isn't meant to be a twist and was never intended as such. It's not
important who the hell the old man is, it's what the FBI did to their OWN
PEOPLE that matters in the end. I could give a sh*t about a twist
ending. If you don't have a clue as to who Sparazza is, before the finale, then
I blew it, because my intention was to let you in on it, early on.
That's all I wanted to say. I hope those of you that have dug the film have
really dug it and those of you that have hated it, have done so with all of your
heart. In the end, you can't ask for any more than that.
godbless, fuckin a, can't wait for white jizz ,pardon jazz !
