Haven't seen THE INTERNATIONAL, but that shoot-out scene is tremendous! Is the rest of the flick worth seeing too?

Heh! So I guess I've seen the best part already, thanks.

Damn, OK. The Guggenheim hype was warranted. I wonder if the DVD has a "making of" for that scene. I'd love to see how they pulled it off. That cell phone ring tone moment was a clever comic touch.

Hurrah for Fassbender, an uncommonly talented bloke, and the wickedly funny JULIA scribes.

I'm part of a small but vocal minority that thinks THE INTERNATIONAL is pretty darn good even in the moments where bullets are not fucking shit up at the Guggenheim. I probably should have given Tykwer more directing points than I did because he really does a hell of a job with a pretty awful screenplay.

Bilge said...

Yeah, THE INTERNATIONAL is a great example of exceptional directing rising above shitty screenwriting, and I think it's a pretty entertaining flick.

I did, however, forget to give points to the Guggenheim sequence. [Hangs head in shame]
