A beautiful presentation of a weird, sporadically exciting film that merges the tropes of the James Bond series with a startlingly expressive aesthetic.
There’s much to admire here, from its symbolically sickly aesthetic to its clearly shot action sequences.
Finally, a Bond adventure one can enjoy without apology.
Casino Royale is one of the good ones and not just for the way it wittily recontextualizes several series touchstones.
Well, I guess this proves that Americans aren’t the only ones apt to characterize the French as obnoxious, power-hungry fops.
Terrible film, but you know the DVD is going to be good when the interactive menus all but have sex with you.
