Bad Apple Movie Theead


Recommended Posts

He keeps repeating his philosophy, I think he was shaken by missing the target. So it brought on an existential crisis. But he's still sticking to the plan as much as possible. But making mistakes. Like wanting to talk to the expert. 
 

He proves he's one of the few. But then says he's one of the many. 
 

Maybe you don't kill one of the few. Or the Billionaire is one of the harmless many. The few are the killers, the handler, the assistant - they are fair game. But the doofus isn't a threat. 
 

It's a bit like NBK, if Mickey n Mallory don't repent the movie is worthless. So maybe The Killer has to change a little.

It's like Trainspotting. Choose Big Tech Life. 
 

Maybe it has to in these times, it's on Netflix. He at least needs an out. It's not just killing is cool. 
 

It's almost a school shooting waiting to happen. But if he ultimately chooses the many, Fincher is safe from blame.

The opening is one of Fincher's best sequences. Rear Window thing going on with little Parisian vignettes of people going about their lives. Killer then goes out to eat his Macdonalds. Nothing happens (until something happens)

You can't hide in the digital age but you can blend in with chain restaurants or coffee shops. Everyone eats a ham and egg McMuffin. Goes to Starbucks. Uses Amazon. 
 

It went from Hitchcock to the French Connection. His mansion in the jungle was like Miami Vice. The gym section is American Psycho meets Fight Club. 
 

The Killer is Tyler Durden having a mental breakdown. 
 

It is a killer developing a conscience. Or the Mantra versus the conscience. 
 

In the end he sides with the many. 
 

I think based on Morrissey track he believes in fate. That's the placebo for the many.

 

Maybe when he runs out of cash he'll get back on the killer philosophy.

I'm not that keen on Nolan's films.

I never understand or enjoy them on first watch. But the production values are very high. He should be doing Coopola style scripts, he's doing mind bending stuff on 80 million dollar budgets. Competing with Superhero movies on production.

I believe it is the attire of a middle aged German tourist. Should have went for a middle aged English tourist and worn this sort of set-up,

Needs socks and bucket hat. 
 

It is Utilitarian? Everything is practical but no real style. 
 

literally everyone wears black now. Especially in airports. So he's blending in. 
 

But the Brits go more hooligan casual, with shorts, football shirt and bucket hat. Adidas gazelles or sambas.  passport in hand. No bag. 
 

In Dubai you see the Muslim casual, just the dress and sandals. No bag. Total billionaire look.

Young working class Brit: football shirt, tattoos, bucket hat and union jack underpants. Seen drinking pints in airport lounges at six in the morning.

 

Middle class middle aging Brit (doing some battlefield tourism maybe?): Beigey-cream suit attire with fedora and chinos - those shorts I posted are worn in hot weather. Usually seen sweating near the Trevi Fountain struggling with an oversized map.

 

The German dress sense Fassbender adopts is true. Germans dress a bit like the Brit above (beigy) but more 'outdoorsy' and less suity than a self-respecting Englishman.

I saw people with hankies on their heads in Swanage two years ago. Funny thing was they were cranking Black Skinhead by Kanye from their car. Unironically
 

Boomers in airports do the post colonial linen suit, sun hat, war criminal look like it's the 90s and no one knows we are nazis. Wearing shorts abroad just signals tourist. If you have a map they will try to steal your phone. 
 

Germans like a uniform. They dress like traffic police. Until they get to the pool and it's 70s porno. Speedos and Becks.

Social Network is OK.

 

Girl With Dragon Tattoo is a slog, as is Mank.

 

The Killer was a lot of fun.  The voiceover is definitely reminiscent of Dexter and American Psycho, but it's its own thing.

 

I went back to look at the comic book it's based on...it's surprisingly shitty.  Terrible art.

Does the Comic have the MIC or McDonald's dialogue?

No it doesn't. It's very different from the movie.

 

Light comic spoilers



In the comic, Hodges is his professor but he's only in like 1 page of the entire comic. The guy who fucks him over is his French lawyer in France.

His girlfriend doesn't get attacked in the comic either. No Swinton or Brute characters either.

So jhe misses his shot, then goes round cleaning up. 
 

So it's Walker with all the ideas in the screenplay. The dialogue in Fight Club is mostly Palahniuk. Fincher seems to like dark mental struggles. I wonder what Angel Heart would be like if he directed it.
