Ever have one of those days…?
From the director who brought us “Kid Safe”, an educational drama that teaches kids what to do in emergency situations, comes “Stuck”, a movie about grown-ups doing everything they possibly can do WRONG in an emergency situation.
The frightening thing is that this tale is no joke. At the heart of the story is a true event that happened in Texas in 2001 (the woman’s real name is Chante Jawan Mallard). But I strongly advise you NOT to look it up until after you’ve seen this movie, otherwise the fun of this bizarre, unbelievable movie will be shadowed by the harshness of reality. The Texas case has been retold & dramatized several times, but this is the first time I’ve seen it done with a funny-ish presentation which effectively diffuses its disturbing nature and makes it “entertaining”.
I loved this movie. It’s not exactly a thriller, not a comedy, not a straightforward drama but a very psychotic mix of all three. The DVD description tries to make it look like a tense thriller while the trailer makes it look like a comedic romp. Yes, it has elements of both, but the best way to take this movie is as a total surprise, no expectations of any particular genre.
So I won’t say much about the plot except that it’s got a dash of Stephen King’s “Misery”, a bit of the Coens’ “Fargo” and a squirt of Ira Levin’s “Deathtrap”. It’s basically a story about having the absolute worst day of your life. And I don’t mean just getting fired or dumped or a speeding ticket. I’m talking about a day so bad that Job from the bible would buy you a drink.
Normally movies like this stress me out, but this one crosses so far into catastrophe that it becomes surreal, detached, and darkly humorous. So you can shut off your sympathies and just watch the fun. Each actor was excellent, beginning with Stephen Rea (keyboardist for Strange Fruit in the movie “Still Crazy”!) playing the role of a schlep who can’t get a decent break if it hit him at 40 mph, literally. Then there’s Mena Suvari (American Beauty, Caffeine) who plays an average girl who somehow taps into her inner psycho. Her slow, neurotic descent makes the her character more believable and engaging than the real Mallard ever was. But for my money the show-stealer is Russell Hornsby in one of his earliest big screen roles, playing the part of a tough guy drug dealer who, in reality, can’t defend himself against a chopstick. Russell’s character is what injects the comedic element into this otherwise nonstop tension piece, adding to the film’s unique quirky personality.
In addition to the aforementioned classic films, I would suggest this movie to people who enjoyed “Heathers”, “Super” and an obscure diamond called “Don McKay” with Elizabeth Shue as the crazy femme fatale. All of these films are memorable for their genre-stretching approach to murder & mayhem, and “Stuck” fits right in with the best.
Another quality product from a horror vet
Stuart Gordon’s next film after the excellent “Edmund” is “Stuck”, another quality product that is getting a limited theatrical release. A young woman (Mena Suvari), who is slightly high, hits a down-on-his-luck man (Stephen Rea) who wasn’t looking where he was going. Treating the man more as a nuisance than as a victim, the woman abandons the idea of taking him to the hospital and takes him home instead — to her garage. The woman’s life gets increasingly more complicated when the man refuses to die in her windscreen. John Strysik’s screenplay explores the hardening of attitudes towards death and the demise of sympathy within the structure of a grisly horror pic. Gordon does a great job of setting up the lives of the two leads before they, quite literally, intersect. The scenes of Rea attempting to extract his broken body from from the crushed windscreen are howlingly gross (and fun). The special make-up effects are convincing and the naturalistic cinematography by Denis Maloney perfectly compliments Gordon’s intentions. Like the director’s first feature, “Re-Animator”, this is original, thrilling, intelligent, and bloody. It’s funny, too, in a wrong sort of way.
