First one ive seen that has looked remotely convincing.
It's entirely in keeping with their business strategy that they use such a short amount of time to try and pretend they are dominating the space. I'd imagine most people spend the majority of their time on netflix as i do- flicking through an absolute sea of hideously bad content to try and find something watchable. I usually give 7-10 shows a a 5 min look each before switching platforms or settling on something to actually watch. Netflix counts all the crap you didn't watch as "viewed" and of course their stuff has autoplay. Netflix is all about deception. Again the outrageous way they categorise all the shows and films they purchase the rights on as "netflix original" rather than "exclusive" which is the correct term that everyone else uses, tricking people into thinking they make all this content and dominate the space. Their whole strategy is built so heavily on deception and lies.
I thought this was going to be about the 1988 film with Steven Segal, also titled 'Nico'(Distributed as Above the Law in the U.S but Nico everywhere else). Slightly disappointed. But still, this looks good.
Incredible how just through sheer time and effort how much better the cgi looks here than in the bulk of hollywood megabudget stuff. Just shows you that cgi doesn't have to look terrible in the right(caring) hands and isn't budget dependant.
It's not wrong just because you knew literally zero about non-american filmmakers until you read a list from Scorsese. His list of the 39 foreign films you should see before you die had like 13 or so directors many with 3 films, 11 or 12 of the films were italian....for the whole of fucking world cinema!!!! It's laughable for someone with such a reputation for loving cinema. No director should appear even twice on such a short list, it just shows narrow viewing, which is surprising given his love for film.
Also my list wouldn't matter but i tell you what- it wouldn't have any filmmaker listed more than once, because we are talking about the whole of world cinema!!! That was a big part of my issue with his lists..
He named those two on his list of several dozen films you should see 'before you die' or something, so what? His lists are always massively narrow and contain very few non-american films, which is always very surprising for someone that talks so much about cinema. If you haven't noticed that it's you that needs to do research.
