Since reblogging this last night, I have come up with a story for it, wherein Cable Sweater Guy is a physics student, and Partly Naked Guy is his roommate’s friend from the CSC department. And some morning CSG comes in and PNG is making coffee because he’s been up all night hanging out with the roommate and compiling code, plus he says he thinks better partly-naked, and right now what’s going through CSG’s head is something like “UGH, computer science isn’t even real science anyway, and why does he have to be in MY KITCHEN being all HOT and PARTLY-NAKED and A COMPUTER SCIENTIST.” And then they woo each other with their massive intellects, and it’s great.
At one point near the end, right before Robert DeNiro is going to try and pull his getaway (SPOILER ALERT: Robert DeNiro tries to pull a getaway) they show him pull into the service alley behind a hotel, make a three point turn, and then park. But, like, with lots of edits so that you see the car go down the alley, you see the driver’s point of view as he makes a three point turn, you see the car park. It’s a lot of time spent on this whole parking situation when we’ve already been watching the movie for two and a half hours. Just little things like that. There’s also a scene where Al Pacino is riding around in a helicopter and then he calls someone on his Walkie Talkie and asks them to meet him at a heliport with a car but so it’s like well then what was the point of him being in the helicopter? Don’t get me wrong, helicopters = megaCOOL. But, so, ANYWAY, it’s a pretty good movie, like I said, and a little long, like I said, but overall thumbs up, Michael Mann. Let me be the first person in 16 years to tell you that you did a good job making this movie.
“Prendete una scena qualsiasi di un film qualsiasi. Poi immaginate che qualcuno entri in campo non annunciato, sorprendendo i personaggi. Se a quel punto, a logica, i personaggi dovrebbero solo rivestirsi in tutta fretta strillando «possiamo spiegarti! Non è come sembra!», esiste la possibilità che il rapporto tra quei due sia un tantino ambiguo.”
