I returned to Buenos Aires and, as all the people I met know, I watched GOLDENEYE on January 31st, 1998. I was fascinated, and that day begun the passion that catched me all these years.
TOMORROW NEVER DIES premiered in Argentina on January 15th, 1998. I talked to my dad to go and watch the film. I can’t exactly remember the exact date, but surely it should have been one or two weeks after the premiere. Dad and I went to the now unexistant Metro cinema at the famous 9 de Julio Avenue (the widest avenue in the world)… and please don’t ask me my experience watching the film because I don’t remember anything except of the pre-credits sequence, the villain Elliott Carver, and the guy falling into the newspaper printer.
Let me tell you I strongly disagree with the last point, because to me Carver, brilliantly played by Johnatan Pryce - famous for portraying Juan Domingo Perón in 1996’s EVITA – was the last great mastermind we’ve had in the Bond series. Maybe he isn’t a physical menace to 007, but he has something Bond villains today lack of: charisma.
Well, just some of my toughts about TOMORROW NEVER DIES. Follow this blog for some other articles regarding the film that Dean and I will be posting in the following months.
