The Lost City of Z – 5

Supposedly based on a novel, The Lost City of Z seemed more likely to have been based on a comic book. The lack of sophistication and subtlety in plot and acting was on a par with Brad Pitt’s performances in, inter alia Inglorious Basterds and, more recently, Allied. Imagine my lack of surprise, then, when the credits rolled and I saw that the movie’s producer was…Brad Pitt. Chris Hunnam, in the lead role, seemed to have gotten the part because of his physical resemblance to…Brad Pitt. Sienna Miller stood out among the cardboard characters, but her role was an anachronistic cliche. Add one more notch to the string of movies “based upon a true story” that you wouldn’t believe if they’d made it up.
