    Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula
     
    My annual rewatch.  Is Keanu hopelessly miscast?  Obviously yes and the other performances are all over the place.  But every other aspect of the filmmaking is so jaw-dropping that I still say it’s one of Coppola’s finest movies.  There are images here that stay with you forever.  I almost wish I could watch a “silent mix” where dialogue is dialed out but music and SFX remain. I think it would only enhance the movie’s dreamlike surreal tone and of course deepen its connection to its early 20th century influences.

    My local Odeon doesn't have screenings of it after Thursday 28th (i assume this is across the board). 

    So ... a movie delayed for 18 months and regarded as one of the year's most highly anticipated releases is ending its UK cinema run after 4 weeks. Hmmm.

    Some say The Last Duel features the best sword fights ever, not in a Marvel way, but in a realistic way. I want to compare it to The Duellists which is known for the exact same reason. Other than that, while The Duellists is a truly amazing looking film (from a time when Ridley Scott was still under the spell of Stanley Kubrick), I have yet to see a beautiful frame from The Last Duel.

    I think there is a a scene of the mother, the child and david in a boat reading the story, could be a montage of scenes reading the book

    I still say shiny. Fewer people know what it means now than they did back then (which wasn't a lot). Then I got a coworker named Shiny and that made things difficult.
