" Domino " has been widely condemned on this site for its frenetic editing style and " sickening " photography. It's detractors cite its superficiality and criticize its deployment of " style over substance" I couldn't disagree more. I believe that " Domino " represents the absolute height of Tony Scott's film-making career. After having created the dominant Hollywood action movie style throughout the late eighties and early nineties Tony Scott has moved progressively closer to a more subjective style of cinema. As early as "Crimson <more>
Tide" Scott used his stylistic talent to portray the inner worlds of his characters- the claustrophobia and drama inherent in the conflict on board a nuclear submarine was embodied in the excellent use of long lenses combined with dutched-angle framing. This was then carried through to " Enemy Of The State" and "Spy Game" which visually represented the worlds of surveillance and espionage respectively. " Man On Fire" was an extreme departure , a move into an expressionist more painterly aesthetic. Here Scott used an antiquated hand cranked camera and flash frames to express his character's explosive rage . Although not entirely successful it introduced the techniques which were to find their full expression in " Domino"Couched in the framing device of an FBI interrogation " Domino" presents the life of the infamous bounty hunter via her narrated disjointed fragments of memory. She grasps at memories as we all do- in fragments, flashes and brief snatches. As Domino relays her story verbally Scott relays it visually illustrating not only the events which she describes but also the point of view which guides them. She does have " traces of mescaline" in her system but her individual vision is anyway Unusual -that of an woman who eschewed the life of luxury for bounty hunting. It is when Domino begins to relate the events which lead to her captivity that Scott really lets rip. Together with Cinematographer Dan Mindel and composer Harry-Gregson Williams Scott orchestrates a postmodern canvas of contemporary Americana. Gradually we begin to realize that unusual though she may be Domino is no more disjointed than the "90210" culture she has rejected. As she wades through this cultural melange Scott makes his viewer more aware of the innocence which it destroys through the underprivileged children which the narrative introduces. Ultimately Scott portrays their salvation as the only escape we have from this surreal trip. To criticize this movie for being overly stylized is akin to criticizing a Picasso or a Pollock for not representing that which is recognizably human. Like any great painting the meaning in " Domino" is in the surface and the surface is everything. I am not in any way associated with Scott Free but have always been and will continue to be a huge admirer of Tony Scott's work
I wanted to dislike this movie ever since I saw the first annoying trailer, which I noticed they pulled and replaced with a new one minus the "I am a Bounty Hunter, we all fall down." being said repeatedly. I was pleasantly surprised though, and really loved it despite some hyper-stylization throughout.I'm not sure what others mean by being able to believe Keira Knightley's portrayal of Domino Harvey, I was amazed at how cool and composed her performance was throughout the movie. It must have been difficult to portray such an atypical character, but she really shined.Edgar <more>
Ramirez also gave a great performance as Choco and I also loved that most of his Spanish language dialogue wasn't subtitled. Having grown up in Texas and being able to understand Spanish it really added some immersion to the scenes.Overall Domino as a movie was exactly what I wanted to see after a long week. Explosions, awesome action, great humor, Christopher Walken, and a unique screenplay. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys most action films, especially Tarantino or Leone. It does have a very heavy amount violence though, so keep that in mind. If the level of violence in Reservoir Dogs was fine, you shouldn't have a problem with it.
A brilliant movie from a brilliant director (by Ltas)
Put it right up there with the best ever made! This movie will be discussed in Film schools for decades to come. Tony Scott has made his masterpiece, a commentary on who we are as a nation and how we view ourselves. Every stereo type is exploited the poor black child, the stupid actor, the greedy producer, the Latin who refuses to speak English, the middle eastern bomber etc. In the midst of it all Domino Harvey, our pretty, bored, upper class, white model, who is so numb and disconnected that she decides to become a bounty hunter only to end up becoming who she had always been, her mother. <more>
From the Japanese goldfish tattoo on her neck , which in fact translated means nothing more then "WHITE" he can't make it more obvious then that! , to "There are three kinds of people in the world, the rich, the poor, and everyone in between", this film has fun with itself, makes fun of Hollywood, of the rebel that isn't one, of our view of minorities and in the end of itself. TS has poured it all on the screen for everyone to see. In the end, this is art, it is what you make of it, but unlike Cronenberg's "The End of Violence" or Vincent Gallo's "Brown Bunny", DOMINO is fun, entertaining, well acted, a roller-coaster ride that doesn't take itself serious, just like the society that it is mirroring. I salute Tony Scott. Interesting main stream cinema is not dead, and boy, can it be visually stunning and f****** funny!!
