Tuesday’s episode saw the return of familiar faces, an overall smooth job, and Smurfs spiral into madness, regret, and ultimately: fear.
Firstly, there is absolutely no scenario in which Smurf dies at the hands of someone—or something—other than Pope. It just won’t happen.
The style is unique, particularly with how the action scenes are captured.
The stage has been set for a new leader, and the crew may not agree…
‘Nox’ doesn’t suffer from this symptom plaguing the indie film scene, balancing both style and substance to near perfection.
Harper seems to be withdrawn from the life that he, and everyone else, lives. Frames consist of long, deep focus shots, almost as if the viewer is looking down a narrow corridor. Conrad Hall’s cinematography has an aesthetic of tangibility.
His detachment from reality ultimately becomes his greatest downfall and the film wholeheartedly acknowledges his distance from the truth, thus rendering him out of the frame entirely by the end.
The stakes are considerably higher than most espionage movies, too.
