When he’s not escorting Queen Elizabeth II to the Olympics, James Bond is content with simply saving the world.

The biggest thing to takeaway from that look was Roger Deakins‘ glorious cinematography and it continues here, but now we’ve got a much larger hint at the story.

What dictated these labels […]

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
