"The film is about the insignificance of history in what was once strictly considered to be a period-based genre, a conceptually fascinating ideological foundation to be sure, but also one that's practically worthless."Talk about yer ever-lovin' cacophony! As a practical matter, I assure you GBW is worth exactly the price of admission... in any currency. Conceptually, I don't know enough about ideological foundations to be fascinated by them, let alone "be sure" about it. Go back to lepidoptery school, Mr. Abrahms, where people will appreciate you pinning beautiful things down with latin.
that movie my uncle likes so well in there too.
among the greatest to ever point the camera at sombrero (or anything else). Wit happens when economy meets novelty; it's the new best way to say something. Strange to speak of economy in a movie so packed to the hilt as The Good/Bad/Weird, but Jae-woo doesn't mince shots or waste them either; everything is purposeful and delivered with charm... which is what makes this film wonderful instead of tedious. Wit without charm is a facial tic.
