Prediction: There won't be a better American movie this year than Noam Murro/Zack Snyder's visionary operaticism in 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE--the sword-thrust of politics powered by muscle forged in tragedy. It's the most delirious and intense sequel narrative since INFERNAL AFFAIRS III and the deepest sequel enrichment since THE GODFATHER PART II and III.
One of my many choice lines: "You fight harder than you fuck." If you value your manhood, you won't miss 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE. Its densely layered narrative--identifying the prime motivations of its epic characters--gives intensity to operatically rendered political-military maneuvers. It's a great amazing astounding staggering film.
