- Joe Manganiello and Matt Bomer barely had one page of lines in the movie.
the MTRCB bastardized the film with several cuts,(Iggy points out that it’s the distributors who cut the film so it can make the lower MTRCB viewer rating) which made the movie look cheap—frames would jump forward abruptly, and it made that sound too. If I were Steven Soderbergh and found out about it, I’d raise hell,
- because the film was beautifully shot, it truly was. I loved how the entire film looked as if it was layered with an Instagram filter.
- I’m not even talking about the stripper scenes. I enjoyed those, yes (hello?!), but they were more of a comic relief… and too short, anyway. *Harhar*
- This is the first time I ever fell deeply in love with the cinematography and camera work without it being a ‘landscape movie,’ e.g., Lord of the Rings.
- Here’s an example of how beautiful the framing was: I still remember that shot wherein Channing Tatum rested his head on the couch—should have been a banal frame but the film made it look important.
- It also felt like Steven was shooting from the hip and approaching the objects of his desire as close as possible.
- I like the lead actress: I say, Mandy Moore; Pam says, Sheryl Crow. Her protectiveness over her younger brother gave me the warm fuzzies since I have an Ate, too.
