David O. Russell directs movies like he’s just snorted a big line of cocaine and been told the camera is a Grand Theft Auto controller – the actors in his scenes spend most of their time trying not to get run over. Intensity. That’s what Russell has in spades, and it’s again on show in…
Everybody knows Superman. Sometimes dismissed under the title of ‘The Big Blue Boy Scout’, he is the virtuous, infallible and virtually invincible symbol of American heroism; the superhero that begat all superheroes. Yet what’s often forgotten is that, despite possessing these traits, Superman is also something else – an alien, an ultimate example of the ‘other’. By focusing on the latter, director Zack Snyder lends interest to the former, providing a Superman whose otherworldliness serves only to make him more Earthly. It’s a strong starting point for the new franchise, but, as with the rest of mankind, this newly human Superman still has room for a little improvement.
