The Good German.

Fans of movies will probably like The Good German. I liked it although its not a real pick-me-up type of film. Shot and presented using old movie studio techniques, it is a real throw back to old black and white cinema. The thing looks great with interesting use of lighting. A quick pace and quick dialogue that you really have to pay attention to. The surprises are how it uses a modern day tone. There is quite a bit of profanity and sex that is sometimes quite jarring. Imagine Casablanca with profanity. Yeah it doesn't seem right.

For opening weekend, it wasn't that busy at the Grant, so this may not last that long in the theatre.
