Dragged Across Concrete is out now!!
3 for 3
159min?! That is a lengthy runtime. I'll check it out, though. Loved his first 2 movies.
Worth (almost) every minute, don’t think you feel the length — felt that way about his previous two, though.
Good to hear. I don't remember feeling the length on his previous movies, so hopefully I feel the same about this one.
I can't wait. Hope I can get to it tonight. If not, definitely sometime this weekend.
Is it on demand?
Yeah, but I caught it at the one theater in my area playing it.
You can rent it on Amazon for $6.99. I'll try to catch it this week, excited
Thought it was great. Probably my least favorite of his three, but liked it so much in already wanting to watch it again.
I love all 3, but I’d probably put Bone at the bottom. After Brawl and now Concrete, I couldn’t stop thinking about them after and wanted to rewatch right away.
Also, loved the people in my showing that clearly didn’t see Bone or Brawl and were like ???? walking out. Makes me think more people need to watch more, for example, Korean movies.
P.S. Kittles deserves as much praise as G*bson.
I was surprised that this film (Dragged Across Concrete) was not as blatantly right wing/MAGA as it was made out to be. There's definitely major questionable politics running through the whole thing and it's hard to tell if these characters are a mouthpiece for the director's own views or simply a portrayal of these people. Casting Gibson surely doesn't aid in figuring that out either. But I thought the film itself was kinda outstanding. Loved the way it was lit, and the whole post-Tarantino crime film filtered through Slow Cinema aesthetic really worked for me. I really liked how baggy and drawn out so much of it felt, actually portraying the tedium of stakeouts etc. For a 159 minute film so intent filling itself with dead air, it is still really engrossing.
I think Adam Nayman's piece for The Ringer does a pretty excellent job at grappling with the film. ‘Dragged Across Concrete’ Pushes Buttons Until They Break
I’m way late on this news
IMDB shows Vince Vaughn will be back.
finally saw Dragged Across Concrete
Will watch Any thing he does
Even though I feel guilty because he's conservitive, his films just have a very specific tone, and are very brutal.
His movies have all been awesome. Need another one now.
Might check out one of his novels
Watched all three of Zahler’s movies this weekend and loved all three. I’m in for anything he does.
Favorite of the 3? Brawl In Cell Block 99 and Bone Tomahawk are both incredible.
Brawl In Cell Block 99 is probably my favourite. Just had me enthralled the entire time.
Brawl is probably my favorite, Bone Tomahawk is just too brutal. It’s great but hard to watch.
the second half of Dragged is phenomenal but it definitely takes it time getting there.
This is on prime to rent for 99 cents so I’ll probably finally watch it this week.
it’s probably on @Joycean ’s streaming service
Bone had my favorite dialogue, but Brawl was just so much fun to watch. I really like how economical his stories are from a plotting perspective. Like he just hits the story running and then fills in the spaces with really interesting scenes.
Dragged was great, loved the performances by Gibson, Vaughn, and Kittles, but it probably could have been a little shorter.
I also enjoy how even the side characters feel fully realized. Like Kittles’ partner (biscuit?) could have easily just been a kind of empty side character but Zahler takes the time to give everyone a personality, even if they’re not a huge part of the story.
I think Bone Tomahawk is my favorite. It’s brutal but I love the cast and I’m a sucker for westerns.
This was whatever. Needed to be about 45 minutes shorter. Much preferred Bone and haven’t seen dragged yet.
