Motherless Brooklyn Review (2019) Edward Norton Neo-Noir
In this video, we take a spoiler-free look at the neo-noir/crime film "Motherless Brooklyn," written for the screen and directed by Edward Norton! Co-starring Bruce Willis, Willem Defoe, Alec Baldwin, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Bobby Cannavale, this is the first large-scale period crime film of this scope to come along in years. Filled with beautiful cinematography, outstanding performances, and wall-to-wall jazz, it's no wonder that this impressive tour of the darker side of 1950s Brooklyn is reminding audiences of L.A. Confidential.

Finally caught up with this now that it's on Sky in the UK. Loved it! Definitely for fans of classic film, film noir and more deliberately-paced, twisting narratives. The plot reminded me of a Raymond Chandler book - specifically The Big Sleep - in that there's a lot of stuff going on, a lot of characters, a lot of quite subtle reveals (like the matches you mentioned) that you need to wrap your head around to be able to fully understand the plot. Score, cinematography, sets and costume design, acting all first class. More please Hollywood.ReplyDelete
