Three sentence movie reviews: A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints.
, so this time was ready for the rather feral nature of the youth in question. However, this time I was watching it for the Channing Tatum perspective* and it was quite enjoyable. He does feral and angry quite well, which is interesting because he is not very much of either of those things in any other movie.
Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home
*My favorite excerpt of a review on Rotten Tomatoes: “The real star is Channing Tatum as the alpha-chimp leader of Dito’s pack. The camera doesn’t just love him, it wants to marry him, settle down, and have his babies.” So true, Stuart McGurk of thelondonpaper, so true.
Interesting that this earlier movie shows a side of him that his more current movies do not. I wonder if that is by his choice or by the opportunities that are sent his way. I'm guessing his publicist/agent keep tabs on his image.
I think that yes, he moved (or was advised to move) in directions that were not just "brute" which is where he could have ended up, given that he is a big slab of meat. It might be fun to see him in something feral again, though.
