This film, the latest Sean Penn movie is really good. A bit slow to start with, but worth the wait. Benicio Del Toro does a good job as usual. Talk about making it hard for yourself by doing the character “Fenster” in “Usual Suspects” so well. So now everything he does has to be compared to that.
Sean Penn is in my eye, the followup to actors like .DeNiro and Pacino. More of DeNiro than Pacino. He usually becomes the character, it’s not Sean Penn playing someone. Not many actors do this anymore. The only other one I can come up with is Edward Norton. Let’s hope Norton doesn’t get stuck in the action movie thing for to long.
The movie feels European in its pace. Slower tempo. Looks like a trend, with the movie “Elephant” made in the same vein.
I’ll give it thumbs up.