Domino is a great ride! Forget the naysayers who can't appreciate a unique style that supports its story and characters. (by the-lyons-dendotcom)
I totally dug this movie! Contrary to some comments here there is a plot, it's just not revealed linearly, not every movie should be straight forward and have big global issues on its mind and I'm cool with that.DOMINO drips with style. The style is running off the screen it's so heavy. Definitely if you couldn't handle "Man on Fire" for this reason stay away from Domino, it's Man on Fire x 2 for style and personally I loved MOF too . And the style that director Tony Scott has been working on and perfecting FOR THIS MOVIE fit the material perfectly. Not every <more>
movie can look and flow the same way, and frankly as a filmmaker myself I totally support the director's vision here and his attempt to shake-up the mainstream by-the-books style a bit.You can't handle the style of Domino, good, go watch just about anything else available out there because 90% of it's gonna be an A to B type movie with lingering shots that you can feel comfortable in. Me though, I can appreciate when something different comes out visually that fits in the world the filmmaker is creating. It's taking cinematic risks in the mainstream, you gotta appreciate that! Keira Knightley does an amazing job here! The movie is on her shoulders, she doesn't once seem like a weak little girlie, from the get-go I believed in her character, no questions asked. Personally I was already a fan, now I'm totally hooked, the Brit has talent - I hear too she may get an Oscar nod for "Pride & Prejudice"... Rourke continues his comeback streak, nice job. Ramirez, the cast's newcomer was entertaining as well and I enjoy the subtle moments of lust and torture b/w him and Domino.Call me crazy but I had a blast with this movie! It was one of those movies you can actually call a "ride" and mean it. It doesn't pretend to be something it's not, if you liked the remix-style trailers you're gonna enjoy the movie.P.S. - the real Domino Harvey was on the set during some of the filming and apparently was happy with her translation to screen. If you watch the end credits she appears after Keira and she also did the dialogue in the "Heads you live, tails you die" song...
Domino is based on the true story of Domino Harvey a model turned bounty hunter. The movie can be a little confusing to follow if you try to do other things while watching it. It's nice to see that the creators of this film made Domino out to be a strong and beautiful women. Too often in movies females have to either be beautiful or strong not both. I feel that anyone could watch this film and enjoy it. The women have this kind of positive image of a woman to watch as she takes over a man dominated world. The men have the chance to see a hot girl kick ass in awesome fighting scenes. This <more>
is a great movie that I would recommend to anyone.
Okay, I'll admit it. i first took interest in the movie because of Keira. but then i saw it, it's pretty good. yes, there is unnecessary narration but the real Domino Harvey's life was confusing so the narration helps. i think it's a really good movie. Keira Knightley can carry tough as well as feminine. even though i can admit the really Domino would never give lap dances to distract the "bad guy". of course there is the fact that she saw an ad for bounty hunting and just decided to take it up but that is what really happened. i applaud the actors for making the <more>
best of a strangely written script. did i like Domino? i a sneaky way, yes! it might be maddening but it's alive. besides it contains the line "I'll never tell you what it all meant". As if anyone could.
If you go to this movie expecting something it isn't, you will be disappointed, as with any movie. This movie contains what Hemmingway described as the "iceberg effect". On the surface, its simply a cache of random movie clips smashed together to make a movie. If this would be written in a book, it would be a short story, because the action in the movie is very fast paced, and unless you actually try to catch it, the reasoning behind the plot along with some subtle foreshadowing can very well pass you by. Definitely a movie you will have to see twice in order to fully <more>
appreciate. Experimental Cinematography barely describes this movie. The camera-work and post production add much to the overall flavour of the film, making it quite artistic at some points and open to interpretation at others something to be desired in American movies as of late . Although, at some parts it may get a little raunchy, gruesome and too heavy for some audiences, the movie never becomes completely unrealistic. The only aspect of the movie that I would write off as "needs improvement" is the soundtrack selection. No movie is ever good without a fitting soundtrack, and although the soundtrack is quite fitting, the opening is a little too long, and the other rap songs in the film really could have been replaced with something more appropriate heavy, grungy rock or psychedelic electronica would have made this film a real trip . The flooding of imagery and dynamic... color palettes adds another "artistic" aspect to it, also combined with the events that happen throughout the film, this is not a movie you can miss any part of and still understand. However, that also makes it much more of a desirable film to watch, and not one you'll quickly get bored of. 8.5/10
If you find yourself in need of an escape, something that will hold your attention for two hours and allow you to be lost in another world, Domino will satisfy that need. This is entertainment, after all! The plot keeps your brain in motion - one of those movies like Usual Suspects where you want to see it a second time to figure it all out. I wondered about Domino Harvey herself, how her life became of interest to Hollywood. As for the acting, lots of celebrity appearances not shown in the trailers. And any actor that makes me forget who they are has done their job well. Not once did I <more>
think of Kiera in a soccer uniform or pirate costume. And granted, Mickey Rourke plays Mickey Rourke well and often, but here, despite the violence, he shows signs of being capable of caring for other people.
