1917


------------------------------
"To fake the death of one sibling may be regarded as a misfortune; to fake the death of both looks like carelessness." Oscar Wilde about Mycroft Holmes

"It is what it is says love." (Erich Fried)

“Enjoy the journey of life and not just the endgame. I’m also a great believer in treating others as you would like to be treated.” (Benedict Cumberbatch)

Re: 1917

Haven't seen anything with Colin Firth in a while, and never with Benedict. Looks like it could be interesting.

Re: 1917

You mean them together?
Last outing was Tinker, Tailor?

Re: 1917

Yeah, them in the same movie. I forgot they were both in that, since I haven't seen it.

Re: 1917

Oh and apparently Andrew is in 1917, too...or so they are saying on facebook.

Re: 1917

New trailer for the movie showing Benedict and Andrew a little. Looks intense.

Re: 1917

Yes, absolutely. The First World War was terrible for everyone involved. While they can't sugercoat it, of course, from the trailer it looks very exciting but not too gory, while still showing the violence. Hopefully the trailer is accurate and it won't be gratuitous. I don't get that impression from the trailer, though.

Re: 1917

I've just managed to see this and can highly recommend seeing it on a big screen.  Benedict and Andrew have very little screen time, but it's an astonishing film.  One thing that doesn't come across at all in the trailer is that it has famously been filmed to look like a single shot in real time (I think it's not actually a single shot, but the shots are very long indeed).  I was worried this might feel gimmicky but it really did work well.  It must have been incredibly difficult to do!  The trailer jumps about, obviously, so feels very different.  I thought the sound was fantastic too, loved the music, the contrast of quiet and noise, the clear speech (I could hear everything the actors were saying!).  The story was very simple and moving.  Highly recommended!

Re: 1917

As usual I have opted for a DVD pre-order!

Re: 1917

I wonder if the DVD will come with a "making of" feature.  That would be really interesting to see.  Oh, I just had a google and there are some pieces on youtube so will watch them now that I've seen the film!  I did listen to something with Sam Mendes saying about how they could film a perfect 8 minute sequence then the camera person trips up and they have to do it all again from the beginning!

Re: 1917

And apparently Andrew kept making errors!

Re: 1917

Oh no!  I hope they were able to laugh about it!  It must have been so tense for all the actors, camera crew, etc.

That´s sounds exciting but I´m afraid the movie will be too gory for me. How would you rate it considering "goryness"? Could a squeamish person take it or not?

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

Re: 1917

It's war, so I can accept that...
incidentally, thanks for reminding me to come back here.
I meant to say...
for BRITS, or those can access UK TV.
There is a Sam Mendes documentary on tonight:
BBC4 at 9PM.
