Experience It In IMAX®
For One Week Only
And after that, experience in the movie theater in regular format! This is a must-see movie, read why!
Our experience started with a hosted question and answer plus interview session with David O. Russell and three of the actors from the movie (live in LA, on screen for us in NYC):
I did not get much out of this portion of the experience at the time, because I hadn’t seen the movie. That would soon change!
“Amsterdam,” the latest film from acclaimed writer/director David O. Russell, is a fascinating and richly intricate tale that brilliantly weaves historical fact with fiction for a timely, cinematic experience. 20th Century Studios’ and New Regency’s original crime epic about three close friends who find themselves at the center of one of the most shocking secret plots in American history, will open exclusively in theaters October 7th!
The movie starts in post WW1, with the lead up to WW2 quite evident in parts of the world. It becomes a whodunit quite quickly before we flashback to the almost end of the first world war.
Now it gets interesting. We see how through their war experience Christian Bales character becomes involved with a black regiment that were not treat equally, even though they were fighting for the same country as the white soldiers. After their injuries take them to a local hospital, we meet their nurse played by Margot Robbie, and she quickly forms a trio with Christian and John David Washington’s character. Christian is married, and Margot and John David were clearly the romantic couple in the situation.
Eventually everyone lands back in the states, and we start to hear more about why folks were killed in the beginning of the movie, and what nefarious group was behind these deaths. And that’s it from me, except to say that the movie was intriguing, suspenseful, romantic, and funny. It also illustrates how closely the events of the last few years parallels what has happened before, and that is what scared me the most coming out of the theater, this movie is based on some historical fact, with clear parallels to the political landscape of today.
The acting was superb. The three close friends I spoke about were excellent in their respective roles. Everyone else stood out as well. This is a must-see movie, well done from start to finish. And once it was over, everything discussed in the pre-interviews referenced above made much more sense!
