Gostei! Assisti meio despretenciosamente mas achei muito bom! Atuações mara, adoro umas coisas de filme de época... Um humor gostoso, sotaque que amo. Bem nacionalista endeusado mas td bem. No começo precisei dar uma revisada nos meus conhecimentos de história inglesa pq fiquei meio perdidinha, ter visto um pouco de crown ajudou a contextualizar umas coisas kkkk
Oldman's finest hour is the principal asset of this well-directed biopic. The make-up was brilliant as the highly regarded actor is almost unrecognizable. As a minor deficiency, the sec. characters were almost invisible, those didn't get the chance to truly deliver. The main exemple: Ben Mendelsohn; who was also great in his few short apps. Joe Wright & Bruno Delbonnel put a tremendous teamwork. 8.75/10
It may be guilty of overtly romanticizing (up to propaganda level, even); and even though Gary Oldman's acting was more-than-words awesome, sadly the plot still didn't give it enough platform to actually delve into Churchill's complex character. BUT..the great pacing of the story, the tight framing that 'impose' the film to the viewers..I shamelessly love it. *dab napkin to the corner of eyes*
Sur quelques jours du début de la guerre, Joe Wright montre les hésitations de Churchill (avec un étonnant Gary Oldman), filmant les discours et les réunions comme un film d'action. Ca ajoute de la tension dans cette mini-hagiographie scolaire et bureaucratique. Pédagogique.
Barely cinematic (especially in the same year as Dunkirk, and after Wright's own Atonement also memorably took on the topic of Dunkirk), except for a couple of scenes. And its subway-and-Parliament climax may be the least plausible, most absurd and plain worst moment in a 'prestige' movie in recent memory.
3.6 A lot of dark stuffy rooms shown in narrow framing, squeaky floorboards, Churchill's heavy body and his his smoking habit - it all adds to the claustrophobic and suffocating atmosphere of the film. No wonder the Prime Minister meets his people in the underground. That tube scene is straight out of Shakespeare (Henry V, when the King walk amongst his soldiers to test their spirit).
