Film Crit Hulk explains why Tom Hooper's 'Les Misérables' fell flat

Les Miserables, jean valjean

Film Crit Hulk, the lovable, surprisingly level-headed movie critic, has written a lengthy, thoughtful review on Tom Hooper's Les Misérables. As is often the case, Hulk's review is much more than a review — it's an educational discussion on the basics of film. Hulk delves into the fundamentals of cinematography in an engaging, informative manner, and explains why Hooper's latest film failed to evoke the emotions that the story and performances should have. Even if you haven't seen Les Misérables yet, Hulk's latest article is a thought-provoking look at the craft behind cinema that explains how and why great filmmakers like Kubrick, De Palma, and Hitchcock created some of their most iconic shots.
