#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – NED RIFLE is the third and final chapter of Hal Hartley’s tragicomic epic begun with HENRY FOOL (1997, TIFF) and continued with FAY GRIM (2007). At once a saga concerning the Grim family of Queens and how their lives are turned upside down by the arrival of the self-proclaimed genius Henry Fool, the trilogy is also an illustration of America’s grappling with ideas, art, politics, and religion over the course of 20 years. In this swiftly paced and expansive conclusion, Henry and Fay’s son Ned sets out to find and kill his father for destroying his mother’s life. But his aims are frustrated by the troublesome, sexy and hilarious Susan, whose connection to Henry predates even his arrival in the lives of the Grim family.

Hartley doing what Hartley does best
Ned Rifle ends the Henry Fool trilogy in classic Hal Hartley style, with damaged people unable to connect or to explain themselves.
This was a relief after Fay Grimm, the Henry Fool sequel that occurred during Hartley’s dalliance with genre storytelling, something he failed to ever get a handle on.
The movie begins as a revenge tale, with Henry’s son deciding to hunt down and kill his father for ruining his imprisoned mother’s life. Along the way he joins up with a mysterious and sexy scholar with a plan of her own.
That description makes it sounds like a genre film after all, and in a way this movie ably bridges classic Hartley with genre Hartley.
The original cast is still there and is excellent, with a slightly mad Henry and a disillusioned Simon. New to the trilogy is Aubrey Plaza as the mystery woman. Plaza is a perfect Harley actor able to work within his peculiarly affectless emotionalism.
This movie is what I expect from Hartley; quirky humor, opaque characters, complex motives, and within that more emotion than one might expect. While it’s not quite up to the level of early Hartley films like Trust or Surviving desire, it definitely scratches the Hartley itch.
Great film and a must-see for Aubrey Plaza fans
I just now learned this is a follow-up to other films, I think it works perfectly fine on its own. It´s lightning fast, a pure script film. There are no transitions shots whatsoever as if the rule on the filming set was “just say your line, hit the mark and let´s move on to the next scene”. It certainly cuts the BS. Every scene, every line of dialogue is there for a good reason. The film has nice rhythm and a strong sense of purpose. The humor is dry and quick, symbolism is timely. This film has many virtues, I would recommend it specially to aspiring film makers, as it does much with very little. There are some bits of bad acting, as you could expect, but somehow it isn´t an issue, the script keeps it interesting. There are eloquent speeches with big words but it´s all not that pretentious, it´s quite simple, really. Good stuff
