Bohemian Rhapsody, 2018
Alright! The last, but no less important film in the list of nominees for The Best Picture has undergone a lot of criticism and problems with the director's place, but the result is a very atmospheric film.
The history of the formation of the British group Queen, as well as their ups and downs. From misfits to world stars, whose songs sing along with the whole stadium. The way Freddie Mercury (Rami Malek), Roger Taylor (Ben Hardy), John Deacon (Joe Mazzello), and Brian May (Gwilym Lee) set the bar high for the next generation of musicians.
The central figure of the film - #RamiMalek,
showed that he can play not only a person with social phobia, but also a full life, energetic and legendary Freddie Mercury. On Malek's shoulders put a great responsibility not just to play, but to be the person, and I think he succeeded with it, and for this he was nominated for The Best Actor.
The casting director of the film, who were able to select the actors with great accuracy, deserve special praise. #GwilymLee,
#JoeMazzello and #BenHardy were the ideal alter ego of their characters and deserve no less recognition. Also #LucyBoynton, #AllenLeech,
#AidanGillen and many others, they even made cameo of David Bowie , but, alas, just from the back.
In general, the entire film crew deserves applause and praise, from costume designers to sound engineers. Although the film seemed to me a bit tight, and sometimes it was a cliche, but this didn't prevent the Bohemian Rhapsody to leave a pleasant feeling and a lot of energy, as if I had really been to Live Aid concert. I say thanks to Dexter Fletcher for bringing the film to the end, and the wealth of #Queen was revealed to the younger generation. And I wish a great luck to #BohemianRhapsody at #Oscars 2019. 9/10
