"The edges of silence"

Poet Ron Silliman, blogging about 3 Iron (this week's SFC offering) back in December:

So often I've seen American movies in which tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent on everything except – it would seem – paying for a writer. 3-Iron is exquisitely plotted & choreographed – even its use of the edges of silence is well-written, as with a scene in an interrogation room at a police station in which the taciturn nature of the hero leads to a beating. The film's use of cuts is such that – early on in particular – it's not clear whether or not the characters are speaking, just not in the scenes on camera, any more than it is whether or not their relationship is carnal or platonic

3-Iron was absolutely amazing and beautiful. I was waiting for SFC to show it so I could see it again. I'll be there :)
