Atomic Blonde

This movie is so ridiculously my jam that it’s, well, ridiculous. I already had high hopes for it after hearing good stuff when it was released in theaters and loving the trailer, and my expectations were surpassed. I got all the brilliant action I was expecting — including that truly brilliant chaotic/messy fight scene in the hallway — but even more than that, I loved the way it was shot, especially the heavy use of colored lighting. There are also some really interesting takes on presenting something — on top of the fights, I loved the car chase sequence that is mostly shot from the interior of the car. Oh, and did I mention the killer late 80s soundtrack? La-la-loved it.
