I very much enjoyed this film. I thought that Adam Driver was fantastic in this and I thought he didn’t really have that much material to work with but I found him totally convincing. This is actually Adam Driver’s second movie of 2021 with Ridley Scott. The other film was The Last Duel (2021). I did enjoy Lady Gaga’s performance although I did find her too much. The only actor that I couldn’t take seriously was Jared Leto. He so obviously wants a Golden Globe for his performance! I have to say that I did find this film far too long for what it should be standing in at 2hours 38mins. This has themes in of betrayal, decadence, revenge and murder.
