Thank you for being so respectful to your filmmaking readers, by publishing an opinion piece on a film the critic hasn't seen. We really appreciate it.
I was impressed by the light roll off on highlights, the detail of her hair on the night shot backlight, and the lack of noise in shadows.
Am I seeing a video everyone else isn’t?
This looks quite strong for first looks IMO . . .
I actually like the spot and the creative.
I felt it was inspiring - not offensive.
Kinda confused by the haters-
Maybe they should ask themselves
why this ad / spot bothers them?
It simply reminded me that being “manly” or masculine means doing the right thing - and taking a stand for it - with courage- even when it’s the most difficult thing.
Hating that is kind of an odd reaction, no?
And of course it’s goal is to sell razors. That’s their job. Grey + Gillette. Like all companies- what our entire USA culture is built on (like it or not) - soooo hating on that is kinda odd too.
The comment about a female director also was brow raising- echoes the exact type of biased behavior cited in the ad lol
Beautifully written. And insightful. Thank you.
Totally off topic- Legendary is not a subsidiary of WB.
Cannot wait to see the work.