On the outside, "Domino" looks like yet another example of Tony Scott flexing his artistic muscle through his trademark cinematic style. The director is known for his forays into adrenal, disorienting surrealism, the most recent example of this being 2004's "Man on Fire." Scott has a flair for quick-cuts, whimsical superimposed titles and moody cross-processing that, if not apparent in his last feature, is fully exposed in "Domino." Some will say these techniques crowd out the story and distract from a plot that is complicated enough already. And that <more>
might've been true in another film. But critics have underestimated Scott.In "Domino," the true significance of the story rests within Scott's seemingly problematic, electric visuals. The weight of Scott's storytelling in this film is immense but creatively camouflaged behind a sexed-up facade. In reality, the late Domino Harvey, was, and still is, just as complicated a riddle, waiting to be solved. It makes sense, then, that any film portraying Harvey would follow suit. "Domino" is based, "sort of," on Harvey's wild days as a Los Angeles bounty hunter. The film, narrated by Domino Keira Knightley , shows flashbacks of her life and offbeat career. Laurence Harvey, Domino's movie star father, dies and her mother decides to leave England for California, taking her young daughter with her. In Los Angeles, Domino grows up an outsider, gets kicked out of schools and tries modeling but quickly tires of it. Finally the ex-model, who says she's been practicing violence since age 12, decides to make a career out of bounty hunting.In due course, the professionals, Ed and Choco Mickey Roarke and Edgar Ramirez take a chance on the tough-as-nails rookie and soon the three become inseparable. They bust fugitives, living life on the fringe, until Domino's story reaches Hollywood TV execs, who send cameras to trail her as part of an ill-advised reality show named, "Bounty Squad."Naturally, the bounty hunters' lives are later thrown into further chaos when a job gets botched by the conflicting agendas of their bail bondsman boss, the FBI, the mob and four anonymous crooks. The twists and turns lead to a dramatic denouement in Las Vegas - a bloodbath, which takes place at the top of the Stratosphere Hotel, amid the roar of circling FBI helicopters in true Tony Scott fashion .The film is unapologetically divergent from the truth; many details are completely fictional. Despite these trespasses, however, "Domino" does what it is supposed to do; it gets the most important things right The facts are ultimately irrelevant because Harvey's distinctive spirit is represented.In the images flickering frenetically across the screen, Scott succeeds in evoking the sense of a powerful yet fragile existence one that is undoubtedly true to life. His stock double exposures and psychedelic colors aren't gratuitous here; Scott uses them to convey the dangerous and transient nature of Harvey's life in a way that seems both hyper-splashy and acutely insightful. It's not often that one can fulfill the commercial requisite at the same time as being attentive to character, but Scott pulls it off.Domino states in the film, as she also stated in life, that she finds the Hollywood fishbowl, the "'90210' world," abhorrent. So how does this mesh with the glittering fakery Scott displays? The answer is: perfectly. Though "Domino" is highly exemplary of Tinseltown's bombastic commercialization, this works in the film's favor because "Domino" is, in many ways, a deliberate swipe at the entertainment industry a self-reflexive film masquerading as a popcorn action flick, which satirizes LA's charlatans in a way Harvey probably would've greatly appreciated.During their introductions, Ed, lead bounty hunter, asks Domino what her full name is, to which she replies, "Just Domino." At the end of the film, cast credits flash on screen sans identifying surnames. You don't have to be a genius to understand the meaning of this. We all know who Keira Knightley is from our tabloid magazines, but "Keira" is an unknown, just as Domino was a stranger to anyone who knew her famous father.By the end of "Domino," the only people who seem real are the bounty hunters. Though Domino and her crew are ruthless, antisocial, gun-toters, they are infinitely more likable than the nymphomaniac entertainment lawyers, the nameless FBI agents and the smarmy television actors who populate the rest of the film. These are people who live far more nauseating existences. They are the people whose messes Domino cleans up.Keira Knightley, excellently cast in the lead role, simultaneously embodies Harvey's toughness along with the gravitas and quiet desolation of a woman who had designs on freedom but found herself still operating both inside the intrigues of a corrupt society, as well as inside a prison of her own making a drug addiction. This part of her life isn't fully explored in the film and many of her motivations are left a mystery, communicated instead through some bizarre flourishes of 'Richard Kelly theology.' However, "Domino" preserves Harvey's mysticism and, in some ways, this is the best form of memorialization. The fictional Domino taunts the audience with the line, "I'll never tell you what it all meant." It's possible that these words may have come directly from the lady herself.Copyright c 2005 by Lauren Simpson
