Midnight Run under the midnight sun
Arctic Blue is as eccentric and loopy as I’d imagine such unique climate conditions make people behave up there. Indeed, instead of a straight up action adventure, they’ve gone for something a little more meandering and amusing, sort of like Midnight Run under the midnight sun. In a sea of direct to video flicks that Rutger Hauer has done, it’s tough to weed the gems from the turds, but this one is gold, especially if you’re a fan of him, as well as gorgeously photographed scenery. As Ben, he’s not quite hero, not quite antagonist, a wildman of a trapper who functions on instinct and has no use for the rule of law. When an altercation with a park ranger leads to murder at his own hand, Ben is set to be escorted to judgment by a local sheriff (Dylan Walsh). Walsh is green around the ears though, and Ben is determined to escape, aided by his familiarity with the land and climate, as well as his bawdy fellow trappers, who are hot on their trail. what follows is almost genre defying; it’s just this side of adventure, with the slightest hint of buddy comedy and even a few mournful notes to Ben’s backstory that give it that dramatic weight. I love an ambiguous character, one who makes real choices and has capacity for both compassion and viciousness in their spirit, seemingly free from the constriction of conventional plot development. Ben is his own man, and approaches both his environment and his fellow man on his own terms, which granted can lead to trouble, but is an endlessly attractive character trait to have. I think having grown up in such a rugged, untethered corner of the globe, people like Ben run on their own clock, and hum with the delirious atmosphere of such a far removed existence. The entire film has that going for it too, like everyone involved is running off of no sleep and whatever is in the water way up there in the north. A true undiscovered gem of a film, if you can find it anywhere.
Wonderful escapist material………….’Arctic Blue’ is a portal to Alaska!
Whenever I see this film, I always feel like tucking myself away in bed, wishing the weather outside would be Grey, windy, cold and rainy so as I could feel safe in my home and lazy. I’m not saying ‘Arctic Blue’ is mediocre – on the contrary…..
This is one of the few films I’ve seen where I feel completely relaxed. Even with the violence that fills it, this film has such a relaxing, gentle beauty about it – not to mention the exhilarating Alaskan scenery this film showcases.
Peter Masterson, the director, delivers an authentic feeling of isolation and paints a picture of the enormity of the location to the viewer. This is a good base for an original story – In an isolated town in the middle of nowhere, anything can happen….even murder! The atmosphere was built very well and you get a touch of what it would be like living there.
The cinematography was splendid. It constantly gave me the urge to want to be there – still tucked in bed though. The film painted such a brilliant picture of just how far the nearest town could be by utilizing the treacherous yet beautiful landscape.
The music was nothing special, although at times I could say it added well to the wilderness and action scenes well.
I couldn’t say much about the story either – also nothing special – although it is original. Nevertheless, it does hold your attention for all duration. The dazzling scenery adds most to the experience though.
Rutger Hauer was an excellent choice for the misunderstood individual – the same role he played masterfully in Blade Runner. His commanding presence always gives films great credibility. Here he plays a sad individual who feels he has nothing to lose and that nature is his home after losing his wife years earlier. It is for this reason he and a band of friends murder rival trappers on a hunting trip without remorse. Dylan walsh plays his role convincingly as an ecologist for an oil company who’s responsibility, being the only pilot in town, is to transport Rutger Hauer to the nearest town to be trialled for his crimes.
In general, I found the film quite entertaining – like a 1.5 hour portal to Alaska. And it is so relaxing and beautiful that you forget about its shortcomings and plot holes. It isn’t a classic, but in my books, a definitive escapist experience and a must for all the wilderness film fans out there.
