The blind leading the blind.
Jennifer 8 is written and directed by Bruce Robinson. It stars Andy Garcia, Uma Thurman, John Malkovich, Lance Henriksen, Kathy Baker and Graham Beckel. Music is by Christopher Young and cinematography by Conrad Hall.
The small town of Eureka and John Berlin (Garcia) is the new cop in the precinct. When a severed hand is found at the local dump it leads Berlin to believe a serial killer is at work. One who has a penchant for blind girls.
The problems quickly mounted up for Jennifer 8, it flopped big in America and went straight to home format release in the UK. Problems back stage got so bad that Bruce Robinson quit Hollywood and never made another film for 19 years! In spite of these facts, it’s not the monstrosity it was originally painted as back on its “limited” release.
It’s a frustrating film in many ways because it promises so much. There’s bags of moody atmospherics wrung out by Conrad Hall’s superb photography, where he filters most things via minimal lighting. Much of the play unfolds in ominous surroundings, where dialogue exchanges are either hushed or laced with harried fervour, and the writing is actually quite smart as it blends psycho thriller staples with strong characterisations that are in turn boosted by committed acting performances. Yet these things can’t compensate for the too long run time, a rushed ending and some awkward tonal shifts that often take you out of the required mood. The rushed ending is particularly galling, after asking the audience to stay with the pic for two hours, it’s not unreasonable to expect a good long and dramatic finale, sadly that’s not the case.
Fans of neo-noir type visuals have some interest here, as does anyone who likes the type of serial killer movies that dominated the late 80s and early 90s before Fincher’s Seven raised the bar. 6/10
The revie written by John Card is totally trash. This is not a “frustrating” film in any way and doesn’t have a “rushed” ending neither. The ending lasts something like 20 minutes.
This movie is worth more than just 6 points.
A very under-rated movie
This is one of those movies that I still pull out every once in a while and just pop in. It’s absolutely entertaining, with great performances from pretty much everybody, but especially Andy Garcia and Lance Henrikson.
It plays out like a good mystery/thriller should: Frustrating twists and turns, brooding atmosphere and music, and layer after layer of clues that you know are building to a big time climax. I really can’t find anything to criticize about this film and I’m surprised it’s IMDB rating isn’t higher.
If you haven’t seen it, you’ll be doing yourself a favor by bypassing the new releases for just one night at blockbuster, and picking this one up.
serial killer suspense mystery genres
why did this movie get only a 6.2 rating on IMDb? are people dumb? this movie has great stars( Thurman, Garcia, henriksen & a great cameo by malkovich( he is so good that i wanted to put my hand thru my flatscreen & just choke him). this movies also got great winter scenes and what a great musical score. this movie definitely is gonna get multiple viewings from me. i consider myself a huge fan of movies & will just about watch anything, but…..people…this is a nice little ” diamond in the rough “. this is in my top 10-15 serial killer, suspense, thriller movies. i think most people will like this movie if they try it. oh btw….is Andy Garcia a Al Pacino clone or what..LOL. seriously if u like a well-made movie, give this one a try
