The Lost City of Z closed at this year’s successful New York Film Festival.
James Gray’s film starring Charlie Hunnam, had its world premiere in New York. Cast also includes Sienna Miller, Robert Pattinson and Tom Holland, “Lost City of Z” centers on Lieutenant Colonel Percy Fawcett (Hunnam), an explorer who desperately for years tries to find a lost city in the wilds of the Amazon.
While the film falls short of impressive notions, it is to be admired for it’s tenacity and effort at trying to revive an old-school Hollywood vibe. Unfortunately, performances fall stiff as the wood they are adventuring in while looking for the lost city. Audiences will love the screen time factor of the beloved actors, but in general we worry that this film will not keep its legs once it steps in to the Amazon waters of awards season.
