I was interested in “The Lost City of Z” based on its festival presence, however, when I saw the trailer, I was even more pumped. It looked like a truly interesting adventure film, so I ended up doing a double so that I could make sure that I saw it.
This film was actually really unique. It was a blend of a biographical drama, an adventure film, and a psychological thriller. The tone works very well and keeps the film interesting. There isn’t a huge amount of commentary in the film, as it focuses more on the characters. The protagonist is very well-developed, functioning as a character for whom I was willing and eager to follow his story. The comedic relief in the film is also very effective.
The film is also beautifully made. The cinematography is fluid and adds to the meaning of the film. The set design is also very impressive, creating a sense of grandeur and making the film that much more impressive. The acting in the film is also great. Charlie Hunnam delivers a very good lead performance, delivering the right emotions. I never thought I’d say this, but Robert Pattinson is amazing in this film, stealing the show when he is on-screen. He delivers both the emotion and the comedic relief well.
Overall, I was very impressed by “The Lost City of Z”. It was an interesting and well-made adventure film. I highly recommend this film if you get the chance to see it.
