Bret Easton Ellis omvärderar Finchers Zodiac

Bret Easton Ellis gillar Zodiac

När författaren Bret Easton Ellis låg sömnlös i natt bestämde han sig för att se om David Finchers mästerliga Zodiac. Det resulterade i sju ganska så briljanta tweets om denna gravt underskattade film:

1. Can’t sleep. Rarely change my mind about movies. The last time: Fincher’s ”Zodiac” which I disliked when I first saw it. Now: a masterpiece.

2. Zodiac: a meditation on the nature of truth and how it loses us. 3 hours of people trying to find the truth and don’t. The human condition.

3. Zodiac: the only two people who find the truth are in an airport and they’re not even in the movie and then it all slams shut. Devastating.

4. Zodiac: not even Hitchcock was this perverse or discursive. The crimes are over in the first third and then the futile search begins. Great.

5. Zodiac: an existential masterpiece that’s not about the crimes but about the search for meaning and the ultimate futility of that. Life…

6. Zodiac: I disliked it the first time because it was being sold as something it wasn’t. As a fan of Fincher that first viewing was um weird.

7. Zodiac: this kind of Empire film will never be made again in post-Empire on such a lavish scale even though it’s a very post-Empire movie.

Jag tycker det här är en lysande analys. Vad tycker ni?

Gillar rockmusik, konfetti och kulörta lyktor. Tittar gärna på premiumkanalernas serieutbud, skräckfilm och amerikansk independent. Medverkar med jämna mellanrum i Sveriges Radios PP3 med den föga blygsamma titeln "filmexpert".
