5:49 pm
sense that it's notjust surface, there's something more important happening underneath. obviously part of me is watching what have the night with the early bond to? this is very solidly directed, the action set pieces very well done. the script went through a number of rewrites, phoebe walbridge famously came and a polish on it. there are times that the script feels a little bit different voices talking but that said, the underlying dna of the film is strangely coherent. and a chilly since i saw her, and we start last night, i thought about it more and more and i thought about the way in which the plot very cleverly plays with the idea of family whether it's personal or political, whether it's personal or political, whether it's personal or political, whether it's criminal and really intertwines that into the dna of the plot. but also like to say, daniel craig is my favourite bond. oh, is he? he is. but it's important to
5:50 pm
acknowledge that he comes from a lineage that goes from george lazenby to timothy dalton. and dalton is the great underrated bond. and i think he picks up that kind of mantle from him. i was really very impressed. and i are gone and thinking after all this time, it's good to be ok.— thinking after all this time, it's good to be ok. thinking after all this time, it's aood to be ok. ~ . , ., good to be ok. much better than ok. i have heard — good to be ok. much better than ok. i have heard it's _ good to be ok. much better than ok. i have heard it's a _ good to be ok. much better than ok. i have heard it's a that _ good to be ok. much better than ok. i have heard it's a that it _ good to be ok. much better than ok. i have heard it's a that it helps - good to be ok. much better than ok. i have heard it's a that it helps if- i have heard it's a that it helps if you'd seen spector to get the plot. obviously without giving any plot spoilers. do you think you need to have seen spector or does it stand alone in terms of understanding was going on? put alone in terms of understanding was auoin on? , ., alone in terms of understanding was auoin on? , ._ , going on? put it this way, the first bond film going on? put it this way, the first ltond film i — going on? put it this way, the first bond film i ever— going on? put it this way, the first bond film i ever saw _ going on? put it this way, the first bond film i ever saw not _ going on? put it this way, the first bond film i ever saw not having i bond film i ever saw not having seen any bond films was live and let day with roger more. i did understand what was going on but there was a bunch of stuff that was exciting. on any level... who in the world hasn't seen spector? any level. .. who in the world hasn't seen spector?— any level... who in the world hasn't seen spector?_ yes, | seen spector? using spector? yes, but recently _ seen spector? using spector? yes, but recently re- — seen spector? using spector? yes, but recently re- watched. _ seen spector? using spector? yes, but recently re- watched. it - seen spector? using spector? yes, but recently re- watched. it helps. | but recently re— watched. it helps. but i think it makes sense in and of itself. not all the daniel craigs were great, question of sport was a bit all over the place i do think this is a really film.—
