Bridge of Spies, starring Tom Hanks as himself. Despite the enormous runtime, this really flew by. Spielberg really has a knack for sucking you in and making you forget that you’ve been sitting there for two hours. They really ply the “USA — nice! USSR — mean!” on thick. That gets old. Although I guess at many points they don’t neglect to show the “ugly American” trope that’s so prevalent everywhere but here.
An updated Spy Who Came In From The Cold, Spielberg makes his most enjoyable film since The Terminal or Minority Report (caution: I missed Lincoln). The openings a great set piece, beautifully done. Tom Hanks is at the top of his game lately between this and Sully & the interplay between he and Rylance is just beautiful. One of the best films of 2015 from mainstream director. 4 stars, just know Ritt did it better.
Pleasing visuals - that evoke old-fashioned 50s era with both crisp and foggy tapestry - bring engaging story that successfully disguises moral preaching with characters that feel alive and caring, whether for the pragmatic or humanitarian purposes. Sharp screenplay brings couple of lines worth remembering even if the rest is probably forgettable. And Tom Hanks brings warmth and charm as easily as he always does.
Rien à redire, les fondations cinématographiques de cette œuvre se révèlent en béton armé, de par la solidité de l'interprétation des personnages principaux d'où émerge la subtilité du jeu de Mark Rylance dans le rôle de l'espion russe, mais aussi une puissante scénographique qui insidieusement mais aussi efficacement idéalise et encense l'Amérique Eternelle. www.cinefiches.com
In the glimmering glamour of new Star Wars era, Spielberg re-establishes his school.The movie embodies the task of how a great director can make you cry your eyes out even if you are not american, and make a spy thriller into tear-jerker with subtle twists.With Tom Hanks leading perfectly, "bridge of spies" endorses of the power of dialogue, and how is it to be a brilliant negotiator.This is where your hats goes off.
Narrazione un po' troppo dilatata, ma indubbiamente interessante. Riuscita l'analisi delle due potenze, in cui nessuna delle due spicca per integrità. La narrazione è molto chiara e lineare, ma viene mantenuro un ritmo un po' troppo costante che però non mina troppo la qualità narrativa. Fortunatamente dei personaggi di spessore e una tecnica di qualità sopperiscono ai difetti di sceneggiatura. Buona la vena ironica
