Quote from: the on March 07, 2020, 11:22:12 PMHang on, did people not find TDSC to be a funny film? You'd have to be pretty rigidly sour not to locate the funnies in it.
Quote from: the on March 07, 2020, 11:58:16 PMBut films aren't like his TV programmes. They place completely different demands on pacing, plotting, characterisation, production and dialogue. Going to to a cinema and expecting a 90 minute episode of Brass Eye is a fool's errand.Despite that, Four Lions is a funny film as well. It's not an unfunny film is it.

Quote from: Shoulders?-Stomach! on March 08, 2020, 08:13:44 AMIt was a fine line to tread having the central character be genuinely ill and also make fun of him, but it seemed to manipulate that too forcedly which is why I guess the end felt quite slight, or at least underwhelming
Quote from: Mister Six on March 08, 2020, 03:26:50 AMFour Lions was hilarious. TDSC suffered because it was too funny/wacky, I think. Needed fewer yuks and more drama in the first hour or so to give enough weight to the ending.

Quote from: sambwel on May 11, 2020, 05:43:20 AMi'm sure it's already been mentioned somewhere earlier in the thread, so apologies for not checking, but i note that in at least one promotional interview for this film, morris says he is considering a project to do with the iranian revolution and all the shady business behind and around it. a topic that interests me but if i'm honest i'd be more keen for him to put film to one side for now and go back to playing with radio again and have some fun, or heck, even write a book.
Quote from: EBGB on May 11, 2020, 07:04:57 AMIn what sense? I've never been to Miami, so I'm genuinely curious.
Quote from: chveik on May 11, 2020, 03:20:13 PMI think Morris is confusing journalist work and film director work.
Quote from: EBGB on May 12, 2020, 11:01:44 AMI knew it had been filmed in the DR and Florida too, but I worked on the assumption that not having been to Florida (have been to DR), I couldn't judge how different they are for relevant scenes. I follow Eddie Irvine on social media, and photos he posts of Miami look nothing like the images of the city I see in the media, but also little like TDSC other than the skyline at the beginning of the film.
