    Terry Gilliam made a movie about Manhattan ON LOCATION.

    Think about that. What could Terry Gilliam do in NYC? Everything, everything.

    What camera is this? No one has ever filmed a city this way. I’ve never seen buildings with such depth, dimension, softness. The buildings are so fat and tall, like rocks, like mountains.

    I thought this was going to be Reign Over Me, The Rain Man. I thought it was just two guys walking around talking. It’s more like Baz Luhrmann meets Ridley Scott. I mean, it’s Gilliam.

    Jeff Bridges is Robins Knight.

    David Harbour made an American Garth Marenghi's Darkplace called Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein and like, if you’re going to copy something do it right, and it’s fabulous.

    Why 32 minutes? Make it a show, go full Marenghi.

    ★★★

    3 hours and I barely understood what was happening.

    You know I love Dog Day Afternoon, I love Network, but this was 40(?) scenes of Treat Williams walking over to men eating, touching them, getting touched by them, talking about stuff that can happen, and then maybe someone gets angry and a short rumble happens. That’s it.

    It’s a beautiful film, the city is alive, I did, in the end, pick up the storyline. Which was “dirty cop becomes good…

    As of it's release, I think this is what every alien film was supposed to be. What other films brush off in seconds this film builds into an ultimate message. Some films are designed to give us hope, I left the theater in thankful tears.

    ★★★★½

    I had a lot to say in a review while watching this, but honestly, I think I just want to say that my faith in modern film making is rekindled, and I'm thankful and happy, and really proud of this production. I have love for this film
