Oh oh! Can I ask what you thought of Domino or do I have to wait for the podcast?
Aww, I can tell you but I do hope you'll still listen to the podcast. I loved it. I plan on posting a ranking once I'm done watching the 3 remaining ones (Man on Fire
, Enemy of the State
and Loving Memory
I am not sure I always knew what was going on .. especially during the scenes set in Las Vegas towards the end where he's cutting so rapidly and the scenes are so impressionistic etc. But I feel like none of that matters. It's all recollection and memory anyway. What I loved most about it I guess is the crazy visual and aural style. Watching it, I kept wondering how audiences seeing it in the theater responded to it. It's quite unlike anything else I've seen.
Edited to add: I can see people hating this. Of all his films, I found this one the most experimental. Whereas normally his films have friendships / human interaction at the center, Domino is pretty much talking to herself here. She has a wall built around herself. And the film's style mirrors that in that it never lets us grasp the narrative entirely. But I loved how hazy and trippy those flashbacks look in the film... mostly blurry with a few key moments sharply in focus for an instant.
