I totally understand that the theatrical experience is completely subjective. Growing up in the Bronx, it wasnt uncommon to be into a movie only for a fight to break out and shutting the theater down. My wife ad I only go to certain films, mostly action adventure ones because those are the most fun to watch in large groups. But movie lengths getting longer means I gotta be careful drinking too much just beforehand and Ive definitely been too close to some obnoxious audience members, so really staying at home is really the way to go nowadays. I just bought a beautiful 4K HDR screen for 300 dollars and a great sound system. Drama, horror, documentary, those I prefer to watch those in isolation so I can really get wrapped up in them. Plus a lot easier on the wallet.
My main issue with The Irishman VFX is that they don't look younger so much as "smoother". It reads more like a heavy beauty post filter. At least with the deepfake, I'm looking at 40 year old DeNiro. Its not flawless, but its not nearly as distracting as what they finally went with.
The second issue is that its 70 year old men playing 40 year olds but they cant because they are 70 years old. At 40, you still have that youthful spryness in your movements. I present the store beatdown scene and that sad kick that DeNiro delivers as to why perhaps casting younger actors would've been better.
According to Public records, Nakoula was charged in 1997 with the intent to make narcotic drugs, spent one year in jail, violated his 3 year probation on those charges in 2002 and spent another year in prison. then in 2010, he was federally charged with bank fraud, spent another year in prison, followed by a 5 year probation, one of the conditions of his probation was that he could not have access to the internet without approval from his probation officer. Which he violated in 2012 when he distributed the film you mentioned via Youtube under a false name. Prior to even all that, Nakoula had massive tax liens against him for failing to pay multiple business taxes well inti the hundreds of thousands of dollars. So it would appear that Nakoula's issues are that he cant seem to get out of his way.
Truly profound information!
Is the book printed in BOTH French and English?
