Domino (2019), by Brian De Palma – Review

It is overwhelmingly predictable, repeatedly spent by other filmmakers with better results than he has obtained.

There is Brian De Palma is his best cinematographic moment, at least that seems after seeing the result of Domino. It is a forcefully predictable film, repeatedly worn by other filmmakers with better results than he has obtained.

I know
I could say that it is extremely ‘maniquea’ in the use of ‘goodness’ and ‘evil’
of its protagonists, of the "wicked" and the "really good", as well as of
the stories that surround them; which makes it inevitably boring.

It is extremely ‘maniquea’ in the use of ‘goodness’ and ‘evil’ of its protagonists.

The theme of universal terrorism spread throughout the world needs a lot of imagination when it comes to the big screen. Reality (as in many other things) surpasses us and the director of Scarface It is far from surprising, perhaps due to the lack of good production as the "bad tongues" say, in these low hours of this filmmaker.

It is not the first time that a good director reinvents himself and goes out of the tedium in which he has gotten; Of course, good fault is now for De Palma.
