Stunning, intelligent thriller about the dangers of heart vs. head!
It’s not hard to put together a monster film. You throw one insane guy together with a hero, and add a car chase. The Ledge is nothing like this, and that’s why it’s so impressive.
The main struggle is between a Christian with extreme beliefs, and an Atheist who just wants out. Uniquely, it’s the only film I can think of that has an openly atheist hero and an A-list cast. And ironically, the few people who have complained about this show exactly what the film is trying to portray: that some people are so intolerant of atheism that even one movie among the thousands in history is too much for them.
To me, the star of this film is Patrick Wilson, who plays the fundamentalist. Instead of becoming a monster, his portrayal links completely normal passions like love and protection and revenge that we can all identify with, but then takes it to the natural conclusion, egged on by his convictions that anything he decides to do must be blessed.
Thus the central thesis of the film — that belief can go too far — is played out on a small stage. This is a drama of just 6 people, but the intricate explosions between them pull at the heartstrings far more effectively than a car chase in an action film would. We hear so much about the dangers of religion in big stories like 9-11, gay rights, and abortion rights. Here is a film about the dangerous of religion in the everyday, the dramas so commonplace that everyone who watches can find something in their own lives to compare it with.
Sure, I’ve never walked out onto The Ledge. But something about the masterful writing and acting in this film creates an authenticity that is undeniable.
Go ahead. Rant against atheism. Show us how intolerant you are. Violent words and deeds are the response of someone backed into a corner, desperate not to lose it all, just like “Joe” is in this film.
Uninventive and mediocre
The first problem is that the film tried to be thought provoking, but it didn’t succeed in this, seeing as the whole Christianity vs atheism argument used in this movie was pretty uninventive and uneducated – basically, “I’m a raging atheist because some religious people are bad guys and blow up things”. Go figure. Found it also pretty strange why the lead got that carried away in all those arguments about religion, I mean none of the discussions with the husband were even closely heated which brings me to another point – acting.
Some people were saying that Liv Tyler seemed rather distant and apathetic in this movie. I don’t necessarily object, but her characters have that feel in more movies than one which isn’t necessarily a bad thing and it works for some actresses. The main problem was the lead – Charlie Hunnam who – judging on this movie alone, just can’t act – considering what he had been through and that he was about to commit suicide, he seemed to be doing pretty OK at the rooftop, telling his story like he was having a beer with a friend. Convincing? If you want a true portrait of someone in a tight situation and able to convey that emotion as well, try Gosling as Henry Letham in Stay. When it comes to drama genre, you somehow need to be able to associate with the people in the movie on some sort of a level, but in this case, it was really hard to do so.
All in all, the movie was trying to be artistic and emotional, but it never felt convincing because of the booming mediocrity of each aspect.
