Director: James Gray
Cast: Charlie Hunnam , Robert Pattinson , Tom Holland , Sienna Miller , Angus Macfadyen
Plot: The Lost City of Z tells the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett, who journeys into the Amazon at the dawn of the 20th century and discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization that may have once inhabited the region. Despite being ridiculed by the scientific establishment who regard indigenous populations as "savages," the determined Fawcett - supported by his devoted wife, son and aide de camp returns time and again to his beloved jungle in an attempt to prove his case, culminating in his mysterious disappearance in 1925.


My Movie Review: The movie is painful to watch tested my patience such a long long journey. The Lost City Of Z is dark engrossing story to unexplored territories of the Old Amazon Jungle. Didn't plan to see but caught my interest felt the strength of the human spirit in both Fawcett for trying to prove what he believe in and His Wife for having courage to wait for the longest time. James Gray take maybe a hit for some but it's a missed opportunity showing dense poor clarity and making the movie worst doesn't justify the case make me wish to end as soon as possible.

More Description: The role of Percy Fawcett was originally supposed to be played by Brad Pitt. However after discussions, both Brad and the director felt the role should be played by a British actor. This allowed Brad Pitt the opportunity to take the lead role in World War Z while they went on to sign Benedict Cumberbatch. Benedict was all set to go when his wife became pregnant and preferred not to give birth in the middle of the Amazon. This eventually led them to sign on with Charlie Hunnam. Percy Fawcett ones said that: If we may find a city, where one was considered impossible to exist, it may well write a whole new chapter in the human history.
