Odd Freudian evaluation with a little revenge mixed in.
I found it interesting that the first review I noticed of this movie on the IMDb claimed in the subject line that “You’ll sleep at this movie,” because I rented it last night and watched it at my brother’s house, and he was literally asleep within minutes. His lack of consciousness, however, probably can’t be chalked up to the almost intolerable slowness of this movie because I don’t think he made it past the opening credits. I managed to stay awake fairly well, despite the routine story presented in the film and the almost complete lack of any action. It has to be among the most drab thrillers ever made.
Clive Owen, probably now known mostly as King Arthur in the also disappointing King Arthur, plays Will, the guy who has Returned From Retirement to avenge the death of his brother, Davey, which was a suicide but which Will believes he was driven to commit. Davey is played by Jonathan Rhys-Meyers (not to be confused with John Rhys-Davies) in the brief amount of screen time that he spends alive, and for most of the rest of the movie Will Takes Matters Into His Own Hands to investigate what caused his brother’s suicide.
The biggest problem with the movie is not that it’s anticlimactic or even that it is such an overall cliché, the problem is that Owen snoozes though the movie in a stolid, half-lidded performance, almost like he’s trying to stay awake. Kind of like Sylvester Stallone in Copland. There are times when he is confronted with what must have been extremely painful possibilities about what most likely occurred in the last hours of his brother’s life, and he is completely expressionless.
This is a nitpicky complaint, I guess, but it seems to me that an ex-gangster would have registered some kind of rage while learning about how his brother was driven to sit in a bathtub for 12 hours and then cut his throat. Here’s an example: in one scene Will is talking to the doctor who performed the autopsy, and he is told that there is evidence that his brother was raped, as well as a disturbing possibility that he may have involuntarily ejaculated, can I say that here? Anyway, Will stares blankly at the doctor during the explanation, then when the doctor stops talking he looks at him and says, “What are you talking about?” What, was he not paying attention?
Maybe it’s just bad screen writing or maybe the way the character was written just didn’t flow with me, but whatever the case, the rest of the movie is a slow plod through revenge movie clichés that never even tries to do anything new. The movie goes into great detail about the possibilities of the circumstances surrounding Davey’s rape and the hours that followed, but it pays more attention to the possibilities of its psychological impact on him than it does to developing any momentum or creating interesting characters. As a standard revenge film, it at least adds depth to the meaning of the rape itself, but the rest of the movie suffers because of it. It would almost make a better educational film than a thriller.
Dark Revenge Film Not For Everyone
I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead is a crime film directed by Mike Hodges that is from a screenplay written by Trevor Preston. The movie features a man that return to their former hometowns to investigate the death of a brother that has died under mysterious circumstances and plot a revenge to those who were responsible.It stars Clive Owen,Jonathan Rhys- Meyers,Malcolm McDowell and Charlotte Rampling.
Will Graham is a former London gangster who moved out to the country after suffering a breakdown of some sort. He works clearing forests, and lives out of his van, until he loses his job over a lack of proper documentation. Meanwhile, Will’s younger brother, Davey, is enjoying his life as a womanizing man about town, and dabbling in drug dealing, until one night, when an older man, Boad has him followed and brutally assaults him. The traumatized Davey returns home and takes his own life. Will, uncertain as to where to go, finds himself drawn back to London, where he learns of Davey’s death from Mrs. Barz, his landlady. Will investigates what happened that night with his old friend, Mickser. As Will tries to piece together what happened, he goes to visit Helen, his former lover, who is less than thrilled to see him after he abandoned her years earlier and eventually cut off all contact. The current neighborhood crime boss,Turner, knows what Will is capable of, and sees him as a threat. Eventually, Will uncovers the truth, and is faced with the unpleasant prospect of avenging Davey’s death.
This is another type of revenge film for it presents dark themes that might not be suitable to everyone.I may not expect everyone to like this film.But nevertheless,one cannot help but credit the cast for a wonderful performance particularly Owen and Rampling.Overall,it is a good, tight, well-made piece of filmmaking for it is a true representation of gangster movies that is unnerving that is yet completely sure of every step it takes.
