Director Julia Leigh is a juxtaposition of youth and beauty and various forms of decay and ache. It looks really stunning and while enjoy it is not the right word, I watched it with a detached coolness that mirrored the primary actress.

the parts where Scorcese recreates the movie trickery of the old silent movies nearly makes this unwieldy, boring piece of crap worth watching. No child in its right mind would go within a million miles of this stinker.

It was the first time that a movement was challenging the authority and the police, and that they could articulate their believes in society, and it was also life changing, the movie really providing a better understanding of what punks went through: the scary barbarous shows with people at the peak of their physical shape, the fights and the punk image

the draggy theft flick is like “Ocean’s 11” for folks with personality flaws. A Madoff type character get naileds for a Ponzi scheme and abscons with the pensions of the employees at “The Tower” who want it back
