Like a Great, Forgotten Movie From the 70s
_Stander_ was completely fascinating, from start to finish. I don’t know when the last time was I saw a movie that I enjoyed so completely. It really was like some overlooked classic from the early 70s, in the styles and the composition. The colors have just the right washed-out look to make you think this film might be a contemporary of films like _Dog Day Afternoon_ or _Network_. And the settings, the costumes, the cars–all the period details bring us right back to the mid-70s. Never having visited South Africa and not really knowing that much about it, I almost feel like I’ve had a bit of a crash course in South African history and culture after watching the film. It’s amazing that Thomas Jane, who hasn’t exactly had the most memorable career to date, could so completely inhabit this character and bring him to life. This is the same guy who was the romantic lead in the insipid _The Sweetest Thing_! And the morose protagonist of _The Punisher_. He needs to keep stretching and looking for these more offbeat roles. And it’s always a pleasure to see the beautiful Deborah Kara Unger in a film–here she plays Stander’s wife. I won’t recount the plot–plenty of other posters have already–but just urge you to rent this movie if you get the chance. It was immensely entertaining.
Terrific movie, well done all the way!
This has to be one of the best “unknown” movies I have ever seen. Based on a true story “Stander” deliver the goods in all terms. The acting is great, the story is well told, and direction very good. You can actually sympathize with the movie’s main character, Andre Stander who is played by Thomas Jane, to bravura effect! The movie is never an action movie, though the story allows it to be, but a highly suspenseful and engaging viewing. Why it wasn’t released at the cinemas. I have no idea. But this movie needs your time and money, because it is that good. Really. It was refreshing to see a really well made movie from Hollywood, beneath all the crap that usually comes out… If you ask me, you should not rent this movie, you should, like me, BUY it!
