The Counsellor (2013)

28 Nov 2014

fresh perspective
this is pointless (either I can’t find a point or I disagree whole-heartedly)
cliché message

immersive atmosphere
beautiful scenes

expected outcome
acceptable suspense (developments predicted minutes before)
exceptional suspense (developments not predicted)

intense action
realistic effects

untraceable (natural) acting


it just felt a bit pretentious. and everything seems to be driven by the monetary greed and that is it. Everybody acted “predictably” based on their different level of greed and ability/power. and the inability to see true value independent of money. (the fact that the counsellor felt the need to buy a “rare” diamond etc.)
