# <center>Opinion</center>

Basically in the film we see the story of how four young university students, Warren, Spencer, Eric and Chas, begin to plan the theft of an extremely valuable edition of John James Audubon's The Birds of America and other rare books, which are found in the Transylvania University library's. On the one hand, it shows the actors interpreting the events, and on the other, it shows people in real life narrating their experience from their point of view, sometimes even the director of the film plays with what the narrators say and fuses fiction with reality.

The film has a good rhythm, Bart Layton, the director, does a very good job from the technical point of view, making the experience of the narrated story much better than it would be otherwise. The script written by Layton also was balanced, tries to convey the depth that is required but keeping everything simple and uncomplicated, making the story light and fun.

The performances are really very good, especially Evan Peters, who plays a young rebel, and who becomes the leader and main driver of the plan. Barry Keoghan also does a good job, plays a young artist who despite not having a great motivation to carry out the crime, is attracted by his own idea. Blake Jenner, on the other hand, does an acceptable job, his character is someone trained for success, raised by his father to be an entrepreneur, sees in the theft of the library a business opportunity. Finally, Jared Abrahamson, who does an acceptable job as well, is in charge of interpreting a young university student who is alone and bored, and who evidently feels that the university classes are no challenge for him, so he is called by the character interpreted by Evan Peters to help organize the plan.

The film is maintained at a level between regular and good, something that is true is that I was entertained all the time, I was not bored, and I think that is mainly because the director is responsible for the story remains dynamic.

I admire your discipline to review the movies you watch. After all, you do something valuable during watching as well and not only consuming it but also thinking about it. I sometimes had a guilty feeling when I "just" watched movies as it's often said is a waste of time. 

Do you notice a change since you also write about the movies compared to a time when you only watched them?

Well, I suppose there are movies that are a waste of time, because they are films made to increase TV programming or to launder money. However, there are the other films, which are worthwhile, and I think that seeing them is not a waste of time, because when you do it, you listen and see what a group of people tries to transmit to you, and if that is a waste of time, then listen to what other people have to say too.

>Do you notice a change since you also write about the movies compared to a time when you only watched them?

mmm I do not know, I think not, I always do an analysis of what I saw, even when I do not review it. However, I think that I learn new things when writing reviews because I increase the perception that I have about the details.

Thanks for reading and commenting.

That's a really good thing, isn't it, that you increased your perception about details. It's a nice effect when training something in particular on a regular basis. 

Have a lovely day!
