He took her away…on the fly.
In this intense and emotional tale of compassion, rescue and love, director Mike Figgis portrays the antithesis of the Richard Gere he had shown us three years before Mr. Jones’ release: A needy, fragile, unstable yet creative and fascinating character versus the sinister, cold-blooded and self-confident officer Dennis Peck in Internal Affairs.
Gere’s ability to absorb the script and bring it to life through his inimitable histrionic demeanor has once again amazed me, bringing me into the scene as if I were observing from behind the camera. Another example of a woman assisting a man throughout his struggle is Figgis’ Leavign Las Vegas, where Elizabeth Shue chooses to be by Nicholas Cages’ side, with the exception of a very sad ending (In this case we had pills instead of bottles). From Final Analysis, Gear switches into the patient’s role, making us hold our breath and, needless to say, get a good use out of our handkerchiefs.
Something is happening here, but you don’t know what it is, do you, Mr. Jones?
I don’t know very much about bipolar depression, aside from reading biographies of Robert Lowell, the poet. I have to say though that Richard Gere is outstanding in this movie. It started showing on ITV2 and his performance drew me into the story- I had to watch it to the end.
It’s a brave premise for a Hollywood film but “Mr. Jones” is let down by a flawed script. I was offended by the way the doctor was portrayed. Of course she was played by a stunning actress, of course she became attached to her patient- to the point of invading his privacy by looking up his friends from his time at music college twenty years earlier. Oh, and of course (SPOILER- in more ways than one) she slept with him as well. She offers to resign which keeps her from being professionally ruined sorry, but I can’t see a qualified and experienced psychiatrist falling in love with her patient, let along sleeping with him while he’s still under treatment. The ending peters out as well- to suggest that they will become a couple, I suppose.
The hospital scenes are strong and moving, as is the the subplot about the young student. This could have been an interesting study of people in emotional distress. Too bad they couldn’t match Mr. Jones with unsentimental and uncompromising portraits of those trying to help him.
