When everything great about this film combines; breathtaking visuals, the thunderous score, it's timeless source material. It creates moments of such overwhelming energy and emotion that I found myself with tears and goosebumps. It isn't often that recent films have that effect on me. Now I've already seen this film twice and it was by far better the second time. Without having to catch every sentence, in fear of missing vital lore crammed into a runtime (even 3 hours wouldn't have been enough), I was able to lay back and enjoy this visceral sound and visual experience. Such magnificent quality and showmanship from Denis Villeneuve and Hans Zimmer. There wasn't a bad actor in the bunch either. Chalamet found levity within a character tossed and turned by his situation. Rebecca Ferguson, a veteran when in the same room as Timothy, was able to deliver the weight of Lady Jessica's powerful part in this story. A surprise highlight for me was Jason Mamou's Duncan Idaho. Part One was light on action, but the few moments of intense hand-to-hand combat were featuring my new favorite character, Duncan. It will be a long wait until Part Two and I'll be spending that time reading the source material, which is long over due for me.
