Disappointment from a previously promising director
Very disappointing. After the amazing “Pusher” i was expecting great things from Nicholas Winding Refn, but this was a huge letdown. It was just very sad to see a guy who started out with such a strong distinctive cinematic voice churn out something so completely unremarkable. Refn sadly seems to lack any sense of personal style, as this film bares absolutely no stylistic similarity to his debut film. It could have been a completely different filmmaker from what i could tell. Sadder still is that this was Hubert Selby Jr.’s last project before his death. Why waste his talents on this empty piece of film-making? To it’s credit, it was fairly well made, but it was all atmosphere and style and absolutely no substance whatsoever. This had potential to be a good psychological puzzle in the David Lynch/”Demonlover” mode, but ultimately failed on almost every level. It somehow managed to be both maddeningly straight-forward and simplistic, and illogical and unfulfilled at the same time. I have absolutely no problem with incoherence, in fact i would have enjoyed this film considerable more had it been more so, but this just plain didn’t make sense and left me confused, but at the same time was just far too simple and unchallenging. Or maybe i just didn’t get it at all. I don’t know, but either way i found it to be a deeply unsatisfying viewing experience.
Euro trash…or is it Turturro-trash?
I was drawn into this movie because of the moody atmosphere and the desire to see John Turturro’s character resolve his personal mystery. He’s a very interesting actor to watch because he’s a bit off-beat and he knows how to use his face to reflect a wide range of emotions. (Watch him, for instance, in the scene where he views tapes of his wife’s murder over and over.) As further elements were added to the film (the cop conspiracy) I thought, “OK, we’re going to find out that the mystery is a really bigger thing than just a local accident.” Although the idea of guys from Montana chasing a bad cop in Wisconsin seems a little far-fetched. But then the movie goes haywire and the director chickens out of a resolution with a lot of arty shots underscored by Brian Eno’s typical hash of drones and blurps.
I was not surprised to see at the end that this was a movie produced by a young European director, because there’s a plague of them out there making senseless films (La Moustache, Saint-Ange, Cache, etc.) but hiding behind their pose as “auteurs.” Maybe “hauteur” would be a more appropriate word. Directors who are funded by loads of EU organizations and don’t have to rely on the free market dump out tons of garbage like this for the world to wonder at. If they had to compete in a Hollywood-style studio system they would be gone in a flash.
Whatever you do, don’t bother with this film. Like the French films I mentioned, the first hour leads you to believe that it might be worth watching. But it’s not.
