  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.

  5. Good to hear. I don't remember feeling the length on his previous movies, so hopefully I feel the same about this one.

    Yeah, but I caught it at the one theater in my area playing it.

    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.

    hey you lil piss baby

    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
