For an aspiring Cinematographer, stylistically and visually this film makes me want to run around Larry Smith in circles worshiping him, then climb into his head and look out of his eyes and see how the magic happens (in a film way, not a sex way, ya filthy animals) Also, Tom Hardy is so good (and ya can see his willy at the end...whose the filthy animal now.)
Mon premier Winding Refn et c'était archi cool. Le rôle est endossé par Tom Hardy avec brio. Le personnage est à la fois bien campé et toujours un peu indécis avec notamment les multiples strates de narration qui semble souligner la folie du personnage. L'emprisonnement accroît la folie du personnage dans son désir de gloire et de reconnaissance : il trouve en la prison un meilleur asile.
The violence is orchestrated with grandeur, a Kubrickian soundtrack, and a loony central performance. With that, "Bronson" carries along too much "Clockwork Orange" and not enough humanity or depiction of genuine suffering to create a portrait that is as sympathetic as the cast and crew want it to be. The style draws you in but there isn't enough substance to make a strong impression.
0. What a horrendous filmmaker. Always bombastic and emphatic, demonstrative and explanatory, showing "talent" and "style" that actually redound in its self-redundancy. It seems to be much appreciated what is even in accordance with the noise for anything, absolutely anything and whatever, we live.
Get a washing machine, fill it with broken glass, acid, dynamite, strobe lights, million watt sub-woofer and a mountain of cocaine; close the lid and put it on tumble dry. Then after 2 mins, open the lid and your head in the machine. This is what the film is like, the even more autistic & anarchic heir to the throne of Kubrick, which is Nicholas Winding Refn, all hail the king & his prince Tom Hardy.. Who's Brian?
How odd it feels to watch this, knowing that it's from the same creative mind behind "Drive" and "Only God Forgives"? I mean, the iconic scenes and the high contrasted cinematography are there, but altough Bronson is a killer, the film is always in a very light and joyful tone. Tom Hardy is just incredible, his best role so far.
Se io ora vi dicessi che il protagonista è "Charles Bronson, il carcerato più violento di Inghilterra", molto probabilmente potreste già immaginarvi, con una buona dose di accuratezza, 3/4 di ciò che succede durante tutto il film, ciononostante vi consiglierei comunque di vederlo. La cura fotografica è davvero buona e la sceneggiatura tutto sommato non ha intoppi o pecche eccessive. Hardy è spettacolare.
