IndieWire posted a great article on 9 Lessons Studios should learn from the Indie world this Summer.  No 8 mentioned The Childhood of a Leader.  I have to admit that I rarely see studio blockbustres, I’m just not a fan, which is why I love Robert working on indie films – even when he’s only in them for 15 minutes or so.  Take a look at what Indiewire said:

8) Patience Is A Virtue (“Hell Or High Water,”“The Childhood Of A Leader”)

Despite being drab and lifeless, many of this summer’s blockbusters trafficked in extreme violence that leveled metropolises: the mystical gods of “Suicide Squad” terrorized Midway City, Krang tried to level NYC in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows,” and the aliens of “Independence Day: Resurgence” sent the London Bridge falling down. But none of it resonated, given that all of these sequences boiled down to screeching CGI madness. What really succeeded were indies which valued quiet scenes over mayhem, so when violent moments broke out, they packed a true punch. Brady Corbet’s meditative “The Childhood of a Leader” took the relatively radical step of…introducing characters and letting them talk to each other. By the time a handful of stones in a child’s hand pulled the rug from under us, our voyeurism was shattered. And although David Mackenzie’s “Hell or High Water” was a bank robbery tale, gunshots burned because they upset the rest of the film’s shaggy calm. Texas never looked so lovely as the night before our central characters’ biggest heist, as they’re drinking beer, wrestling, laughing and bullshitting. By creating quiet moments between characters you root for and empathize with, these films hit so much harder than thousands of faceless citizens fleeing extraterrestrial doom. – William Earl [My emphasis]

    So true. The menace in Childhood is more horrifying because the world created is real.
    I find to give a damn about anything where CGI is the hero.
