    ★★★★

    I get why this is considered one of the best movies of all time: beautifully composed shots, quietly and sparsely gliding camera work, amazing ensemble acting...yes, yes it’s all here. in this age of movies absolutely skewering class warfare (Parasite, Hustlers, The Laundromat) it’s interesting to see a story of people brought together despite class. There are some interesting nationalistic moments as well, and in Grand Illusion I see shades of Orson Welles’ films and Grand Budapest Hotel. I’m sure it’s influenced countless others, but my basic film brain can only know so much. 

    also Jean Gabin can get it.

    Jesus, Mendes. I kinda wrote you off after that Bond jawn but wow. What a solidly good movie, in the most classic way possible. You have a strong, intent dramatic script. Impeccable acting.

    ★★★½

    i watched this film in a fancy movie theater in a random casino farrrrrrr off the strip in Las Vegas at the tail end of a disastrous, stressful work trip in which we stayed at quite possibly the seediest hotel i've ever showered/slept in. needless to say Avengers: Endgame was everything i wanted and needed it to be in the hellmouth that was my life at that time. also never stay at Circus Circus in LV. ok bye
