I love movies. I love writing about them. Hope you like reading what I write.
After this movie’s dizzyingly good opening title sequence, we are shown a gorgeous shot of London. Then the first words are spoken by two of the main characters. Then we take a second to change our perceptions.
The way these characters speak, act and work off one another is hammy and theatrical. How could anyone like this? Because it is a tribute to the great thrillers of the 40’s through 60’s.
This small, independent, British film captures with its minimalist approach, all that film-lovers have been missing, while delivering something wholly new.
Please check it out, this film deserves your support.
Here’s my review: “Candlestick”
