Legendary film maker Jack Hussar inspires awe and love in his fans, but will his son, also a film maker ever live up to his father’s reputation.
Director Bernard Rose teams up with Danny Huston for their third Tolstoy adaptation following Ivans XTC(2003) and The Kreutzer Sonata(2008) in the indie comedy drama: Two Jacks. Based on the short story of The Two Hussars, it is the tale of . Legendary film director Jack Hussar returns to Hollywood after a long absence looking to finance for his next film. He drinks freely, attends glamorous parties, romances beautiful Diana and wins his financing in a poker game. Years later, his son arrives in Hollywood to make his directorial debut, and it is clear that he aspires to live up to his father’s reputation.
Rose chooses Hollywood as the backdrop for this study of what goes into creating an impression. And how apt.Danny Huston gives a rousing performance as the chain smoking, self absorbed, washed up director whose legend and persona are more revered than his actual talent. Jack Huston’s portrayal of the Jack Hussar Jr. is a subtle, nuanced presentation of youthful bravado and insecurity. Unlike Joe Wright’s recent grandiose, cinematic adaptation of Anna Karenina (2012), Two Jacks stays true to Rose’s ‘high art/ low-fi’ style, fast camera work and quick edits are reminiscent of European cinema and the French New Wave. Rose’s direction constantly points to the characters and keeps you engaged. Don’t get me wrong, there is plenty to look at; the costumes designed by Julia Clancey are spectacular, the photography is quirky and captivating. The performances by a stellar cast that also boasts Jacqueline Bisset as the old Diana and Richard Portnow as Lorenzo, the mafiaso looking producer.
This is Rose’s fourth film of his Tolstoy series and arguably the best. It is not just the alternative, indie Tolstoy adaptation, it is by far the most interesting, intelligent and entertaining. Well worth a watch.
I’m sorry but I’m unaware of Tolstoy’s stories. This movie was told to be an adaptation of one of his story. Expected some kind of drama, adventure, emotions, twists. But instead got a really boring experience. Had to fast forward a lot of areas as many portions were easily predictable. Maybe it had many layers of intricate details but to a casual viewer like me it was all the more uninteresting. Screenplay of contrasting the colors used for Sr and Jr was good.
Final word : It’s not a movie of entertainment. Maybe a movie of artistic value. After watching the whole movie, I liked only one person. And it was Guy Burnet.
