Terse Movie Review – Bronson, dir. by Nicolas Winding Refn

It’s not usual for me to comment on the DVD of a film in the stead of reviewing the film, but for Bronson, which is a pretty good movie, carried by a magnetic and awe-inspiring performance by Tom Hardy, a philosophical point on DVD extras seems appropriate.

It has always baffled my why so films shot in English but with a foreign accent — British, Australian, etc. — show up in America without English subtitles.  Just because we’re speaking the same basic language doesn’t mean that language is easy to understand when spoken with a different accent.  See. e.g., Bronson.
