Intelligent Filmmaking, Epic Acting!

I was originally drawn to this film because of the massive range of absolutely stunning actors - I mean, Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hardy... all in one movie?! YES PLEASE. They did not disappoint, either! The slow pacing was a refreshing change from other 'wham-bam' films these days, and I am in awe of the attention to detail. All the small noises, such as the scratch of a pen on paper, all worked to create the suspenseful atmosphere. As well as this, I was struck by the fact that there was much less dialogue than other films - so much was said without words, and it was far more impacting and touching for this. It probably isn't a film for everyone, but that won't stop me from recommending to everyone! :)
