I rated Gold (2016) 7/10 #IMDb

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1800302

MM plays Kenny Wells a mining company guy with gold fever. His well-publicised weight gain would be more impressive were it not for his hyper-lordotic spine in any scene the belly is needed. I envy his good looks in this film too.

Nitpicking aside, this is a surprisingly low-key movie that tells the tale of avarice, hubris, and nemesis. Sort of.

There are some great down-at-heel scenes and some great tropical suffering.

Oddly it’s a film where almost no one seems to really win. And I liked that.

In the end you’re left wondering who was in on it.

MM could do a Hunter S Thompson to rival Johnny Depp’s based on his performance here.

I go to the movies now and again. I take a few photos here and there and play with them a bit in Adobe Lightroom.
