I may be going to a screening this week. Look interesting.
Can’t believe it’s almost been 5 years since his last film, eager to see what he does here. Gillian Flynn being involved makes me think it could be quite the change of pace.
This wasn't really on my radar until I got the invite to the screener, but it does seem like the tone could be quite different from his other films. I'm hoping I can make it to the screening. I was supposed to see Eidola and Capstan that night, so I don't know what the timing's going to be like.
This was good but definitely seemed like it was reaching for a more mainstream audience than any of McQueen's previous work. The cast is nuts (even the small roles). I'll be interested to see what gets changed between now and November.
I like the premise a lot.
My type of movie, can’t wait.
Looks good, I’m in.
in for the cast
Daniel Kaluuya and Brian Tyree Henry are in this too? I'm in.
This was great. Relatively straight forward but superb casting and some great shots.
Wow, this was absolutely incredible. And everyone in this is top notch
This was superb, granted I can't really compare this to McQueen's previous directorial efforts because I have only seen Shame and I didn't really get much from that but this was highly enjoyable.
Not really into into heist films but I can’t turn down this cast and crew.
This had a solid debut weekend here in the UK, got into third place with more than $3.1m. I'll be surprised if this doesn't do well in the US.
Absolutely can't wait for more people to see it. I mean, people are evidently comparing it to Heat (sorry if that overhypes it!)
I don't see how it can be compared to that to be honest.
Never saw it so I wouldn't know, but that's what I've been hearing a couple times
Yeah that comparison in no way works. Widows is not as violent, doesn't have anywhere near as much action, has more political undertones and the lead characters aren't hardened criminals.
Don't shoot the messenger!
I'm not haha, just baffling to me that anyone could make that comparison outside of them both being heist films.
Yeah, this was pretty solid.
The dialogue was often distractingly bad. There also just isn’t much there in term of depth. The heist / prep was enjoyable enough, I guess.
