Captures well the dilemma between personal ambition versus social conscience. Witty and moving, but direction flat.
A BIGGER SPLASH ★★★★☆
As remakes go, different enough to justify existence. Swinton-Fiennes-Schoenaerts wow. Sexy. Funny.
Uneven anarchy. If Ben Wheatley was going for equivalent of SNOWPIERCER or A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, this falls far short.
Every time I heard "the architect" I thought of THE MATRIX RELOADED. Another good-looking convoluted philosophical mess.
LAND OF MINE ★★★★★
The war film equivalent of THE WAGES OF FEAR/SORCERER. Gut wrenching tension and moral ambiguity.
