As a spin-off from the favourite films thread, I’d be interested in the opinion of anyone here who may have seen this film recently.
Revolver, despite widespread anticipation took a battering at the box office, recieved incredibly bad reviews and unless DVD sales recoup costs, then it looks like Guy Ritchie will struggle to get funding for his next gangster epic.
Yet, I’ve seen it three times now and I think it has the makings of a cult classic. A real sleeper. It walks all over LS and 2B’s/Snatch.
Remeber Kubrick’s "The Shining"? Tanked at the Box office in similar fashion and now considered a modern classic.
Ritchie’s film imho is clever, intricate, deep, well filmed and carries its European influences like a badge of honour. I can’t say I enjoy it particularly – you’ll struggle to feel good about anything afterward – but it made me think and there are two scenes in it which are utterly memorable.
Anyone agree that this is a cult classic in the making? Or do you consider it a rightful bargain bin filler? Im genuinely interested.
