SNATCH (Desert Eagle Scene)

directed by Guy Ritchie starring Brad Pitt

images-3

Genre: Thriller-Comedy

Guy Ritchie’s sophomore follow-up to his 1998 sleeper hit Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch revisits the previous film’s territory of London’s crime-ridden underbelly, and does so with the same brand of humor and stylish direction that made Ritchie’s first effort a surprise success. With a labyrinthine plot that is ostensibly oriented around a missing diamond, Snatch introduces viewers to three groups of characters intent on retrieving the elusive stone, which has been stolen from an Antwerp jeweler.

In the first group are friends and business partners Turkish (Jason Statham, who also supplies the film’s voice-over narration) and Tommy (Stephen Graham), who join up with Mickey (Brad Pitt), an Irish gypsy and boxer. Turkish and Tommy make arrangements with Mickey to take a fall in a match engineered by lunatic gang leader Brick Top (Alan Ford). In another corner resides equally loony Russian gangster Boris the Blade (Rade Sherbedgia), who has asked Jewish gangster Franky Four Fingers (Benicio Del Toro) to place a bet on the match for him.

Rating: 8.5/10

BEST SONGS

“Where is my mind” by Pixies from Fight Club

Fincher was concerned that bands experienced in writing film scores would be unable to tie the movie’s themes together, so he sought a band which had never recorded for film. He pursued Radiohead ,but chose the breakbet producing duo Dust Brothers to score the film. The duo created a post-modern score that included drum loops, electronic scratches, and computerized samples. Dust Brothers performer Michael Simpson explained the setup: “Fincher wanted to break new ground with everything about the movie, and a nontraditional score helped achieve that.” The end credits feature the song « Where is my mind » by the Pixies.

“8th and final rule: if this is you first night at fight club, you have to fight!”

– FIGHT CLUB directed by David Fincher

fightclub

Genre : Thriller- Crime- Drama

Fight Club is a David Fincher’s movie released in 1999 based on the novel of the same name written by Chuck Palahniuk. Norton plays the unnamed protagonist, an « everyman » who is discontented with his white-collar job. He forms a “fight club” with soap maker Tyler Durden, played by Pitt, and they are joined by men who also want to fight recreationally. The film’s narrator attends support groups of all kinds as a way to “experience” something within his unfeeling, commercial existence.

Fincher intended Fight Club’s violence to serve as a metaphor for the conflict between a generation of young people and the value system of advertising.
