The Best of the Bonds!
|Shirley Eaton being painted gold (David Hurn).|
If you had to pick out one thing about this film, it is that it is visually striking. In my humble opinion, that is what makes a great film - it is a visual medium, after all. You need a variety of colorful, dramatic scenes, or mundane scenes made exciting by the story. Here, we have the exotic - Fort Knox - and the mundane - a golf course, a car crusher - each used in such a way as to provide the variety and intrigue that makes for a visual feast.
