Much better than most would have you believe
This film has suffered some pretty undue criticism. It gets the dreaded `BOMB’ rating in Leonard Maltin’s guide, followed by `The worst film of a great director.’ I haven’t seen more than a couple of Penn’s other films, so I can’t comment on that, but it is hardly a bomb. Sure, it is a little slow moving, and it doesn’t quite feel like the themes of the film were totally panned out, but most of the film is very good. I’m assuming Brando’s the problem with most of the film’s detractors. Wow, is his performance weird here. If you ever wanted to find the missing link between The Godfather and Apocalypse Now, here it is. He plays a bounty hunter of sorts hired to discover some horse thieves and murderers. This character is very eccentric, and I’m guessing that Brando had a lot of artistic input on this one based on his later career. He’s basically a psycho killer, and he seems much more lawless than the criminals he’s seeking. He also speaks with an Irish brogue, some of the time. Personally, the waxing and waning accent is my only real problem with the role, and I’m not a big accent baby anyway. It’s a tiny flaw in what is otherwise a very interesting performance. Brando creates a very memorable character. Jack Nicholson plays his rival. He’s almost ready to go straight, having found a nice, small ranch and a girlfriend (Kathleen Lloyd). His performance is subdued, and I really think Nicholson is best when he’s like that. This isn’t his greatest performance, but it is subtle and it’s very good. The flaws of the film are offset by the number of great scenes in it. Almost every single actor gets one scene alone with Brando, and both Randy Quaid and Harry Dean Stanton deliver excellent performances especially in those scenes. Nicholson’s two best scenes are also alone with Brando. I would guess than he had something to do with their co-star; I do think Brando deserves some credit for the excellence of these scenes. Penn’s direction is nothing to write home about. I love the two other films I’ve seen by him, Mickey One and Bonnie and Clyde, but, let’s face it, he was more or less ripping off the Italian and French cinemas of the time, respectively. Missouri Breaks is much more straighforward in that respect, and perhaps it is here that it could have used a boost of energy. 8/10.
MGM Settling The Score ???
Marlon Brando, gloriously over the top here, disliked the movie industry. Were there any particular bad feelings towards MGM ?
It seems to be so, since this Studio first of massacred the truly great film THE FUGITIVE KIND, in which Brando shines (and seems to be the fore-bearer of Nick Cage in ‘Wild At Heart’), by distributing it as a DVD-release that might very well be the worst around, easily as bad as the Fox Lorber atrocities.
And now there is the release of this unique film. Celebrating two icons who never played together in any other film (Nicholson and Brando), with a strong supporting cast (Oh yes, Miss Lloyd plays her Jane as unglamorous as possible and achieves a good and lasting impression !!) and superb camera-work.
That is, if you can see it on this DVD… The image, supposedly in the Aspect Ratio of 1.85 : 1 according to the info on the box, is so horribly cropped we might as well call this Pan & Scan. Furthermore, there has been made no effort to have the film look proper; the footage has been slapped onto the DVD unceremoniously and without any care.
WHY ??! What did Brando do to MGM to have them hating him so much ??!!
Or should we be thankful that this studio has taken the trouble of giving us this DVD of a FANTASTIC one-of-a-kind FILM, which has been trashed by ‘those who know’ for so many decades ? Even if it means that the quality of the DVD is stupendously bad ???
Dear executives of MGM, please give us your wonderful films in a way it will be a true treat to watch them ?!
