    INCREDIBLE method having the soundtrack written prior to shooting to use as influence on set. Very powerful.

                I watched this with my friend and she really said the movie was “aight” and she liked suicide squad better. I just left her right there.

                  Can anyone please elaborate on the process of using an animation stand for Title Sequences? 
                  More so in the context of it being shot on film as I've seen how digital title sequences are made (ie through Adobe) but interested in finding out how you can shoot them on film!:)

                        This movie is mainly driven by Joaquin's outstanding performance. And it has been the best movie made in many years!

                                                  Why does the Latin boy (he is the one that smashes him in the face with the sign) HAVE to be the one influencing the other kids to be bad? STEREOTYPE!

                                                    If the dvd doesn't have director's commentary then i will be very disappointed...

Just a copy of Taxi Driver for Millennials (who probably never watched the original). It's not a tribute to Scorsese's film it was a robbery! The worst was that each scene was designed to generate an iconic visual effect, killing every natural aspect that exists between the actor and the camera ...

Feels like the message in the movie is, the world is not black or white, its in full blown technicolor.
