There were a couple parts were I wasn't sure about the hand held camera effect but for the most part it was really well done.
I'd recommend Rust And Bone too if you dig foreign movies. Probably the most accessible of the foreign movies I've seen this year. Kinda melodramatic but it's really powerful stuff tbh.
I'd only recommend Looper to someone who's a big sci-fi fan. For all this talk of how original it was, it steals so much stuff from other sci-fi movies. Safety Not Guaranteed is a better sci-fi movie
The effectiveness of name dropping Training Day works for me. As I did like that. I'll give it a shot. If this download for Seeking A Friend For the End of the World doesn't work atm, I'll go directly to End of Watch. If it does, then End of Watch is next. Think the last thing I saw Michael Pena in was 30 Minutes of Less. Gonna get a kick out of seeing him rock a serious role again. Sidenote: he always seems to play a cop of the sort or criminal
Marion Cotillard is pretty great, imo. I'm intrigued. Don't know what it is, but I have an easy time watching French films over any other type of foreign movie.
Looper is on my backburner. I'll give it a chance eventually. SNG is downloaded. Can't wait.
