What is RM's opinion on AN Redux? I never saw it, but have always felt the film is absurdly overrated. I did a whole unit in college on the translation from Heart of Darkness to the screen; have done a critical viewing of the film several times. Does the Redux offer anything game changing?

The plantation scene is hotly debated, and definitely adds a new dimension to the movie.

To be honest, while I've seen Redux a number of times, I'm not sure I've ever watched the regular theatrical cut in one sitting.

Just read about that scene. It definitely adds a new dimension, but I can't imagine it would change my opinion of the flick.

Not ranking things, but the run of Sicario -> Arrival -> Blade Runner 2049 is pretty great...

Yeah, I really like Incendies and Enemy. Wasn't a big fan of Prisoners.

Prisoners wasn't perfect, but it was gripping as hell. Uncommonly so. I put it on late at night, planning to watch half of it one day and the rest the next day. Even though i never felt myself loving the movie, I couldn't turn it off. That's rare and very difficult and impressive. It might be my favorite of his for that reason
