The Old Man and The Gun. David Lowery. 2018. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Reminded me of Punch Drunk Love and Badlands but lacked the weird fucked up-ness that PTA and Malick employ to counterbalance the romantic thrusts of their respective minor masterworks. Stylistic wankery + Affleck arc trades heavily on trope & cliché, rather than developing felt motivation. Spacek and Redford's performances radiate such grace and pain, it's unfortunate movie would rather focus on CARPE DIEM bullshit.
