Spider-Man: Far From the Home of Jon Watts | Review
Peter Parker must become the new Iron Man, and Spider-Man: Far From Home ec says all the time.
Both on a direct level (enough to have seen the many trailers and promotional for knowing it) but most of all, and in a much more essential and sensationally evocative, the key is subliminal, with some music and winking to recreate the atmosphere of those movies and in those movies is not like the work of Jon Watts seems so aware of its small size, its tones from the teen comedy, its canons by trip movie so perfectly traced out in the three-act structure, to be able to act with pride in the shadow of the rubble of the Marvel Cinematic Universe post-Avengers: Endgame. Be small and intimate and much more interested in going out with the girls who save the universe from the armies of invading aliens in Far From Home becomes a source of pride, and this is already phenomenal for the way kevinfeigiano that have the Marvel Studios to switch from the epic to the teen movie.
The Avengers are dead, Tony Stark is dead, Watts uses that material as if it were mythology and sets up all the apparatus and film of his work to transform his young protagonist in the future of the MCU now that the past is no longer there: references, winks, and even (in the best scene of the film, the one that sums up the meaning, with a Jon Favreau glaring eyes veiled with tears say all there is to say) the use of a famous song of a famous scene from a famous film ... Spider-Man must learn to be the new Iron Man and this is the chapter of his life where he must take the next step.
The concept of power and responsibility that already at the time of the Civil War, the Marvel Studios had tried to work around in order not to fall into the error of the second reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man swag, events, and places in common, already seen in the first series directed by Sam Raimi, in Far From Home is translated on the theme of trust, which you can enjoy, but can also grant, rightly or wrongly.
The choice to play for much of the development of the protagonist because of the newcomer, Mysterio, Jake Gyllenhaal plays as if he was born to do it: obviously, Thanos aside, the best villain of the MCU are doomed to spend for the saga stand-alone Spider-Man, because after the excellent work done on the Vulture Michael Keaton Homecoming also Mysterio is able to speak of our society in a way, it's clear both sub-textual, offering keys to interpretation of meta-cinema on the strength of the illusion (read: the special effects) and on the desire that the public has to be tricked (read: escapismo) that knows a little bit of The Prestige is a bit of a George Méliès, moved from analog to digital.
There was a great blow to the scene in the previous Homecoming and Far From Home not even attempt the comparison (but you stay for the scenes post-credits, two and probably the best ever designed by Marvel Studios), there was a kiss became incredibly iconic in the first Spider-Man Sam Raimi, and once again Watts going in another territory, to ensure that the film reflects fully the characteristics of the main character (clumsy, shy, thoughtful, intimate) also in a moment in time that typically would have been portrayed with fanfare and double underlines.
But what really excels Far From Home, net of the courage shown – but also imposed by the editorial line of Marvel Studios – taking on the double objective to add in a fade, the Infinity Saga after the climax of Infinity War, and Endgame, and prepare the ground for the advent of the Phase 4 and beyond, it is the way in which he takes the baton dropped by Tony to deliver it to Peter.
It may seem like an exaggeration, but an exaggeration perfectly fell in the fantastic reality that is constructed by the MCU: the short-circuit is represented by the platonic philosophy is on the shoulders of Mysterio – one that puts doubt on every decision of Tony Stark – summarizing the need, intrinsic to the society (the public) has to believe the illusions (stories).
