"“The Brutalist” is described as “an epic saga and an unconventional love story” about a visionary artist and his wife who flee post-war Europe and come to America. And that’s when their lives are forever changed by a mysterious and wealthy new client. “Amidst a revamped cycle of populism and prejudice in the 21st Century, ‘The Brutalist’ is a film which celebrates the triumphs of the most daring and accomplished visionaries; our ancestors,” said Corbet. “It is the project which is so far the closest to my heart and family history. I so look forward to reuniting with many of our closest collaborators, as well as some exciting new ones, to realize what we all anticipate to be a vital and urgent motion picture.”"
I had mixed feelings about Vox Lux but not as mixed as many -- what I loved I really liked, and you totally get the sense that one of these times everything will click perfectly into place for Corbet and he'll knock one outta the park. And I would love for this to be the one, with this fucking cast. (And I'll add that I really hope that Brutalist Architecture is part of the focus here because I am a massive fan.)
