Thomas Jane’s accent might be pretty hard to understand, and the story is just a just a plot you’ve already seen put through the Stephen King’s _Children of the Corn_ wringer, but that doesn’t stop 1922 from being another Stephen King adaptation we can put in 2017’s “Good” column, alongside _It_ and _Gerald’s Game_ (and decidedly not alongside _The Dark Tower_).
_Final rating:★★★ – I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
***There’s always another way than murder***
Two members of a corn-farming family in 1922 Nebraska commit a crime and get away with it, but do they really? Thomas Jane and Molly Parker play the parents while Dylan Schmid is on hand as the son, who’s about 15.
Released in 2017, “1922” is a haunting crime drama/period piece with elements of horror, unsurprisingly based on a Stephen King story of the same name. The confined farm location, tone and even genre are akin to films like “The Messengers” (2007), “Husk” (2011) and “Signs” (2002). There’s also a nod to “Bonnie and Clyde” (1967).
Thomas Jane should’ve gotten an award for his performance, as he literally disappears in the role and is unrecognizable. His farm hick accent is so thick I strongly recommend using the subtitles.
The themes revolve around disloyalty, the danger of allowing hostility (hatred) to fester, the abuse of authority/manipulation and the power of conscience.
The film runs 1 hour, 42 minutes and was shot, believe it or not, in Western Australia. Additional cast: Kaitlyn Bernard appears as the kid’s neighbor girlfriend and Neal McDonough her father.
Incredible movie. Gotta read the book ASAP!
I loved it from start to end. Thomas Jane gives another excellent performance!
The plot is thrilling and makes you want to keep watching even if it’s a slow-paced film. It reminded me a lot of old school horror/suspense films from the 80’s. The ones that didn’t depend on jump-scares or stupid demonic creatures to make the whole movie.
Don’t listen to those few people arguing the film was boring because it was slow. Maybe they’re used to jump-scares and serial killers. This is a very simple but deep plot that is worth seeing.
That accent though
I thought it was fantastic and am kind of surprised by the relatively low rating. But, and this is probably the big one, I love slow, plodding, tension building plots and this one delivered on that front, for me at least. I did have to turn on the sub-titles though because I couldn’t understand half of what Thomas Jane was saying, but I didn’t live in Kansas (or wherever it was supposed to take place) in the 1920s so who am I to judge. I also loved Molly’s portrayal of the strident, bored, ambitious housewife although I almost sympathised with Wilfred for her single-minded desire to leave, and the threat to take everything away from him. Almost. In the end it was an excellent cinematic portrayal of what happens when a moral dilemma results in the wrong avenue of choice.
