i seriously cant get over how amazing this movie would be if it didn't have a score. it adds such a blatant, sloppy level of artifice to a film that is otherwise doing everything in it's power to take that away. not just in technique but the story is also refreshingly reserved and matter of fact. i was legiterally sitting in the theater thinking if the demolished town scene didnt have music i probably would have cried during it. if the content is good enough it can be enough nahmean
also get rid of the subtitles. the whole emotional heft of that scene came from him connecting with that girl despite not speaking the same language... again the film is killing itself to be subjective but then translates a language that the main character wouldn't understand like are u on crack samuel
Same. i thought the score was pretty great in the first half of film, but the exact scene you mentioned was such overkill i just wanted that score gone completely. this film would have benefited a lot from more silence
also just my experience, but funnily enough, not all of french dialogue was subtitled iirc - only the bits schofield seemed to understand and directly respond to. the rest wasn’t
As always, enjoy listening / let me know if you think I said something unspeakably wrong.
This was nice! Though missing bullets in 1917 is not that problematic. But as usual you make great points about Dunkirk. And more than the Dunkirk comparisons, I really dislike it when 1917 is mentioned with Gallipoli in the same breath. Peter Weir film is on a different emotional plane altogether and of course a far superior film.
