Review: its not altogether fun. i think most who have seen it would agree...but i think its a masterful piece of storytelling. and kudos to tommy lee jones for not giving in an inch to clichés...there was so much that surprised me in this film...the reactions that i always try to guess before they happen...the lines that come out of the actors mouths... sure i guessed SOME of the times in this film...but im not usually as surprised by dialogue/character choices as i was here... it made it all so much more realistic for me, rather than watching characters who are mouthing lines of people whove seen too many bad movies and not met or done enough interesting people or things, respectively... there was one major turn in the plot towards the end that was unexpected. but in a way that i felt was also, given what wed seen of this character already, not really in line with who they seemed to be... i know it was based on a book. and all thats in a book can rarely be shown in a two hour film...so im thinking that whatever changes this character had to go through to get from point A to point B might have been left out. Otherwise it didnt really make much sense/needed to make MORE sense than it did...at least for me...i, of course, dont want to be more specific b/c then it would surely be a spoiler. i dont know what reviewer could ever think that i would want to know an important piece of information before ive seen a film... the film was beautiful to look at...the acting was extremely good. i expect Oscar nominations for swank and jones. maybe also director AND , depending on the field, maybe best picture. lets call it a dark horse... ;-)since i know a lot of people who read these might not get around to reading a lot of the comments made by, lets say, the director, id like to leave you all with these words from tommy lee jones: (on how he learned to direct) Ive worked with more than 50 directors and Ive paid attention since day one. Thats pretty much been my education, apart from studying art history and shooting with my own cameras. Ive seen 50 different sets of mistakes and 50 different ways of achieving. You just leave the bad part out.i wasnt crazy about another of joness movies--the three burials-- but this one does what he says above to the frame...if i did just one thing in my life of this quality id feel it was a life worth having lived... you DO know whats happenin...DONT you, mr jones?
