Eggers did an awesome AMA
I had never seen Pattinson on screen before, and he is actually superb here. It's a technically beautiful movie. And the performances are mesmerizing.Thursday night, 7 pm. I don't love Pattinson, but what the heck...why not. I need a good "scary" movie for Halloween.
1.19 framing as in the beginning of the talkies when the soundtrack was on the exposed film.Saw this on Sunday and liked it a lot. Loved the 3:3 framing and the black and white, contributed to the claustrophobic atmosphere. Dafoe and Pattinson are really good, essential when they basically carry the movie for almost two hours.

Agree, 100% this was one of the most wonderful screenplays in a long time. It is very much set-up like a play with the two characters playing off each other in a small space. DaFoe just kills it in this picture. Not sure any actor would have nailed that dialogue the way he does. Shame on failing to nominate his acting and this script.Absolutely loved this. Oscar noms are out and only nommed for Cinematography. DaFoe got robbed, this was the best acting I have ever seen. Screenplay got robbed.
I think that was ad libbed tho.
