I was told to see this movie. Is it any good?
It's a pretty solid movie if you don't mind sub-titles.
I think the comparisons to some of the great mob movies are a little off base though.
I thought it was great, but I'm not sure it deserves GOAT mob movie status
And people who don't watch movies with subtitles are just robbing themselves of so many fantastic movies, I don't understand it
A Prophet is alright, but he's no Last Prophet...
Got robbed of an Oscar (like it means anything). I would highly recommend this movie to anyone.
Jacques Audiard is on a serious roll right now. Also check out De battre mon coeur s'est arrêté (the beat that my heart skipped) and especially Sur mes levres (Read my lips). Both very excellent, stylish French films.
You know, if you can get past the fact that they're all Frenchy and whatnot.
