Quicksilver Is A Great Movie!
Rarely do I care to dispute someone’s opinion about the movie.
But Quicksilver is adorable little 80’s discovery, no matter how many times I confirm the same feeling.
Score from Tony Banks is superb, in fact I was surprised how prolific it was, easily bordering with some of the Thomas Newman’s electronic arrangements from the same decade. Less Then Zero comes to mind, as it uses same elegant synth pads for charging the right atmosphere.
Acting is absolutely genuine, even after 20 minutes, I have a good feeling about the crew, and they really click together. Some great shots and well developed sequences. Also, Gertz/Bacon chemistry is very likable, as it is not exploited from the story, in any other direction to serve exploitation for mass audience.
Nice photography work at the night scene when Bacon and Gertz are resting, again, with equal amount of score from Banks. I like supporting actors and characters they really add depth to Quicksilver.
Great opening sequence, almost like a TV show that has a great cultural tradition. Quicksilver is genuine and a very nice movie.
