A nice change from what’s currently on offer at the movies!
I saw this movie at a special screening in LA. There were lots of folks there from all walks of life and all ages – the movie seemed to go over very well with everyone in the room. The move is filled with some very tense moments and excellent performances by Joaquin Phoenix, Mark Wahlberg, Robert Duvall and Eva Mendes. Phoenix and Wahlberg work well together as the troubled brothers and Robert Duvall is perfect as always. I’ve seen some real stinkers at the movies recently (I won’t bother you with the list because it’s too long) so it was refreshing to see that movies can still be well made with characters you can care about and root for. Since the movie wasn’t finished at the time I got to see it, I look forward to enjoying the movie again at local movie theater..
Strong start and dumb finish
On the whole I think James Gray’s movies benefit from his smooth directing, no rushed and furious MTV editing. This leads to a good deal of leniency from the part of critics (as with Night Shyamalan before it became too obvious he was shooting the same narrative structure over and over), a kind of prime for directors who don’t harass the viewer with images + sounds but let the camera roll and the actors do their jobs, the story unfold and so on.
We Own the Night starts very well, the exposure is excellent. Even though the brother confrontation is definitely not new Joaquin Phoenix is so good you just get into the story and beg for the plot to become more complicated. Oops. The problem is the story becomes a one-way highway of the same old/same old. Joaquin Phoenix is ever so good you don’t care too much until it becomes way way too much. In that respect (and lack of respect for the movie-goer) the movie ends in a lame way, rushing an happy and clean and tidy and moral conclusion.
The last lines (see the so-called “memorable quotes”) say it all. It perfectly reflects that a smooth director may be too smooth on writing. Bringing sentiments before the camera is miles away from shooting scripted sentimentalism and I think James Gray has a problem with his characters’ emotions since he is only able to play on pathos and good acting.
