One film where the thoughts of a character are told in a voice-over with great success: The Dead (from 1987, directed by John Huston, and probably his best film). Actually it would be a considerably lesser film without the voice over. Also Laurence Olivier's decision to do some of the monologues of his Hamlet (1948) as voice-overs works well.

A Most Violent Year (2014) - 8/10
Highly well crafted film, though it didn't resonate with me on any deeper level.

I always enjoyed the film. Can't remember that there was any voice over, so it seems it didn't bother me. It' a 8/10



If you can't remember any voiceover, I don't know how you can remember anything about that movie.

I can.
I have watched the films 3 or 4 times at least, but the last time was some years ago.

What does this tell the world? Probably that the voice over is of minor importance for the film's impact. Important is the fatalistic mood, the melancholic jazz score, Moreau, the openness of the style, the relative disinterest in the crime plot, stuff like that, all that what made it a nouvelle vague forerunner. And don't ask me anything about the story ...

Whiplash (2014) 8.5/10


Since I am obligated to mention Metallica at least once every ten posts ... Metallica had a song named Whiplash on their first album, released in 1983 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJhR7nex47w

Lone Star (1996) - 7.5/10

The mystery story is hardly satisfactional and really just an envelope for the stories of the town characters, which are luckily very good, though the ending was unnecessary, and not of my taste. Still rather good, which I didn't think all the times I saw bits of it on TV.

What We Do in the Shadows (2014) - 7/10

Funnier and more original than most vampire comedies (I'm telling this as if I knew at least 153 of those...), but in the end I kinda lost interest (so the problem could easily be me).

Whiplash (2014) 8.5/10

See? When you want...

Skyfall lol/10

Still doesn't get the plan of any character in this movie. They're just as random as Dark Night Rises characters. The movie is still enjoyable (and I'll see it again) mainly thanks to the amazing cinematography and some inspired stuff by Sam Mendes (who, in the other hand, destroys any attempt at humor and Bond cleverness they had left in the script).

SPOILER:
I had not noticed the first time but in the end they act just like they had won although the bad guy won 100% of the film (despite being the most stupid Bond villain ever), including the end. The MI6 lost every single thing they had to lose.

Another Skyfall spoiler:

The film did not notice either. But Bond sets a trap in which he is caught himself. And of course M with him, so that instead hiding her he helps Silva to kill her. That's even for a Bond film a bit too much illogical behaviour.

Of course, some innovative use of off-voice thoughts (fuck (censored), my plan was completely idiotic, but at least it brings me back a male M, just like in the good ol' times) would have let the audience know what really happened.

The triumphalism at the end is entirely about the successful reboot of the series. No one in the production gave 2 fucks about the story.

'71 - 8/10 - British thriller set during the Troubles in Belfast, focusing on a British soldier separated from his unit and caught between all sides. Basically a grittier update of Odd Man Out, with the same manhunt/hide the fugitive structure, and an even bleaker ending. Lots of action and some rich thumbnail sketches of the different IRA factions, the Ulster Loyalists and amoral British MRF.
