Potentially this could have been the most interesting work from Anton Corbijn, as he is himself a well-known portrait photographer. The story is about Magnum photographer Dennis Stock (Pattison) convincing a reluctant upcoming James Dean (DeHaan) to follow him to make a series of portraits. As you might know, Magnum set new standards in photography and Stock in his famous series contributed to a completely different view on portrait photography of stars: natural setting, confrontational, honest and direct.
During the movie, a bond grows between the two, as Dean turns out to be an atypical Hollywood star ignoring the rules set out by his superiors resulting in several confrontations. Stock largely ignores his duties to his former wife and their child and becomes obsessed by Dean’s idiosyncrasy. The second part is the most interesting as it almost deconstructs Dean’s life and character: Dean comes from a farmland family of Quakers, likes local poets and is fond of his background and actually despises stardom. Stock is first able to shoot pictures in New York (you probably know the famous photograph) and in Indiana.
So what are the downsides: the pacing is too slow, the editing certainly not perfect and the most important trap: Corbijn as photographer is too much in love with the story, finding details relevant that are actually not that relevant. The question keeps popping up: Why does this matter? Life fails in a way as a mood piece, but is still a relatively good and stable character drama as the deconstruction works well.
Maybe both Pattison and DeHaan are too light to pull this off more convincing, but one role is certainly amazing: Ben Kingsley as Jack Warner is so spot-on you will be remembering the character despite the limited screen time.
Dane DeHaan is miscast
It’s always watchable to look into the lives of Hollywood legends so the subject matter of this movie makes one want to watch it through. Although the focus of this movie is James Dean’s visit home to Indiana and that isn’t that interesting.
Unfortunately Dane DeHaan is so different looking from James Dean that it spoils the movie. His face is roundish and he just doesn’t have the right look. James Franco was a much better fit way back when he did the TV movie. There must have been some actor out there who looked more like the subject. Also having the photographer better looking than the movie star made things unbelievable. Robert Pattinson has been struggling to get the right role after you know what and he is a good actor.
