A Beautiful Film! Pacino Shines!
Inspired by the true story of folk singer Steve Tilston, ‘Danny Collins’ is A Beautiful Film, that offers great emotional depth! And Al Pacino shines in the title role, proving once again that he’s among the greatest we’ve ever had!
‘Danny Collins’ Synopsis: An aging rock star decides to change his life when he discovers a 40-year-old letter written to him by John Lennon.
‘Danny Collins’ is at heart, a sensitive father & son story, that’s emotionally charged. I was moved & overwhelmed by Danny Collins’s journey, not only with his son, but also with his friends, his profession & himself. Its a fascinating character, that’s been bought to life, with dexterity.
Dan Fogelman’s Screenplay is top-class. Its emotional & also humorous. Fogelman’s Direction, on the other-hand, is simple, yet effective. Cinematography is good. Editing is consistently crisp. Costume Design is fine. Music by Ryan Adams & Theodore Shapiro is wonderful.
Performance-Wise: Pacino is extraordinary as Danny Collins. He sinks his teeth into the part & brings it out with flying colors. Annette Bening is sweet. Bobby Cannavale is in fine form, as well. Jennifer Garner is subdued, while The Great Christopher Plummer is impeccable in his brief bit.
On the whole, ‘Danny Collins’ is a winner all the way! Among the best films from 2015 yet!
I mildly enjoyed it.
First of all, I have to start by saying it felt really weird to see a super saying the movie was “sort of based on a true story”. Sorry, but it is either based on true events or it’s not. I guess it’s only a trick to catch people’s attention a little more
The movie was OK, but it won’t leave a long lasting impression. As for Al Pacino, the guy is an excellent actor, but for him to play a musician on the brink of retirement and to force him to show his singing skills was probably a bit of a mistake. He is such an awful singer that you wonder if the guy is singing or having a heart attack. Either way, it makes you question why they chose him and not someone else for the role I suppose Al Pacino is still Al Pacino.
Also, I feel that you never really get the point of the Lennon letter, which is supposed to be central to this movie (Probably the reason why they made a movie only “mildly based” on true events). They had to add a lot of substance to this letter story to turn it into a movie. You could say it is the eye opener that makes Pacino reach out for his son and try to change his empty life around before it’s too late. But that in itself makes the letter seem unimportant. Basically, you sense that the same story could have been told without the letter.
All in all, a decent movie but I really wonder how long it will stuck to your mind, I give it half a day.
