Better than expected
I was not expecting much from this film, but I didn’t know that much about it. All I knew was what I’d seen on the cover and read on the back, and I wasn’t too hopeful. But I was bored and had some time to kill and it was worth it. I just wanted a little background noise, but this was seriously intriguing. I couldn’t look away.
The actor in the lead role does a phenomenal job. I will have to check out more of his work. He should win an award or something! And I read this was a true story, so it makes it all the more intriguing! I will have to look it up.
What was the point?
I’m not sure exactly what this film wants us to learn about Michael Peterson or Charles Bronson. All I learned about him was that he is an extremely violent self absorbed sociopath who lives in a tragic deluded fantasy world. Nothing else was offered, no hidden depths revealed. In the end he was just a violent sadistic idiot.
The heavy handed stylisation of the film was overly self conscious and blatantly copied from Clockwork Orange amongst other films. There was a clumsy attempt to turn scenes of violence into artistic aesthetic moments by using Stanley Kubric’s method of showing them in slow motion with classical music playing in the background. The shear amount of extremely violent scenes grow painfully tedious. The way the film dealt with the hostage taking of Phil Danielson was offensive and totally disrespectful to Danielson himself who’s life was ruined by the experience. Danielson was shown as a foppish idiot who deserved everything he got from Bronson. In reality Danielson was held captive for over 40 hours and was made to walk around the prison like a dog and was told by Brosnson that he was going to die. Bronson apologised in court to Danielson and his family which Bronson’s supporters see as proof of the fundamental decency of the man.
I don’t buy into the Bronson supporter’s propaganda. Bronson is artistic they tell us. Yeah and so? I actually checked out his so called art online and it’s talentless childish rubbish. Even if it wasn’t I don’t see why that means he should be released. Perhaps his supporters should try being held hostage by him for 40 hours. Bronson is warm hearted and funny they tell us. Yeah, Bronson and every other psychopath. Warmhearted until they take a dislike to you and use that as a justification for stamping on your head.
I don’t see why this man should have had a film made about him, especially one that didn’t seem to have any point to it. Having seen the film I hope he stays where he is, locked up safe and sound.
