come in here with a strong opinion of something you know nothing about.
I know for a fact that Jonathan Glazer is no Stanley Kubrick - whether he's consciously or unconsciously copying or mimicing Kubrick's style (I have seen that in other critiques of his work) is of no moment.
At least watch his movies before you feel confident in your opinion.
I don't have to watch the Transformers
to know they're terrible. I'm not putting Glazer in the same league as Bay - so hear me out - first off, again, I would watch Sexy Beast
before the others, and that's unlikely.
My gut check on Under the Skin
is a straight Species
rip-off with ScarJo in the lead. I'm not a big horror movie fan, anyway. This one gets decent (or better) reviews. But I don't have to watch it to know that Glazer is no Kubrick.
Damn good director.
You're not alone in this opinion. I'm glad you enjoy his work. Feel free to continue.
...still doesn't make him remotely as talented as Kubrick.
