But wait is no one going to talk about those whip-pans!? What kind of PTA fan site is this?

Not only whip pans, but whip pans combined with dolly-ins. And a blue suit!

"Do you laugh at jealousy?"

"No, I don't even laugh at seasickness! I happen to regard jealousy as the seasickness of passion."

Lowery and his team, especially cinematographer Joe Anderson and composer Daniel Hart, give “The Old Man & the Gun” a very period-heavy feel. It’s a movie that doesn’t just take place in a different era—the true story unfolds, mostly, in 1981—but feels like it was made in a different era too. The film stock, the music choices, the cinematic language—it’s all very different from what we’re accustomed to in 2018, enhancing the magical, timeless aspect of the entire project. It's as cheesy as it sounds but this is one of those movies for which the phrase "they don't make 'em like that any more" was invented.

this is sloppy writing but enhances a point i've made and am continuing to build. okay so he calls it "very period-heavy" then says "feels like it was made in a different era" then says "the magical, timeless aspect of the entire project."

what i'm saying is these aren't period movies that Lowery makes, but dreamscape movies. which is the conclusion this critic reaches toward the end of his paragraph. it reminds people of this/that but frankly they weren't ever quite made in this exact way, and The Lowery Touch is unique to itself, a rare bird specimen.

KCRW Partner Screening: The Old Man & The Gun - **ft. Q&A with David Lowery and our own Madeleine Brand

that's fun. earlier that same day i'll be with Susan Orlean and Eileen Myles, and Lowery would be a great triple but i don't think that'll happen. shoutout to becoming a cultural person though, great job.
